Jonathan Stewart expected to sign with Giants

On Tuesday, the New York Giants brought over long-time Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart and signed him to a deal.

According to a report by Adam Schefter at ESPN, Stewart is expected to sign with Dave Gettleman's new team when free agency opens tomorrow. Add in the fact that Stewart is coming off a season in which he averaged 3.4 yards per carry with the Panthers and is clearly on the downslope of his career and, well, it certainly seems like Gettleman thinks his team isn't that far off from competing and that Stewart will help get them over the top. "He's a terrific addition for us at this time".

Giants backs Orleans Darkwa and Shane Vereen are both set to be unrestricted free agents. In his 10 seasons with Carolina, Stewart rushed for 7,318 yards and scored 58 total touchdowns.

Hawking's doctors gave him almost two years to live but he defied the medical history and survived for decades. A previous holder of the prestigious post was the 17th-century British scientist Isaac Newton.

Stewart rushed for a career-high 1,133 yards in 2009, when he teamed with DeAngelo Williams (1,117) to become the first set of teammates in National Football League history to each rush for more than 1,100 yards. In 2011, he set Panthers records for catches (47) and receiving yards (413) in a season by a running back. He has also played in seven postseason games with six starts.

Stewart joins a backfield that includes 2017 fourth round pick Wayne Gallman and 2016 fifth round pick Paul Perkins. But Stewart is an aging player who hasn't been productive in a few years. The last extension ran through 2018, but Stewart was released in late February. He finished the season with 680 rushing yards on 198 carries (3.4 #Yards Per Carry). Including a year ago though, Stewart averaged less than four yards per carry in three of the five seasons he was running with Shula as the offensive coordinator.
