Only a day after Kamerion Wimbley restructured his deal to stay with the Titans, Tight End Craig Stevens does the same. His new deal still includes $3.4 million on the last year, but clears some additional space this year, dropping his cap number from $3.4 to $1.6 million. Stevens remains an outstanding blocker at the position, and while he didn't get much of a chance to prove his worth as a pass catcher, is a valuable tool for the Titans to use going forward. Beyond all that though, his contract most definitely outweighed his production, and getting that addressed is another sign of things changing in Nashville.

This is but the latest in a move of financially sound moves by the Titans. The approach has been methodical, and with the cap rollover rules the Titans are setting themselves up nicely going forward, careful not to laden themselves with guaranteed deals or unproductive players. Even the Free Agents brought in received incentive-laden contracts, so kudos to Ruston Webster and co on some savvy roster management.
