Chad Hansen and ArDarius Stewart have found new homes on AFC West practice squads.
Hansen signed with the Denver Broncos practice squad on Tuesday, making Denver his fourth NFL team after two brief stints with the New England Patriots and Tennessee Titans following his release from the Jets.
Stewart, on the other hand, signed with the Oakland Raiders practice squad on Wednesday after a bit of a roller coaster season for him.
Stewart was suspended the first two games of the 2018 regular season for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. The Jets cut Stewart after he returned from suspension and reverted him to the practice squad. New York then released Stewart and he remained a free agent for over a month before winding up in Oakland.
The Jets used their third- and fourth-round picks on Stewart and Hansen in 2017, respectively. The fact that neither one of them are still on the team is an indictment of where the Jets are currently at.
The Jets went without Hansen and Stewart this season even when they were starving for depth at wide receiver. Unfortunately for both Hansen and Stewart, neither one of them will get their revenge game against the Jets this season. New York already faced Denver in one of their three wins on the season.
Hansen played in 15 games, starting one, for New York during his rookie season, catching nine passes for 94 yards. Stewart, meanwhile, played in 15 games and started two in his rookie campaign, catching six passes for 82 yards.
