Per Jenna Laine of ESPN, the Bucs are planning to cut third-year cornerback M.J. Stewart.
Source tells me that the Bucs are cutting cornerback M.J. Stewart. He was a second-round draft pick by the Bucs in 2018.— JennaLaineESPN (@JennaLaineESPN) August 6, 2020
Stewart was taken with the No. 53 overall pick in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft. The Bucs have tried to carve out a role for Stewart over the years, but nothing has worked.
It’s an unfortunate ending for Stewart who finishes his career in Tampa Bay with 68 combined tackles, five PBUs, two TFLs, and two quarterback hits.
