Former Jets wide receiver ArDarius Stewart was arrested for carrying a pistol without a permit, as Michael Casagrande of AL.com writes. The former Jets third-round pick is a free agent, but this incident could hurt his market.
Stewart never took off in New York, despite appearing in 15 games as a rookie in 2017. Last season, the Jets cut him loose after he was hit with a two-game ban for a performance-enhancing drug. In his lone Jets season, Stewart had just six receptions for 82 yards.
As a junior at Alabama, Stewart hauled in 54 passes for 864 yards and eight touchdowns, but he has yet to replicate that production at the pro level. Last year, Stewart spent time on the Raiders’ and Redskins’ practice squads, but never earned a promotion to the 53-man roster.
