Jaguars TE Lewis signs 5-year, $35M contract
Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis signs 5-year, $35M contract that includes nearly $17M guaranteed
By The Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) ' Pro Bowl tight end Marcedes Lewis has signed a five-year contract worth about $35 million with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Lewis will get nearly $17 million guaranteed.

The Jaguars placed the franchise tag on Lewis after he caught 58 passes for 700 yards and 10 touchdowns ' all career highs ' in 2010. The 6-foot-6, 262-pounder signed a one-year tender worth $7.28 million, the average salary of the five highest-paid tight ends in the league.



The NFL lockout prevented Lewis' agent and the Jaguars from working out a long-term deal, and Lewis skipped the first five days of training camp while waiting for a new deal. He reported Monday, but sat out full-contact drills while the contract was being negotiated. He signed it Friday morning and should practice soon.
