Giants gave Jonathan Stewart a two-year, $6.9 million deal

On the one hand, the Giants are coming off a three-win season with a 37-year-old quarterback, which seems to signal a full-on rebuild is coming soon.

Stewart, who will turn 31 on March 21, will reunite with former Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Mike Shula and general manager Dave Gettleman in NY.

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, 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 is a quality runner with power and speed and brings a veteran, professional presence to our locker room". He is Carolina's all-time leading rusher with 7,318 yards and second in rushing touchdowns with 51. He has also played in seven postseason games with six starts.


His yards per carry ranked 32nd among the 34 running backs who had at least 150 carries last season, ahead of only Adrian Peterson and Ameer Abdullah, according to ESPN Stats & Information. But Stewart is an aging player who hasn't been productive in a few years.

Stewart joins a backfield that includes 2017 fourth round pick Wayne Gallman and 2016 fifth round pick Paul Perkins. The running back scored Carolina's only touchdown in their 24-10 loss to Denver, a game that prevented Stewart from appearing in his first Pro Bowl. He finished the season with 680 rushing yards on 198 carries (3.4 #Yards Per Carry).
