Stewart, 23, wound up going undrafted out of Ohio Dominican back in May but later signed on with the Buccaneers before being waived with an injury designation a few weeks later.
After clearing waivers, he reverted to the Buccaneers’ injured reserve but was cut loose back in June. He had a brief stint with the Redskins and later signed on to the Packers’ practice squad.
He has yet to appear in an NFL game.
During his four-year college career, Stewart totalled 196 receptions for 3,197 yards receiving (16.3 YPR) and 25 touchdowns. He also contributed 416 kick return yards and 171 punt return yards to go along with one return touchdown.
Bercovici, 23, signed on with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona State back in May. San Diego, unfortunately, made him one of their final roster cuts as they trimmed down to 53 players.
Since becoming an unrestricted free agent, Bercovici worked out for the Cardinals and Packers but was not signed to a deal.
He also has not appear in an NFL game.
During his four-year college career, he completed 438 passes on 724 attempts for 5,332 yards, 42 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.
