Stewart, an undersized safety from South Carolina, made the Rams’ team as an undrafted free agent in 2010, and after proving himself as a special-teamer and depth player for a season, he earned a starting job in 2011. He recorded 77 total tackles, an interception return for a touchdown, and three sacks over 13 starts, and it looked as if he could be a strong force in the Rams’ defensive backfield for years to come.

Unfortunately, Stewart began to be plagued by injuries as Jeff Fisher took over in St. Louis, and he quickly fell out of favor with the new coaching staff, losing his starting job for the 2012 season. As injuries plagued the Rams’ secondary in 2013, he made his way back into the starting lineup for six games and recorded 36 tackles, but he never got back to his previous level of play and was let go after the 2013 season.

Though he looked to be maxed out near the end of his tenure with the Rams, Stewart has actually gone on to have greater success in his post-Rams career. He quickly became a starter on a Ravens team that reached the postseason, and he knocked down two passes and recorded three tackles over the first two playoff games of his career on the way to signing a two-year free agent deal with the Denver Broncos, for whom he’s projected to start, this offseason.
