Jonathan Stewart to join Dave Gettleman's 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.

Carolina selected Stewart with the No. 13 overall pick in 2008 out of OR, and he became the Panthers' all-time rushing leader with 7,318 rushing yards in his career. Stewart ran for a season-high 110 yards on 17 carries against Miami on November 13.

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

In his junior year at Oregon, Stewart rushed for 1,722 yards and nine touchdowns before he chose to jump to the NFL.

Reuniting with GM Dave Gettleman as well as offensive coordinator Mike Shula was part of the appeal for Jonathan Stewart

Now that he's reuniting with Gettleman in NY, he'll have a chance to add to those totals.

Stewart worked with Shula extensively when the latter was moved from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator prior to the 2013 season. The Giants ranked 26th in the league in rushing last season with pending free agent Orleans Darkwa leading the team with 756 yards on 171 carries. Gallman finished his rookie year of 2017 with 476 rushing yards on 111 carries (4.3 yards per carry) but no touchdowns. Stewart has 18 100-yard games, and that was the only one against the Giants.

Beginning the year as the starting running back, Perkins had a very disappointing 2017. In 2011, he set Panthers records for catches (47) and receiving yards (413) in a season by a running back. The Giants also own the No. 2 selection in the upcoming NFL Draft and have been rumored to be interested in Penn State running back and top prospect Saquon Barkley.
