Jonathan Stewart Expected to Sign with Giants After Panthers Release

Stewart, who will turn 31 on March 21, will reunite with former Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Mike Shula and general manager Dave Gettleman in NY.

The Giants have agreed to a contract with veteran running back Jonathan Stewart, who was released by the Carolina Panthers after 10 seasons.

The Giants signed Stewart on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Giants backs Orleans Darkwa and Shane Vereen are both set to be unrestricted free agents. "He's a terrific addition for us at this time".

Stewart joins a backfield that includes 2017 fourth round pick Wayne Gallman and 2016 fifth round pick Paul Perkins. He departs Carolina as it's all-time leading rusher, tallying 7,318 yards over 10 seasons. In 2011, he set Panthers records for catches (47) and receiving yards (413) in a season by a running back. The Giants were smart to pursue a player of Norwell's caliber and age (26), because he'd help them immediately and also be there to help once their rebuild is complete. He rushed for 680 yards and six touchdowns on 198 attempts, and added eight receptions for 52 yards and a score.

Stewart, who turns 31 later this month, visited the Seattle Seahawks last Thursday and the Detroit Lions on Monday. Under Shula's watch, Stewart tallied 3,482 yards over five seasons, including 989 yards, second highest in his career, in 2015, when the Panthers went 15-1 en route to an NFC Championship.

Stewart was the 13th overall selection in the 2008 National Football League draft after leaving the University of OR following his junior season.
