Stewart caught just six passes last season and sits far down the depth chart behind Jermaine Kearse, Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa and Terrelle Pryor.
Stewart is expected to provide depth at wide receiver along with fellow second-year pro Chad Hansen and Terrelle Pryor behind projected starters Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse and Quincy Enunwa. The Jets are already screwed, and this doesn’t help.
