With Greedy Williams (shoulder) and Kevin Johnson (abdomen) both also managing injuries, Stewart could have an opportunity for increased snaps Week 1 against Baltimore if he's able to get fully healthy.

  • Browns' M.J. Stewart: Hampered by hamstring

    Stewart (hamstring) didn't practice Monday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Stewart is in the midst of a fresh start with the Browns after the 2018 second-round pick was cut by Tampa Bay in early August, but now he'll need to overcome another injury -- a common occurrence for the cornerback. The Browns' cornerback corps is littered with injuries, as Greedy Williams (shoulder), Kevin Johnson (abdomen) and Terrance Mitchell (knee) are all sidelined right now, so a quick return to practice could allow Stewart to log some first-team reps.

  • Browns' M.J. Stewart: Finds new home

    The Browns claimed Stewart off waivers Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Selected by the Buccaneers in the second round of the 2018 draft, Stewart suffered through injuries and ineffectiveness during two seasons with the team. Overall, he totaled 68 tackles and five passes defended in 21 appearances. Tampa Bay recently cut Stewart, allowing him to find a new home in Cleveland. He'll provide depth for a cornerback group led by Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams.

  • M.J. Stewart: Time up in Tampa Bay

    The Buccaneers waived Stewart on Thursday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Stewart joined the Buccaneers in 2018 as a second-round pick, but he failed to transform into a reliable member of the secondary over two years with the team. Having lost the starting nickel job in 2019 and even been a late scratch toward the end of the season, the writing was on the wall that Stewart had fallen out of favor in Tampa Bay. Still, it's somewhat surprising to see that the team went so far as to cut the 24-year-old, rather than simply relegate him to a depth role.

  • Buccaneers' M.J. Stewart: Modest sophomore campaign

    Stewart logged 35 tackles (28 solo) and two defensed passes across 10 games during the 2019 season.

    Through 21 career games, Stewart has yet to log a turnover, but he once again served as a steady, albeit unspectacular, member of the Buccaneers' secondary rotation. The 2018 second-round pick dealt with a knee sprain that cost him three games, and he also was a healthy scratch on three other occasions. As his final line indicates, Stewart had next to no IDP value in 2019, and he may have a battle on his hands to hold onto a roster spot next season as a result of his modest first pair of campaigns.
