Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis knows he has struggled this season. He doesn't need anyone to point it out, either.
Lewis remembers every dropped pass, every missed assignment and every wrong route. That's because the Pro Bowl tight end is his harshest critic.
He understands the whispers and occasional boos.
He's hopes to silence them, too, beginning this week at Cleveland.
A year after setting career marks with 58 catches for 700 yards and 10 touchdowns, Lewis has 16 receptions for 170 yards and no scores. The most memorable aspect of his season has been several dropped passes. It's not what anyone expected after Lewis signed a five-year, $35 million contract that included $17 million guaranteed during training camp.
