Craig Stevens To Un-Retire, Will Sign With Titans

According to sources close to Craig Stevens, he is in talks to come out of retirement and sign with the Titans on a 1yr/$2.5 million dollar deal. After sitting out a year for personal reasons, he is expected to announce his return to the NFL this week.  

Last week, Head Coach Mike Mularkey was gushing about Stevens in a press conference following practice:

(on the tight ends blocking)

We’ve got some guys there, still Jerome (Cunningham) and Tim (Semisch) and Jonnu (Smith), who’ll put his face in there and will try and block you. We’re still trying to find who and what plays they block best. There’s some specific plays that takes a kind of player you want at that point. We’re still finding that out, that’s what this training camp is about. You can’t do it in the offseason, you got to do it here when the pads were on.

(on if the offense changes without a true blocking tight end on the roster)

Craig (Stevens) is unique, I’ll say that. Anthony (Fasano) is a good blocker, but I wouldn’t put him in the same class as Craig Stevens.

Stevens is an excellent blocker and will provide immediate depth at the tight end position. Stevens has played 109 games for the Titans and has started 72 of them.
