Steelers should target Stewart

A trend you will see with the next two players, the Browns had a lackluster secondary last year as they relied on a slew of young and inexperienced players to start. While as starters the group struggled (thus the heavy investment in their secondary this offseason), the Browns defense has some role players that should intrigue the Steelers. The first of them is versatile defensive back, M.J. Stewart.

Stewart joined the Browns last season after getting released from the Buccaneers. He never became a consistent defensive player (he only played 21 percent of the defensive snaps) but he was a regular on special teams and only allowed an 86.3 quarterback rating when he was targeted. He can play as a traditional safety or in the slot on defense, meaning that he could serve a variety of jobs for the Steelers if he were added.

Considering the questions, the Steelers still have at slot corner and in general defensive back depth, a player like Stewart could serve a similar role with the team this season. Considering he can be a regular special teams’ contributor as well; he would be valuable even when not on the defense. Circle his name though, as Stewart would be a versatile body that could garner some slot consideration if he were added.
