Biography

PRO: Craig Stevens is in his ninth season with the Titans and continues to assert himself as one of the NFL’s best blocking tight ends.  He is among the most veteran members of the team and has the longest current tenure of any player with the Titans.  He was used as a reserve in that capacity in his first two seasons in addition to being a special teams contributor. In 2010, he moved into a full-time offensive role and has remained productive. The 6-foot-3-inch, 263-pounder set career-best marks in catches (23) and receiving yards (275) in 2012.

•    In 2015, Stevens appeared all 16 games for the second time in his career, reached the 100-game mark for his career and tied a career high with two touchdown receptions.
