Marcedes Lewis on Nick Foles and a possible return to the Jags
Former Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis says the Jags shouldn’t go all in on Nick Foles, but rather sign him to a short-term deal with an eye towards quickly drafting and developing another quarterback.
In an interview with TMZ, Lewis laid out his ideal scenario that would see the Jaguars sign Foles for $16 or $17 million a year and then draft Dwayne Haskins out of Ohio State.
Lewis was a first round draft pick for the Jaguars in 2006 and spent 12 seasons in Jacksonville before being unceremoniously cut in early 2018.
He received only minimal playing time with the Green Bay Packers last season and now, as an unrestricted free agent, it looks like a return to the Jags might be in the cards for the veteran tight end.
Lewis looked like he might soon have some news to share when asked if he had already signed a contract with a team and if he wanted to return to Jacksonville.
“I’m in the middle of it now,” Lewis said with a grin. “I’m not going to say nothing yet.”
