Report: Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis Won’t Work Out With Team Until He Has a New Deal
Last season, Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis emerged into one of the top players in the league at his position–catching 58 receptions for 700 yards with 10 touchdowns. It’s not questions the Jags would love to have him back in 2011, but the only way that can happen is if they give the former UCLA standout the long-term deal he desires.
According to Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union, Lewis claims he will be working out on his own in Los Angeles and will continue to do so until the Jaguars offer him a long-term deal. The team placed the franchise tag on Lewis–which will end up being just under $7.3 million–back in February, but are unable to negotiate a long-term deal until labor talks come to an end–which means Lewis could be working out in Los Angeles for quite some time.
Lewis is coming off his best season in 2010 and is clearly one of the most dangerous red-zone threats the NFL has to offer. While he won’t be with the rest of his teammates that will begin scheduled practices next week, the Jaguars and their fans need to have a positive outlook on this situation. Considering the Jaguars were willing to negotiate a new contract in the middle of last season, Lewis will most likely end up getting the long-term deal he desires–it’s just a matter of when.
