New York Giants expected to sign RB Jonathan Stewart

New York Giants expected to sign RB Jonathan Stewart

Stewart will reunite with former Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman, who was recently hired to the same position with the Giants.

On Tuesday, a bit more clarity arrived when Gettleman chose to sign 30-year-old running back Jonathan Stewart, who will turn 31 later this month.

McWhorter also allegedly admitted the men threw a PVC pipe bomb through the window of the clinic, but the device failed to go off. The FBI is not commenting on any possible local ties to Minnesota, but leaders at Dar-Al Farooq hope a larger message remains.

On Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN first reported the expected signing, which can't become official until free agency opens Wednesday. Stewart, who turns 31 on March 21, was selected in the first round (13th overall) by the #Carolina Panthers in 2008 where he spent his first 10 seasons. "He's a terrific addition for us at this time". His 51 rushing touchdowns rank second in team history to quarterback Cam Newton's 54, and his 58 total scores are second to wide receiver Steve Smith's 75. Shane Vereen is also a free agent, but very few believe that the Giants will consider bringing him back. He departs Carolina as it's all-time leading rusher, tallying 7,318 yards over 10 seasons. He and DeAngelo Williams each broke the 1,000-yard rushing barrier in 2009, and the Panthers haven't done it since - the longest active drought by a team in the National Football League, according to ESPN Stats & Information. He has also played in seven postseason games with six starts.

Stewart will likely compete with Wayne Gallman and Paul Perkins for the Giants' starting job during training camp and the preseason. The last extension ran through 2018, but Stewart was released in late February. The Panthers also used the No. 8 overall draft selection previous year on running back Christian McCaffrey.
