Stewart showcases his confidence during a memorable performance and ends up sharing the goods with a fan on the sidelines.

The Zappers QB took to Instagram to explain why he chose to celebrate this way, while stating, “I’m ok with being the sacrifice to raise awareness! When I played at Memphis, they had me on hydrocodone for a lot of my injuries. I couldn’t function or play, then I tapped into KUSH! I felt better, slept better, ate better, had different creativity… I’m not saying Marijuana is right for everyone. But their are people in this world that use it as a medicine.

Will Stewart’s celebration in the Fan Controlled Football League work in the NFL

While the NFL stage has not been foreign to dramatic or even controversial celebrations, his celebration might not have happened. The league has seen several iconic players like Randy Moss, Terrell Owens, and Stevie Johnson giving fans memorable moments. But the NFL has since taken steps to avoid such controversial situations and has strict measures in place.
