Tight end Marcedes Lewis is leaving the only NFL team he’s ever known.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are releasing Lewis, per Mark Long of the Associated Press.
Lewis has spent his entire career in Jacksonville. The Jaguars drafted him in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft. He went on to play 12-straight seasons with the team. He’s totaled 375 catches for 4,502 yards and 33 touchdowns.
The UCLA product should be able to find a new team relatively soon. Lewis is a veteran tight end who still can be productive. The former UCLA star will probably be better severed as a second-string tight end in his 13th season in the NFL.
