Report: Packers bring back TE Marcedes Lewis on 1-year deal

ESPN reported Wednesday the Packers are bringing back 35-year-old tight end Marcedes Lewis on a one-year deal worth $2.25 million.

Lewis started 11 games for Green Bay last season and caught 15 passes.

His Packers teammates made it known all last year that receiving isn’t where Lewis’s value lies. Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Jones and coaches all lauded his ability as a blocker and a leader in the locker room.
