Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis has been with the team since he was Jacksonville’s first-round draft pick in 2006. But he appears to be on the way out.

Two different stories in the Florida Times-Union in the last couple days have floated the possibility of the Jaguars trading Lewis. The problem is, Lewis turns 31 next month, is coming off a season in which he caught just 18 passes, and is due a $6.65 million base salary this season. Would anyone want him?

Maybe, if the Jaguars are willing to pay part of that $6.65 million. One story suggests that the Jaguars would be willing to pay part of that salary in order to facilitate a trade. That would be similar to what the Buccaneers just did, agreeing to pay part of Dashon Goldson’s 2015 compensation before shipping him off to Washington.

Another story suggests that Jacksonville is seeking a late-round pick for Lewis. That would likely be about all the Jaguars could get. Lewis was a Pro Bowler in 2010, but he’s nowhere near a Pro Bowl level anymore. The Jaguars may be at the point where they’d take anything they could get for him.
