Former Alabama receiver ArDarius Stewart is making his presence known in the NFL.
A third-round pick of the New York Jets, Stewart could be featured on a rebuilding offense this season. The Jets have no quarterback of the future — 38-year-old Josh McCown is the projected starter — and their once-heralded WR core of Brandon Marshall (released), Eric Decker (released) and Quincy Enunwa (injured) is no more.
Stewart showed his potential Saturday night when he scored a pair of touchdowns against the New York Giants.

At Alabama, Stewart combined with Calvin Ridley to form one of the best WR duos in the country. Stewart caught 54 passes as a senior, totaling 864 yards and eight touchdowns.
The Jets begin their season on Sunday, Sept. 10 against the Buffalo Bills.
