Marcedes Lewis might hold out

The NFL lockout has distracted everyone from potential player holdout stories. But rest assured, once business resumes, there will be some players -- perhaps more than usual, depending on the league rules established for 2011 -- refraining from team activities in an effort to leverage a more lucrative deal.

One of these players could be Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis. The sixth-year veteran had a career year in 2010 and got slapped with the franchise tag in February.

Asked by Tania Ganguli of the Jacksonville.com when he’ll return to Jacksonville, Lewis replied (via text), "I'll be training in LA til my deal is done.”

Ganguli asked if that meant he'd skip training camp if he didn't have a long-term deal.

"It's not in me to do that..guess time will tell," Lewis said.

Lewis’ one-year franchise tender is worth $7.3 million.
