Carolina also released veteran defensive lineman Charles Johnson and safety Kurt Coleman earlier this week.
Stewart, who will turn 31 next month and hasn't played a full 16 games since 2011, saw his role decrease last season due to the presence of rookie Christian McCaffrey. The Panthers will save over $5.2 million by cutting him.
He rushed for 680 yards and six touchdowns on 198 carries in 2017. His 3.4 yards per carry average was the lowest of his 10-year career, all of which have been with the Panthers.Back to the Carolina Panthers Newsfeed
