Marcedes Lewis, 40, re-signs with Bears ahead of 19th season in NFL

Despite his age, the former Jacksonville Jaguars first-rounder remains one of the best run-blocking tight ends in the game. His strength pairs well in a TE room with Cole Kmet and Gerald Everett, two primary pass-catchers. Bringing back Lewis is the latest smart move by the front office to buffer the offense around No. 1 overall pick Caleb Williams.

If he makes the final roster, Lewis would be in line to break Jason Witten’s record for most regular season games played by a tight end. Witten, the long-time Dallas Cowboys TE, played 271 games. Lewis sits at 268.
