Marcedes Lewis: Jaguars ‘disrespected me’ with late release

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis says he has been released after 12 seasons with the team.

Lewis told The Associated Press on Tuesday he got the news from his agent and feels “disrespected” by the timing of the move. It came a week after free agency began.

The New York Jets’ trade with Indianapolis for the No. 3 pick (in exchange for the sixth selection and three second rounders) was a harbinger of a potential bidding war for quarterbacks. Even if the deal doesn’t precipitate another major move, it is indicative of the mindset many teams might employ now that the initial wave of free agency has defined their most glaring needs.

Browns — Sam Darnold, QB, USC: Don’t be swayed by Hue Jackson’s declaration that Tyrod Taylor is his 2018 starter. In reality, the ex-Bills passer is at best a bridge and shouldn’t dissuade the team from taking a quarterback here. While Saquon Barkley should warrant serious consideration, waiting to take a franchise QB until the fourth pick (or later) is a dangerous game given how many other clubs look ready to pounce. With Darnold, Cleveland could finally secure its long-needed centerpiece. 

The deal is not official yet, according to the sources, but the Colts and Grant are expected to get it done. Grant visited the Colts on Friday but left Saturday without a contract. He was scheduled to also visit with the Raiders, but it seems no deal was reached during that stop, either.

Grant would give the Colts a key piece at a very weak position. The Colts have very little experience at receiver behind veteran Pro Bowler T.Y. Hilton. Chester Rogers, coming off an injury-plagued season, is still yet to prove he can take the next step. Depending on what the Colts can acquire through the NFL Draft, Grant could be an immediate contender to be the team’s No. 2 receiver behind Hilton.

One person can’t do it alone, which is why the Bears Vancouver Canucks Cheap Jerseys spent the offseason buffering their quarterback. Moving forward, Trubisky must Top Cheap Jerseys prove he’s worthy of being the focal point all of Chicago revolves around.
