Panthers RB Stewart Says He Wants to Stay in Carolina

Running back Jonathan Stewart is entering the final year of his contract with the Panthers.

Both DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert have been signed by the Panthers in subsequent years to big long-term deals but Stewart wants to stay with the team.

The Panthers wanted to extend Stewart’s contract earlier this offseason, but were unable to strike a long-term deal, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

They’ve not given up hope of doing so.

“I definitely hope things work out,” Stewart said. “I want to be back. I think we have a lot of weapons on offense and we can be a dangerous team.”

    The Carolina backfield is going to be an interesting battle this year with Jonathan Stewart, Williams, Tolbert, and not to mention Cam.
