Stewart was arrested Thursday in Alabama for carrying a firearm without a permit, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Stewart never panned out as a third-round draft pick with the Jets and the Alabama product was ultimately let go prior to the 2018 season shortly after being reinstated from a PED suspension. He'll probably find it even harder to find a new job if he receives disciplinary punishment from the league.
Stewart was waived by the Redskins on Tuesdsay, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Stewart's departure from Washington comes just over a week after he signed a futures contract with the team. The second-year receiver didn't see the field once in 2018 after playing in 15 games for the Jets a year ago. He'll look to bounce back and catch on with another team in 2019.
Stewart signed a reserve/future contract with the Redskins on Monday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Stewart spent time with the Jets', Raiders' and Redskins' practice squads this season, but never managed to be promoted to an active roster. The former 2017 third-round pick now enters the offseason buried on Washington's roster, and could need to stand out on special teams in order earn a long-term role.
Stewart signed with the Redskins practice squad Wednesday.
Analysis: Stewart spent time with the Jets and Raiders practice squads this season, and he now has a new team. The 2017 third-round pick played in 15 games for the Jets last year, hauling in six passes for 82 yards. The Redskins will likely get a good look at Stewart to decide if he'd be worth extending a chance to in the offeseason.
Stewart was released from the Raiders' practice squad Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Stewart was released from Oakland's practice squad to make room for fellow wideout Johnny Holton. The 2017 third-round pick showed some flashes in his rookie season with the Jets, during which time he caught six passes for 82 yards and rushed seven times for 27 yards, so it's conceivable that he could find a depth role elsewhere in the league. Stewart has also seen usage as a kick returner, and could latch on somewhere in a special-teams capacity.a
The Raiders signed Stewart to their practice squad Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Analysis: Stewart was waived by the Jets earlier this season after being suspended for violating the NFL's policy on PEDs. The 2017 third-round pick caught six passes for 82 yards in his rookie season, and has now found a new home on the Raiders' practice squad. With Martavis Bryant (knee) expected to miss multiple weeks and Jordy Nelson (knee) nursing a bone bruise, there's opportunity for Stewart to earn a limited role in Oakland's offense if he can impress on the practice squad.
The Jets released Stewart from the practice squad Friday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Stewart suited up 15 games for the Jets last season and made six catches for 82 yards. He was handed a two-game ban over the summer for violating the league's substance-abuse policy and hasn't touched the playing field in 2018.
The Jets placed Stewart on practice squad IR, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Stewart was New York's third-round pick in 2017 and hauled in six passes for 82 yards during his rookie season. He survived initial roster cuts this year, but was waived after his suspension for violating the NFL's policy on PEDs was lifted.
The Jets opted to waive Stewart on Wednesday, Andy Vasquez of Northjersey.com reports.
Analysis: Stewart served his two-game suspension for the use of PED's, but with the end of his suspension also came the end of his roster exemption status. As a result, the Jets have decided to move on from the second-year wideout, leaving him free to sign with other clubs if he passes through waivers unclaimed.
Now that Stewart's two-game suspension is over, the Jets have to decide whether to keep him by 4 PM on Wednesday, Andy Vasquez of Northjersey.com reports.
Analysis: The decision will likely come down to a choice between Stewart and fellow wide receiver Charone Peake, who is a strong contributor on special teams but doesn't pull much weight on offense. While the Jets invested a 2017 third-round pick in Stewart, it's unclear where he would fit in their offense if the team opts to retain him. Expect an update on this situation after the decision is made.
Stewart (suspension) wasn't cut by the Jets, so he'll remain with the team heading into the season.
Analysis: Stewart isn't on the 53-man roster, either, as he's serving a two-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Once the 2017 third-rounder from Alabama is eligible to play, New York will likely have to choose between him and special teams standout Charone Peake, who's currently the sixth wide receiver on the active roster.
Stewart (suspension) caught one of two targets for 17 yards in Thursday's 15-13 preseason loss to Washington.
Analysis: Stewart will be unavailable for the first two regular season contests due to a PED-related suspension, and he's hardly making an impact even when available in the preseason. He's fighting an uphill battle just to make the team.
Stewart failed to come down with either of his two targets in Friday's preseason opener against the Falcons. New York won the game, 17-0.
Analysis: It's discouraging to see a goose egg next to Stewart's name on a night during which 12 different Jets recorded at least one catch. The 2017 third-rounder is rapidly approaching bust status.
