The Titans have engaged in contract talks with free agent TE Craig Stevens.

Stevens is a 31-year-old blocking tight end-only. He caught just 12 passes last season and blocked on 344 of his 436 offensive snaps. Stevens won't be expensive to bring back. He's spent his entire eight-year career in Tennessee.
Feb 16 - 10:51 PM

Titans TE Craig Stevens has restructured his contract, dropping his base salary from $3.5 million to $1.6 million.

It'll be the last year of his deal. Turning 31 on September 1, Stevens brings nothing to the table in the passing game and is an overrated blocker. He finished last season on injured reserve with a torn quad. Stevens is a classic Titans player in the Ruston Webster era: There is zero upside to him.

Titans placed TE Craig Stevens (quad) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Stevens suffered the injury in Week 5 and had surgery on Wednesday. The Titans promoted TE Brett Brackett to replace him on the active roster.

Titans TE Craig Stevens is out for the remainder of the season after undergoing quad surgery Wednesday.

Stevens had a tendon issue in his quad. The blocking tight end played just 70 offensive snaps this season, catching two passes for 26 yards. He'll be released in the offseason thanks to an asinine $3.25 million salary.
Wed, Oct 15, 2014 02:51:00 PM

Titans TE Craig Stevens has agreed to a pay cut, reducing his 2014 salary from $3.4 million to $1.6 million.

Stevens had two years left on his previous deal at salaries of $3.4 million and $3.5 million. His new deal is a two-year, $5.2 million pact. Stevens, 29, is purely a blocker who caught just two passes for five yards last season.

Reserve Titans TE Craig Stevens (concussion) resumed practicing on Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Stevens is now on track for Sunday's game against the Broncos. A blocker, Stevens has just two catches in 11 games this season.

Titans TE Craig Stevens sustained a concussion late in last week's loss to the Packers.

Stevens filled in for Jared Cook (shoulder), catching two passes for 16 yards before going down. Raw rookie Taylor Thompson is next up on the depth chart. Stevens' season is likely over with career-highs in catches (23) and yards (275).

Craig Stevens, starting in place of the injured Jared Cook, caught two passes for 16 yards against the Jets in Week 15.

Stevens got the start, as expected, over the athletic rookie Taylor Thompson, but he saw just three targets. Stevens was used mainly for his blocking prowess, and he isn't anywhere near being fantasy relevant.
Tue, Dec 18, 2012 12:51:00 AM

Craig Stevens caught five passes for 63 yards in relief of Jared Cook (shoulder) Sunday.

Stevens played 25 total snaps in the first two games of the season, but was called upon for 49 snaps against the Lions. The usual blocking specialist will be a desperation flier if Cook misses time.
Mon, Sep 24, 2012 11:44:00 AM

Titans re-signed TE Craig Stevens to a four-year, $15 million contract.

The blocking complement to Jared Cook, Stevens hauled in nine passes for 166 yards and a touchdown in 2011, starting 11 of his 15 appearances. Set to turn 28 before the 2012 season, Stevens did not grade out well as a blocker according to Pro Football Focus, but the Titans apparently like his potential. Stevens' re-signing may end aging third-stringer Daniel Graham's tenure in Nashville.

The Titans intend to sign free agent TE Craig Stevens to a long-term extension "well" before free agency opens in March.

Despite his passing-game shortcomings, the Titans envision Stevens as an integral part of their offense as a run blocker and complement to catch-first TE Jared Cook. Stevens has only 20 receptions over the past two seasons.
Mon, Jan 9, 2012 03:10:00 PM

Titans declared TE Craig Stevens, OT Byron Stingily, LB Colin McCarthy, DT Zach Clayton, DE William Hayes, QB Rusty Smith, and SS Chris Hope inactive for Week 8 against the Colts.

Stevens can't get over the hump with his troublesome rib injury. The Titans have no other surprises in their inactives.
Sun, Oct 30, 2011 11:56:00 AM

TE Craig Stevens (rib) expects to return following the Titans' Week 6 bye.

The blocking tight end nearly gave it a go in Week 5, so he should be good for Week 7. Through four games, he's made four catches for 73 yards.
Tue, Oct 11, 2011 09:31:00 PM

Titans TE Craig Stevens (rib) started Sunday's loss to the Steelers but saw very limited action.

"I tried to give it a shot and it was just a little too painful," Stevens said. The blocking tight end has four catches through five games.
