Biography

PRO: David Stewart is a physical, hard-nosed right tackle that excels at the point of attack.  Nicknamed “Big Country,” the Alabama native is an intense competitor that mauls defenders in the run game and provides solid protection in the aerial attack.  His soft-spoken demeanor and country mannerisms off the field run in sharp contrast with his tough, aggressive presence on the gridiron.  A fourth-round pick in 2005 from Mississippi State, Stewart has been a fixture in the starting lineup since the beginning of his second season.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
•    In 2012, Stewart helped running back Chris Johnson rush for 1,243 yards.  A Titans running back has rushed for at least 1,000 yards in each of the seven consecutive seasons in which Stewart has been entrenched as the full-time starter.
•    In 2010, Stewart was a part of an offensive front that allowed 27 sacks, which tied for sixth-fewest in the NFL.  The unit also paved the way for Chris Johnson to finish fourth in the NFL with 1,364 rushing yards.
•    In 2009, was a member of an offensive line that blocked for the NFL’s second-best rushing attack (162.0 yards per game) and opened holes for Chris Johnson who became just the sixth player in NFL history to rush for 2,000 yards.  Also, part of an offensive front that allowed just 16 sacks, the second fewest in the NFL.
•    In 2008, Stewart started all 16 games at right tackle for the second consecutive season and was named second-team All-Pro by the Associated Press.  Was a part of an offensive line that allowed an NFL-low 12 sacks.

TITANS TIDBITS:  
•    The last three offseasons (2011-2013), Stewart has helped put on the Dunk Duchenne celebrity basketball game at Dickson County High School.
•    During the offseason in 2009 and 2010, Stewart participated in a charitable bass fishing tournament and turkey hunt to raise money for wounded soldiers.  The fundraising effort supported “Huntin’ for Heroes” and Paralyzed Veterans of America-Outdoor Recreation Heritage Fund to benefit wounded veterans across the country.
•    In high school, Stewart was nicknamed “Big Country” by friends, which stuck with him through his time at Mississippi State.  Many friends and teammates still refer to him by the nickname.
•    Stewart was raised near Decatur, Ala., in the small town of Moulton.  He was employed on his family’s farm for much of his childhood, building fences and working with the cattle and chickens among a variety of daily tasks.  He hopes to someday run his own chicken farm.
