Marcedes Lewis. . . 10. player. 52. . Tight End. Marcedes Lewis. Marcedes Lewis

Marcedes Lewis was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2006 NFL Draft. He played for the Jaguars for 12 seasons, where he recorded 375 receptions, 4,503 yards, and 33 touchdowns. He played in 170 games, starting 157. He would leave Jacksonville and continue his career in Green Bay, where he played from 2018 to 2022. Last season, he played for the Chicago Bears, however, as of right now, he is not listed on the Bears' official roster.

When I wrote this article, there was nothing I could find that confirmed or denied he decided to retire, and has him listed as a free agent.  At 40 years old, he’s played an outstanding 18 years in the NFL, totaling 436 receptions, 5,114 yards, and 40 touchdowns.  Of the players in my top ten, he’s played the longest and has 268 games under his belt.

Monte Jackson was a trade selection of the Los Angeles Rams in the 1975 draft. He only spent three seasons with the Rams, before joining the Oakland Raiders for the next five seasons. In 1983, he returned to the Rams for his final season. He played in 112 games, starting 75. He was a first-team All-Pro in 1976 and a Pro Bowler, when he recorded a league-leading ten interceptions and returned three of them for touchdowns. He finished fourth in AP Defensive Player of the Year voting that year as well.

He followed up the 1975 season with another Pro Bowl and was voted second-team All-Pro while recording five interceptions.  He is a Super Bowl champion, having won with the Raiders in 1980 in a season when he started ten games.  He finished his career with 23 interceptions, returning them for 289 yards, three touchdowns, and four fumble recoveries in a nine-year career.
