Panthers Still Have No Intention Of Trading RB Jonathan Stewart


Carolina Panthers GM Marty Hurney reiterated that they have no plans to trade RB Jonathan Stewart at any point in the season.

He’s a very talented player,” Hurney said during a radio interview on Tuesday, via¬†CBS Charlotte. “He fits our Panther profile perfectly, and he’s somebody that we would like to extend for a lot of years.”

Stewart is entering the final year of his rookie contract and the fact that the Panthers have signed¬†DeAngelo Williams to a long-term deal and also added Mike Tolbert during free agency, makes it seem like they could at least consider the idea. One interesting note to pass along; Williams’ deal has no guaranteed money following the 2012 season, so the Panthers could end up re-signing Stewart and either asking Williams to take a pay cut or release him outright.

We have Stewart listed as the #21 best available free agent in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
