Tight end Marcedes Lewis likes the message that the Jaguars’ new offensive coordinator, Jedd Fisch, gave the players when they reported for the offseason workout program.

“Coach Fisch made it a point to tell everybody we’re going to get the ball in the hands of our playmakers and find our touchdown-makers and move the ball. Period,” Lewis said.

Lewis figures he can be one of the playmakers.

“They’re going to move the ball in this offense. They’re going to give me the opportunity to get the ball in my hands and get busy,” he said.

Lewis has waited two frustrating years for this opportunity.

Lewis, noted for being one of the best blocking tight ends in the league, seemed to making his mark as a big-play receiving tight end in 2010 when he caught 58 passes, including 10 for touchdowns.

Lewis parlayed that into a five-year, $34 million deal, but his career didn’t take off.

He caught 39 passes, none for touchdowns, in 2011, when the Jaguars were a running team with rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Lewis spent much of his time blocking for Maurice Jones-Drew, who rushed for 1,606 yards.

When Mike Mularkey was hired as the team’s coach last year, it seemed to be good news for Lewis. Mularkey was a tight end as a player and had an offense that was supposed to be tight end friendly.

For whatever reason, the Jaguars never found a way to make Lewis a focal point. One of the problems was that their offense ranked 29th in the league.

He caught 52 passes, four for touchdowns, and his longest gain was 26 yards.

Lewis doesn’t want to talk about what happened last year.

“Let’s not even go there. I don’t want to go there in any aspect. I’d like to forget about all that. I’m kind of disgusted with that,” he said.
