ArDarius Stewart: Arrested Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart was arrested Thursday in Alabama for carrying a firearm without a permit, Rich Cimini of reports.

Stewart never panned out as a third-round draft pick with the Jets and ultimately was 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.

ArDarius Stewart: Waived by Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart was waived by the Redskins on Tuesday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

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.

Redskins' ArDarius Stewart: Lands contract with Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart signed a reserve/future contract with the Redskins on Monday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Stewart spent time with the practice squads of the Jets, Raiders and Redskins this season, but he never garnered a promotion to an active roster. The former 2017 third-round pick now enters the offseason buried on Washington's roster, and he may need to stand out on special teams in order earn a long-term role.

ArDarius Stewart: Finds another practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins signed Stewart to their practice squad Wednesday.

Stewart spent time with the Jets' and Raiders' practice squads this season, but wasn't able to parlay either opportunity into a promotion to the active roster. The 2017 third-round pick played in 15 games for the Jets as a rookie, hauling in six passes for 82 yards.

ArDarius Stewart: Released from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart was released from the Raiders' practice squad Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

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.

ArDarius Stewart: Joins Oakland's practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders signed Stewart to their practice squad Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Stewart was waived by the Jets earlier this season shortly after serving a two-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy. The 2017 third-round pick remained with the organization as a member of the practice squad before getting cut on an injury settlement in early October. Now apparently back to full strength, Stewart has found a new home and could get an appointment to Oakland's 53-man roster with Martavis Bryant (knee) expected to miss multiple weeks and Jordy Nelson (knee) nursing a bone bruise that could threaten his availability for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

ArDarius Stewart: Let go from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets released Stewart from the practice squad with an injury settlement Friday, Rich Cimini of reports.

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.

ArDarius Stewart: Placed on practice squad injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets placed Stewart on the practice squad injured list, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

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.

ArDarius Stewart: Waived by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets opted to waive Stewart on Wednesday, Andy Vasquez of reports.

Stewart served his two-game suspension for the use of PEDs, 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.

Jets' ArDarius Stewart: Roster spot in jeopardy with suspension over
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 reports.

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.

Jets' ArDarius Stewart: Survives cuts for now
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart (suspension) wasn't cut by the Jets, so he'll remain with the team heading into the season.

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.

Jets' ArDarius Stewart: Snags 17-yard catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart (suspension) caught one of two targets for 17 yards in Thursday's 15-13 preseason loss to Washington.

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.

Jets' ArDarius Stewart: No catches in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart (suspension) 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.

It's discouraging to see a goose egg next to Stewart's name on a night in which 12 different Jets recorded at least one catch. The 2017 third-rounder is rapidly approaching bust status, and it doesn't help that he'll start the regular season with a two-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's policy on PEDs.

Jets' ArDarius Stewart: Officially suspended two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart was officially suspended two games Friday due to a violation of the league's substance abuse policy, Rich Cimini of reports.

As speculated last week, Stewart has tested positive for a banned substance and is officially ineligible to play in the first two games of the season. Given the stiff competition taking place within the team's crowded receiving corps, this infraction could put Stewart in jeopardy of losing his roster spot. With that said, the receiver's ability to contribute on kick returns could make him a priority for Jets coaches to keep around.

Jets' ArDarius Stewart: Facing two-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart is facing a two-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The 2017 third-round pick allegedly tested positive for a diuretic or masking agent. He'll still be eligible for training camp and the preseason, but this won't help Stewart's chances to earn a meaningful role in a receiving corps with Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse, Quincy Enunwa (neck), Terrelle Pryor (ankle), Chad Hansen and Andre Roberts. Despite his draft status, the 24-year-old may enter camp on the roster bubble, following a rookie season with six catches in 15 games. There should be another update coming soon, as the NFL has yet to announce the suspension.

Jets' ArDarius Stewart: Should be safe for 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart likely will keep his roster spot, Rich Cimini of reports.

A third-round pick last year, Stewart caught six passes for 82 yards as a rookie and now faces an uphill battle to earn a significant role. In addition to last year's starting wideouts, Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse, the Jets will have Terrelle Pryor (ankle), Quincy Enunwa (neck) and 2017 fourth-round pick Chad Hansen competing for snaps. Stewart figures to stick around on the 53-man roster, but he may end up fifth or sixth on the wideout depth chart.

Jets' ArDarius Stewart: Struggles through rookie season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart caught six of 13 targets for 82 yards during the 2017 season.

Stewart, a third-round pick out of Alabama, was active for 15 games but was never able to improve on the two receptions he had in the opening week against Buffalo. With a full season under his belt, there will surely be higher expectations for 2018, but his fantasy prospects will be more dependent on the other wideouts on the depth chart and who will be under center for the Jets.

Jets' ArDarius Stewart: Minimal role in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart was not targeted in Sunday's 35-27 loss to the Panthers.

Stewart played nine of 70 offensive snaps and also saw some time on special teams, with Chad Hansen being the Jets' clear No. 3 option at receiver.

Jets' ArDarius Stewart: Catches lone target in loss to Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart caught his lone target but didn't gain any yards during Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

Stewart caught two passes back in Week 1 and Sunday's reception was just his third since. Fellow rookie Chad Hansen finally caught his first passes as a pro Sunday, and while both players should get more reps in light of Jeremy Kerley's four-game suspension, there is fairly minimal fantasy upside given the other options available to quarterback Josh McCown.

Jets' ArDarius Stewart: Active Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart (groin) is active for Sunday's Week 10 tilt against the Buccaneers.

The rookie has apparently sufficiently overcome the groin injury that he sustained in Thursday's practice to take a crack at the Buccaneers' vulnerable secondary Sunday. Stewart could see some extra snaps this week with Jeremy Kerley beginning his four-game suspension.
