I'm thinking he's putting his name in to see what's out there, but I have a hard time believe he's as good as gone or anything like that.
If he's hurt, it doesn't make sense to transfer somewhere else... it's not like transferring helps his foot heal faster. And if he's not hurt, and he's been able to hold off Clifford whenever they've both been healthy, why worry about him closing the gap now? I mean, of course he's closing the gap to a certain point, Stevens hasn't even been able to step foot (sorry) on the field this spring.
It just doesn't quite add up, unless Clifford has been outright named the starter behind the scenes, in which case I feel pretty bad for Stevens tbh. I think he's earned the right to retain the inside track on the starting job unless he truly plays his way out of it during fall camp.
