Tennessee Titans tight end Craig Stevens retired on Tuesday, a source told Alex Marvez of Sporting News. Terry McCormick of Titan Insider confirmed the news. 
The 31-year-old spent eight seasons in the NFL, compiling 60 receptions for 724 yards and six touchdowns. 
Stevens signed a one-year, $1.9 million deal in February with the team, per Spotrac, and has been with it at training camp. 
A reason for why he decided to retire has not been revealed yet, but the Titans have plenty of depth at the tight end position with Delanie Walker and Anthony Fasano.
Stevens has never been a factor in the Tennessee passing game. He only had one season in which he recorded more than 12 receptions and 166 yards, though he carved his niche in the league as a blocking tight end. 
According to Pro Football Focus, Stevens headed into the 2015 season ranked as the No. 2 run-blocking tight end with an efficiency rating of 90.
