  • Jonathan Stewart: Retires from football

    Stewart (foot) is retiring from the NFL.

    Stewart is signing a one-day contract to retire with the Panthers after a lost 2018 campaign in New York. The 2008 first-round pick played 10 of his 11 pro seasons for Carolina, peaking at 1,133 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns in 2009. Stewart retires as the franchise leader in carries (1,699), rushing yards (7,318) and rushing touchdowns (51), finishing slightly ahead of longtime backfield mate DeAngelo Williams in each category.

  • Jonathan Stewart: Hitting open market

    The Giants let Wednesday's deadline pass without picking up the second-year option on Stewart's (foot) contract, Jordan Raanan of reports.

    As expected, Stewart hits the open market six weeks before his 32nd birthday. He's believed to have made a full recovery from the foot injury that landed him on injured reserve in 2018, but he'll have a hard time getting offers for much more than the veteran's minimum. It won't come as any surprise if Stewart decides to retire.

  • Giants' Jonathan Stewart: Won't have option picked up

    Stewart (foot) will become a free agent when the Giants decline to exercise the option for the second season of his two-year contract, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

    It's a foregone conclusion the Giants won't exercise the option before the Feb. 4 deadline, instead moving forward with Saquon Barkley and Wayne Gallman in the backfield. The 31-year-old Stewart seems to have recovered from the foot injury that landed him on injured reserve in late September, but the Giants didn't see any reason to bring him back to the active roster. He likely will need to battle for a depth job if he intends to continue his career.

  • Giants' Jonathan Stewart: Won't return this season

    Stewart (foot) isn't practicing Wednesday and will revert to injured reserve, ending his season, Ryan Dunleavy of reports.

    Back on Nov. 15, the Giants designated Stewart as one of two players eligible to return from IR this season, giving the team 21 days to evaluate him for reinstatement to the roster. Though Stewart is back to full strength after being shut down with the foot injury earlier this season, the Giants simply didn't have a need for him with Wayne Gallman proving to be an effective complement to three-down workhorse Saquon Barkley while also offering more value than Stewart on special teams. Stewart is under contract with the Giants through the 2019 season, though it doesn't appear especially likely that the club will retain the 31-year-old.
