The Green Bay Packers have seen several key veterans from the 2022 team leave this offseason. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers left for the New York Jets. Wide receivers Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb followed. The defense saw a few pass rushers sign with other NFC teams as the Packers began a rebuild with younger players. They still had a couple of veteran leaders they had an opportunity to retain in safety Adrian Amos and tight end Marcedes Lewis. A new report revealed the Packers’ decision on Lewis.
The Green Bay Packers will not re-sign Marcedes Lewis
According to a report by Bill Huber with Sports Illustrated, the Packers will not re-sign Lewis this offseason:
“After drafting two tight ends in the 2023 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers will not be re-signing veteran Marcedes Lewis, a source told Packer Central on Sunday night.
Without Lewis, a revered leader and still one of the best run blockers at the position, the Packers will be incredibly young on offense.”
The Packers drafted Luke Musgrave in the second round and Tucker Kraft in the third round of the 2023 NFL Draft. It appears those two rookies will be tasked with replacing Robert Tonyan, who signed with the Chicago Bears this offseason, and Lewis.
Lewis will be hard for the Packers to replace. He was a true blocking tight end and leader for the team. Lewis would have made a great teacher for Musgrave and Kraft. But the Packers must be good stewards of their bank account this offseason.
