Jonathan Stewart expected to sign with Giants

Stewart played for the Panthers in 15 games and started in ten of them in 2017.

Stewart brings veteran leadership, familiarity with the Giants' offensive coordinator Mike Shula, and a hard-nose attitude.

The Oregon product has been a steady and consistent force throughout his career with seven seasons of more than 700 rushing yards and is a powerful runner who serves as a reliable option inside the red zone and when Carolina needs a critical short-yardage pickup.

He did have six rushing touchdowns, but his yards per carry average was the lowest of his career. He is Carolina's all-time leading rusher with 7,318 yards and second in rushing touchdowns with 51.

Vintage Stewart showed up that week as he rushed for 103 yards and three touchdowns.

The New York Giants missed out on their ideal ex-Carolina Panther in this week's free agent frenzy.

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.

Stewart's signing shouldn't take the Giants out of the running for Barkley or another rookie running back, but the decision is a puzzling one - and one that seems to signal that Gettleman believes the Giants can rebound from a disastrous 2017 season rather quickly. Rebuilding teams shouldn't be signing 30-year-old running backs. In 2011, he set Panthers records for catches (47) and receiving yards (413) in a season by a running back. He ended the year with just 90 rushing yards on 41 carries (2.2 yards per carry).
