Among the many reasons for the Titans' great start this season have been timely contributions from the tight ends. The focus throughout the offseason was on the promise of Jared Cook, who has made two tremendous plays; a sprawling 33-yard reception in Week Two and an 80-yard catch-and-run TD in Week Four. TE Craig Stevens has been the biggest surprise of the group, though. That Stevens is a more dependable blocker than Cook isn't news. But his surprisingly soft hands have been a huge asset for QB Matt Hasselbeck. Don't expect Stevens to ever become a focal point of the offense — he is likely more of a two-catch-a-game, pick-your-spots type of player — but his catches are coming at critical moments in games. The same can be said for veteran Daniel Graham, whose only grab on the season was a game winner against his former team, the Broncos, in Week Three.
