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