Former Irish offensive lineman Chris Stewart knows how to study. From playbooks to law textbooks and now playbooks again, studying has become a way of life for the Spring, Texas, native.

Stewart eventually wants to become a lawyer, but today he is focused on trading the blue and gold of Notre Dame for the green and white of the New York Jets. Shortly after the NFL lockout ended last month, the 6-foot-5 guard received a phone call from the Jets offering him an invitation to training camp and an opportunity to make their roster. Jets offensive line coach Bill Callahan is confident that Stewart has a future in the league, whether it is in New York or with another NFL squad.

Like many current and former Irish athletes, Stewart (@chris_stewart5) is a Twitter aficionado. Earlier this morning, he shared his appreciation for his NFL opportunity.

Stewart will continue his NFL journey on Sunday when the Jets host the Cincinnati Bengals in their second preseason game of the year. For more on Stewart's professional aspirations, check out Dennis Waszak's recent Associated Press story.
