Lewis has agreed to a three-year contract with the Jaguars, the Florida Times-Union reports. Lewis, who will turn 32 in May, will thus reprise his role as the Jaguars' No. 2 tight end behind Julius Thomas. On the heels of a 2015 season in which Lewis caught just 16 passes for 226 yards and no touchdowns, the veteran TE is off the fantasy radar as long as Thomas can stay healthy.
Lewis and the Jaguars are close to agreement on a new contract, ESPN.com reports. Lewis is hopeful of getting his new deal ironed out by the time free agency begins on Wednesday. A career-long Jaguar after being selected in the first round of the 2006 Draft, Lewis caught just 16 passes for 226 yards and no touchdowns last season, but his veteran presence provides good depth behind No. 1 tight end Julius Thomas.
Lewis (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Titans. As long as Julius Thomas remains in the Jags' lineup, however, Lewis' status remains of more import to the team's depth at tight end than it is to fantasy owners.
