A first-round pick at UCLA in 2006, Lewis spent his first 12 seasons in Jacksonville before joining the Packers in 2018. Ravens player Sam Koch.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers loves the veteran tight end, affectionately known as “Big Dog.” Lewis’s ability to be a built-in blocker and catch passes has kept his career going even as he ages. With fewer and fewer TEs entering the NFL with honed blocking skills, the Packers are happy to have a veteran like Lewis fill that role and help shape younger titles.

“When you’re in 17th grade, sometimes I wake up and think, ‘Damn, I’m still doing this,'” Lewis said. “Obviously a little longer in the teeth, but I love what I do.”

Additional fun fact: Lewis is the only first-round pick Rodgers has ever passed to by a TD.
