Jonathan Stewart: Carolina Panthers release veteran running back

Panthers Cut Team's All-Time Rusher Jonathan Stewart

Panthers release veteran RB Jonathan Stewart

Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart (28) is tackled by New Orleans Saints outside linebacker Craig Robertson (52) and other defenders during the second quarter in the NFC Wild Card playoff game at Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

On Wednesday, the Carolina Panthers made the tough decision to part ways with their former veteran running back after 10 seasons, but when considering that Stewart will be 31 by the start of next season, the move really isn't all that surprising since it's going to clear up a little cap space.

North Korea supplied chemical weapons components to Syria
Unfortunately, as reported by various newspapers, chemical weapons have allegedly been used to attack the rebel area as well. However, Syrian president Bashar al-Assad has routinely rebuffed the reports of chemical weapons usage in the country.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera was quoted as saying: 'Jonathan played the game the way you want. Stewart, who leaves the Panthers as the franchise's all-time rushing leader, had one year remaining on his contract after reaching an extension with the club last spring. The Panthers now have close to $30 million in cap space.

The seasoned tailback is the third veteran cut by the Panthers this week, joining defensive end Charles Johnson and safety Kurt Coleman.

Jonathan Stewart was selected in the NFL Draft in 2008. A 2015 Pro Bowler, Stewart has 1,699 career rushing attempts for 7,318 yards and 51 touchdowns. It might not be long before he finds another team. Without Russell Wilson's scrambling and team-leading rushing yards, the league's 25th-ranked run offense last season would have been last, by far.

But age 30 is a statistical cliff for running-back production in the NFL. Stewart averaged a career-low 3.4 yards per carry (680 yards on 198 carries), and his total yards were his fewest since 2013, when he was limited by injuries.
