Analysis: Jacksonville had picked up a $3.5 million option on Lewis last month, but the money was not guaranteed and the team has since added tight ends Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Niles Paul in free agency. Though the 33-year-old hasn't caught more than 25 passes in any of the last five seasons, he's still a strong blocker who should draw some interest on the open market.

Analysis: The 33-year-old Lewis is the longest-tenured player on the team's roster. A first-round draft pick in 2006, Lewis has 375 receptions and 4,502 yards in 157 starts. He ranks third in team history in catches and yards. He ranks second in touchdown receptions (33), trailing only Jimmy Smith (67). Lewis and retired center Brad Meester (2000-13) are the only players in franchise history to appear in 12 or more seasons with the team.
