Tommy Stevens: Earns practice squad spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stevens cleared waivers Sunday and signed with the Saints' practice squad, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The rookie seventh-rounder is considered a run-blocking tight end after catching just 14 passes over four seasons at Mississippi State. While he was unable to secure a roster spot, he could get promoted to the active roster if either Jared Cook, Josh Hill or Adam Trautman is unavailable.

Tommy Stevens: Waived by Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stevens was waived by the Saints on Saturday, Amie Just of Nola.com reports.

The former quarterback-turned-tight end looked like he'd have a good shot of making the final roster due to his unique skillset, but that wasn't the case. Before joining the Saints, he drew some interest from Carolina.

Saints' Tommy Stevens: Playing tight end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stevens is wearing No. 85 at practice and is listed as a tight end on the Saints' roster, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Listed at 6-foot-5, 235, the rookie seventh-round pick is about 15 pounds away from matching the NFL tight end size prototype, and he ran a 4.49-second 40-yard dash at his pro day back in March. Stevens posted a 59.9 completion percentage and 7.2 YPA on 202 pass attempts throughout this college career, but he took 159 carries for 887 yards (5.6 YPC) and 12 TDs, adding 14-62-2 as a pass catcher. The Saints may be grooming Stevens as a replacement for Taysom Hill, who is expected to spend more time focusing on the QB position in preparation for Drew Brees eventually retiring.

Saints' Tommy Stevens: May fill Taysom Hill-like role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saints coach Sean Payton suggested after the 2020 NFL Draft that he anticipates Stevens handling a versatile role in the vein of Taysom Hill, Jeff Duncan of The Athletic reports. "We know the [Hill] role. We invented the role. There's no way I was going to lose this kid," Payton said of the seventh-round pick from Mississippi State.

During their draft prep, the Saints identified the 6-foot-5, 237-pound quarterback as a priority signing in the likely event he went undrafted. However, with Payton receiving word from Stevens' agent that the signal-caller was committed to signing with Carolina as a UDFA, the Saints traded back into the draft to ensure they got their guy. Stevens' underwhelming passing efficiency between stops at Penn State and Mississippi State (59.9 percent completion rate, 7.2 yards per attempt) was the primary reason why most outlets projected him to go undrafted, but his combination of size and athleticism was too tempting for New Orleans to pass up. Like Hill, Stevens will likely be listed as a quarterback on the roster, but expect the Saints to experiment with the 23-year-old out of the backfield, at receiver and potentially on special teams during training camp and the preseason.

Saints' Tommy Stevens: New Orleans selects in seventh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints selected Stevens in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 240th overall.

Stevens (6-foot-5, 235 pounds) arrives from Mississippi State after transferring there from Penn State previously. Stevens is rough as a passer -- he completed only 121 of 202 career pass attempts for 1,469 yards (59.9 percent completion rate, 7.2 YPA), 15 touchdowns and six interceptions in his career, but he's a standout athlete who offers an uncommon rushing threat at quarterback. Stevens' selection could indicate an intention by Sean Payton to shift to a new scheme once Drew Brees is done as starter, a scheme where the quarterback runs frequently.
