Jaguars ink Marcedes Lewis to five-year deal
Marcedes Lewis picked a good season to post the best numbers of his five-year career.
Marcedes Lewis cashes in.
On the heels of a 58-catch, 10-touchdown campaign, the 27-year-old Lewis has reached an agreement with the Jacksonville Jaguars on a new five-year deal, per Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union.
While the exact numbers of the deal have not yet been made available, Stellino reports that Lewis will get “slightly less than $35 million [total] and slightly less than $18 million in guaranteed money.”
The former UCLA Bruin was scheduled to make $7.28 million in 2011 as the Jaguars’ franchise player.
A 2006 first-round draft pick, Lewis ranked second on the team in receptions (58) and first in touchdowns (10) last season.
