Packers moves on 1st day of NFL year

GREEN BAY (WBAY)- On the first official day of the 2019 NFL league year, The Packers did not announce the signings of the 4 free agents they reportedly agreed to terms with on Tuesday.

But according to Rob Demovsky of Cover 2 and ESPN, the team did agree on a one year deal with veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis.


The soon to be 35-year old was used sparingly last season in Mike McCarthy's offense, catching just 3 passes. But his blocking and style may fit better in Matt LaFleur's offense. Plus, he is familiar with new offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett from their time together in Jacksonville.

The Packers also make a move to bring back one of their restricted free agents by reportedly giving the original round tender to receiver Geronimo Allison, which is worth a little over 2 million dollars.


The former undrafted free-agent was on his way to a big season in 2018 before getting injured in week 4 with a concussion. He later suffered a groin injury that ultimately required surgery. He finished the season with 20 receptions in 5 games, including 2 TD's.
