Report: Former NFL receiver Stewart arrested for gun possession
Former Alabama wide receiver and New York Jets draft pick ArDarius Stewart was arrested in Tuscaloosa, Ala., Thursday for carrying a pistol without a permit, AL.com reported.
Stewart was being held on $500 bond, according to the report.
Stewart was selected by the Jets in the third round of the 2017 draft after a
decorated career with the Crimson Tide. Stewart caught 129 passes for 1,713
yards and 12 touchdowns at Alabama in three years.
Stewart played 15 games as a rookie for the Jets but caught just six passes
for 82 yards before being cut in 2018 in the aftermath of a two-game
suspension for testing positive for a performance enhancing drug.
The Raiders and Redskins signed Stewart to their practice squads late last
year and both teams released him shortly thereafter, most recently the
Redskins in January.
