RB Jonathan Stewart expected to sign with Giants


Running back Jonathan Stewart is coming back to the National Football League for his 11th season, and he will reportedly play for the New York Giants after spending the first 10 years of his career with the Carolina Panthers.

Stewart will likely compete with Wayne Gallman and Paul Perkins for the Giants' starting job during training camp and the preseason.

Stewart, who turns 31 this month, previously spent his whole career with the Panthers, drafted with the 13th overall selection of the 2008 draft out of Oregon. "He is a quality runner with power and speed and brings a veteran, professional presence to our locker room".

A first-round pick out of OR in 2008, Stewart has made one Pro Bowl (2015) and has 7,318 rushing yards and 51 rushing touchdowns for his career.

He did have six rushing touchdowns, but his yards per carry average was the lowest of his career. In 2011, he set Panthers records for catches (47) and receiving yards (413) in a season by a running back.

Stewart has played in 131 regular-season games with 64 starts. His playoff totals include 101 carries for 474 yards and five touchdowns, plus nine catches for 49 yards. But Stewart is an aging player who hasn't been productive in a few years.

Stewart worked with Shula extensively when the latter was moved from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator prior to the 2013 season. He finished the season with 680 rushing yards on 198 carries (3.4 #Yards Per Carry). Unlike Stewart, he was a threat in the passing game with 34 receptions for 193 yards and a touchdown.
