BREAKING: Panthers Cut RB Jonathan Stewart

The Carolina Panthers have released veteran running back Jonathan Stewart, according to Jourdan Rodrigue of the Charlotte Observer.

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.
