Jaguars trade rumors: Teams asking about Marcedes Lewis trade

New, comments

Rap Sheel had it first.

The Jacksonville Jaguars aren't trading tight end Marcedes Lewis, but that hasn't stopped teams around the league from asking.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapaport, teams around the league are inquiring about a trade with the 10-year veteran.

Lewis played a full season as recently as 2012, but over the past two seasons has only appeared in 19 games, catching 43 passes for 565 yards and six touchdowns.

While I don't think a trade is likely, I wouldn't be against it for the right compensation. Lewis is entering a contract year, newly signed tight end Julius Thomas is our foreseeable future, and why not? There are good reasons to keep him, but for the right price, there's good reason to let him go as well.

And while Rapaport is a fine journalist, let's not forget who had the inside scoop on Lewis first.
