The New York Jets announced Wednesday that they’ve waived former third-round WR ArDarius Stewart.
The Jets had to add Stewart to their active roster today, as the roster exemption they received for him was set to expire. However, New York determined that he wasn’t worth the roster spot and elected to move on from him.
Stewart just finished serving a two-game suspension for violating the league’s PED policy.
Stewart, 24, is a former third-round pick of Jets back in 2017. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $3.25 million contract and set to make base salaries of $592,500 and $688,750 over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2017, Stewart appeared in 15 games for the Jets and caught just six passes for 82 yards receiving and no touchdowns. He also rushed for 27 yards and contributed 173 kick return yards on special teams.
