Before the 2012 season, he got a five-year, $37.8 million contract extension with $23 million guaranteed, then got a one-year, $8 million extension before the 2017 season.

In Charlotte, Stewart worked with Giants general manager Dave Gettleman and offensive coordinator Mike Shula.

Two weeks after he was cut by the Carolina Panthers, it appears running back Jonathan Stewart has found a new home.

Jonathan Stewart is expected to sign with the Giants, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Stewart spent he first 10 years of his National Football League career in a Carolina uniform. His usage may take a dip being that he's 30 years-old, but we can assume he will fill the role of Orleans Darkwa who will likely be walking in free agency. "He is a quality runner with power and speed and brings a veteran, professional presence to our locker room". He posted a total of 7,318 rushing yards and 51 touchdowns in his time with the Panthers. His best season was in 2009, when he rushed for 1,133 yards and 10 touchdowns. But Stewart is an aging player who hasn't been productive in a few years. Wayne Gallman and Paul Perkins are also on the roster.

After he was released by the Panthers on February 28, Stewart initially drew interest from the Seahawks and Lions, but the Giants will end up with his services in 2018. 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. Last season was arguably the worst of his career, as he averaged a career-worst 3.4 yards per rush and collected only 680 yards on the ground.
