No. 89: Who wore it best? The least used number in franchise history

New, comments

The Jaguars never had a player score a touchdown while wearing No. 89 until Marcedes Lewis was drafted in 2006.

In two decades, the Jacksonville Jaguars have had some great players come through this franchise.

In the spirit of counting things down (and biding our time) until the regular season starts on September 13th, we're taking a jersey-by-jersey look at who wore each of the 99 numbers available best for the Jaguars.

Who wore it best: Marcedes Lewis (2006-Present)

We're finally out of the 90's, meaning we can start looking at tight ends and wide receivers, but the No. 89 jersey doesn't have us looking at very many of those. Lewis is the only Jaguars player in franchise history to score a touchdown while wearing the No. 89 jersey. In fact, the only other two players to wear No. 89 were Curtis Marsh and Chris Luzar -- largely special teams guys who combined for 11 receptions and 162 yards in their combined four seasons.

Even after nine seasons in the NFL, Lewis is still able to make 63-yard scores like this:

Like Chris Clemons, Lewis is the best player to wear his jersey number in franchise history and he's currently on the roster. How long he's on the roster is yet to be determined, but he'll (likely) be in Jacksonville through the end of the 2015 season because there's not much reason to cutting him.
