The Titans and tight end Craig Stevens agreed to a restructured contract on Wednesday, sources familiar with the situation tell Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean. Stevens was previously scheduled to earn $3.5MM in 2015. Now, he’ll instead earn a similar amount to his deal from last season when he made $1.6MM.
The 2008 draft pick suffered a thigh injury last season and was placed on injured reserve after five games. Across the last five seasons, Stevens has hauled in 48 catches for 603 yards and four touchdowns. With his new deal, Stevens will remain with the Titans where he’s a part of a deep tight end stable. Besides Stevens, Tennessee has Delanie Walker and Anthony Fasano on its roster, along with Taylor Thompson and Dorin Dickerson.
Stevens, 31 in September, had a grand total of two receptions for 26 yards in 2014.
