Green Bay Packers sign veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis

FOXBOROUGH, MA - JANUARY 21: Marcedes Lewis #89 of the Jacksonville Jaguars catches a touchdown pass in the first quarter during the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium on January 21, 2018 in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

GREEN BAY — The Green Bay Packers have signed tight end Marcedes Lewis, adding another veteran to back up Jimmy Graham.

The 6-foot-6 Lewis, who turned 34 last week, played 12 seasons in Jacksonville. He ranks third in Jaguars history with 375 catches and second with 33 touchdown receptions.

Lewis also helped the Jaguars run for an NFL-best 141.4 yards per game last year.

He fills out the depth chart at a thin position for the Packers, who signed Graham as a free agent this offseason. Lance Kendricks was the only other tight end with extensive experience on the roster.

The tight end position can be productive on a Packers offense that figures to bounce back in 2018 with a healthy Aaron Rodgers returning at quarterback.
