NASHVILLE, TN, July 22, 2008 – The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms on a multi-year contract with tight end Craig Stevens.
The Titans selected Stevens with their third-round selection (85th overall) out of the University of California Berkeley. The San Pedro, Calif., native was a mainstay on the Bears offense, appearing in 50 games with 33 starts in four seasons, one game shy of the school record. His versatility as a pass protector, run blocker and receiver helped him earn honorable mention All-Pac 10 honors after his sophomore and senior seasons and second-team All-Pac 10 following his junior year. His career statistical totals included 51 receptions for 669 yards and seven touchdowns. In his final season at Cal, the two-time team captain started all 13 games and matched his career-high with 17 receptions for 204 yards and a career-high three touchdowns.
The Titans have now agreed to terms with five of their seven draft choices, only running back Chris Johnson and defensive lineman Jason Jones remain unsigned. The team opens training camp on Friday, July 25th.
