Marcedes Lewis Didn’t Want To Sign With Packers

Here’s an interesting tidbit. Freshly-signed tight end Marcedes Lewis didn’t want to sign with the Green Bay Packers. God knows why, but here it is.

Okay, we can see how a meeting with Aaron Rodgers and Jimmy Graham might change his mind. Graham will probably be lined up as a receiver most of the time. That leaves plenty of playing time for Lewis. And well, Rodgers is Rodgers.

The real question I have is why wouldn’t Lewis want to sign with anyone, much less the Packers?

The guy is 34 years old. His career is winding down. He was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars back on March 20. The fact that he didn’t sign until May tells us teams weren’t exactly beating down his door.

Lewis was probably lucky to get an offer from any team at all.

So what could have his thought process been?

I can only think of three things.

One, maybe he thinks he’s still a top dog and wanted to go to a team where he thought he could be the No. 1 tight end.

Two, and along those same lines, he thought there wouldn’t be enough balls or playing time to go around in Green Bay.

Three, he was just planning to retire.

Of course, leave it to a Packers beat writer to ask absolutely no follow-up questions.

    Graham, out loud: “Marcedes, Green Bay is a fantastic place for a tight end, you will do really well here”.

    Graham, to himself: “I’m not blocking.”
