Green Bay Packers veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis is chasing an NFL record as he enters his 17th season.
Assuming he’s on the roster in Week 1, Lewis will tie the record for most seasons played by a tight end, joining Tony Gonzalez and Jason Witten. Lewis would like to continue his career into 2023 to break the record.
“This year, I’ll tie the record,” Lewis said, via the team’s website. “It would be great to break it and then I would consider, ‘OK, I’ve done that.’ Eighteen is kind of bizarre, especially at the tight end position.”
