New York Giants Sign Former Panthers Running Back

  • Jonathan Stewart is out to prove he has plenty left in the tank

The New York Giants agreed to terms with running back Jonathan Stewart, formerly of the Carolina Panthers, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN. He departs Carolina as it's all-time leading rusher, tallying 7,318 yards over 10 seasons.

After spending his entire career with the Carolina Panthers, Stewart will now look for a fresh start in New Jersey and be part of a Giants offense under new head coach Pat Shurmur.

Stewart will re-join forces with new Giants offensive coordinator Mike Shula. Stewart ran for a season-high 110 yards on 17 carries against Miami on November 13. He did score six rushing touchdowns, but three of them came in a single game, against the Vikings in December.

Reuniting with GM Dave Gettleman as well as offensive coordinator Mike Shula was part of the appeal for Jonathan Stewart

NY owns the second pick in the upcoming draft, and there is belief that the Giants are seriously considering picking former Penn State running back Saquon Barkley with the pick, should the Browns pass on him with the top selection. Wayne Gallman and Paul Perkins are also on the roster.

The Giants were 26th in rushing yards and tied for 28th in rushing touchdowns in 2017, so Stewart fills a need at running back to some extent. Four weeks later, he rushed for 103 yards, including a season-long 60-yard touchdown, in a victory against eventual NFC finalist Minnesota. Rebuilding teams shouldn't be signing 30-year-old running backs. He also caught eight passes for 46 yards.

Despite some struggles last season, Stewart is still one of the best offensive players in Panthers history after consistently serving as the top running back option for the better part of a decade.
