– Stewart on what’s next in his development: “I just want to be an elite player.” Stewart adds that while he’s been labeled as one of the best run-stoppers in the NFL, he wants to get to the next level by showing that he can get after the quarterback as well, specifically “getting more sacks.”

– Stewart says that to get more sacks, he has to take more advantage of the opportunities he has when he’s on the field.

– Stewart on Laiatu Latu: “Been around that guy, he’s a great guy.” Adding him to the defensive front will help with the depth and getting after the quarterback.

– Stewart mentions that Latu’s work ethic, leverage, and footwork are aspects of his game that stand out.

– “It says a lot. They really love us here,” said Stewart on him and DeForest Buckner getting new deals this offseason. “It means a lot to me to be here.”

– What can Stewart and Buckner do together over the next few years? “Just dominate, man.”

– Stewart on new DL coach Charlie Partridge: “He’s a great guy. He’s got a lot of energy, man” Stewart adds that he’s big on the details. When Stewart first met Partridge he told him, “just push me.”

– “The Colts defensive line, we’ve been doing some incredible things, putting up good numbers, and shoot man, we control the game,” said Stewart.

– Buckner scored a touchdown last season, and Stewart was asked about him getting an opportunity: “I gotta get something, man. I’m going to get one though,” he laughed.

– How does Stewart define being an elite player: “It’s just like a goal for me. Like the more sacks I get, I’ll be happy. Of course, if I do have more sacks and be an elite run-stopper, that’s Pro Bowl. It’s a goal on top of a goal.”
