Kordell Stewart Reportedly Arrested In Georgia

Former Steelers quarterback Kordell Stewart was reportedly arrested in Alpharetta, Georgia on Wednesday for failure to appear and for driving with a suspended license. He was sent to the Alpharetta City Jail for booking.


The Steelers picked Stewart in the second round of the 1995 NFL Draft. He enjoyed success in his first few years in the league as the "Slash" complement to quarterback Neil O'Donnell. Stewart confused opposing defenses with his ability to run and catch as well as throw. He later became the Steelers' starting quarterback and had mixed results, with his best year coming in 2001, when he had 3,109 yards passing and 537 yards rushing. He eventually left the Steelers and played the rest of his career with the Bears and then the Ravens. He played sparingly in Baltimore, and his last appearance in the NFL was in 2005.


Stewart recently became a broadcaster for the UFL on Versus.
