Tight end Marcedes Lewis agrees to sign with Chicago Bears

Free agent tight end Marcedes Lewis has agreed to a one-year deal with the Chicago Bears, he told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Friday.

It would be his 18th NFL season, which would break a tie with Jason Witten and Tony Gonzalez for the most ever played at the position. Lewis has played in 251 career game, which ranks fifth among active players and 52nd all-time.

The 39-year-old Lewis caught only six passes for 66 yards and two touchdowns for the rival Green Bay Packers in 2022, but he proved his worth as an effective blocker.
