Stevens has opted to retire from the NFL, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports. Stevens has spent his entire eight-year career with the Titans, finishing with totals of 60 receptions for 724 yards and six touchdowns. The 31-year-old has been relegated to blocking duty throughout the majority of his time in the league, but was able to carve out a solid career and will now move on to the next chapter in his life.
Stevens re-signed with the Titans on Thursday. The details of Stevens' contract have yet to be revealed, but the blocking tight end will be returning to the Titans for his ninth season. He hauled in 12 receptions for 121 yards and two touchdowns last season. Stevens isn't generally a factor in fantasy formats due to the presence of better pass catching options such as Delanie Walker at tight end.
Stevens caught his lone target for 8 yards in Sunday's 34-6 loss to Houston. Stevens has just 12 receptions for 121 yards and two touchdowns this season. The tight end is an afterthought in a terrible offense.
Stevens caught both of his targets for 11 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over Jacksonville. Stevens has scored in consecutive games, but it's tough to get too excited about his recent success considering the 31-year-old has just six career touchdowns in eight NFL seasons. Don't expect much from Stevens next week against the Jets, as he has just 10 receptions this year.
Stevens one of his two targets for a 20-yard touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Raiders. The blocking tight end made his first catch since Week 9 count, scoring his first touchdown of the season. While he sees the field a fair amount, Stevens is barely ever targeted in the passing game. Delanie Walker is still the tight end to own in Tennessee.
