Mercedes Lewis TE as a blocking tightens…
one of the best blocking TEs in the NFL.
He is the opposite of Jimmy Graham - mostly a blocker who seldom catches passes. He should get plenty of snaps…even more if they use him at the same time as Graham, with him in-line and Graham split wide like a receiver.
He can also be a surprise receiver, one that blocks and releases, sometimes the D misses covering guys that do that - Rodgers often buys enough time to make those things work.
I like it. The kind of guy who should make us better when the weather starts deteriorating.
Have not had a blocking TE in forever.
Lewis will help the run game big time and pass protection too. He is a good at not being covered because he isn’t known to be a receiver.
