Stewart's signing shouldn't take the Giants out of the running for Barkley or another rookie running back, but the decision is a puzzling one - and one that seems to signal that Gettleman believes the Giants can rebound from a disastrous 2017 season rather quickly.
The 30-year-old Stewart is Carolina's all-time leading rusher with 7,318 yards, and his 51 rushing touchdowns rank second in team history.
Stewart will be reunited with general manager Dave Gettleman and offensive coordinator Mike Shula as a New York Giant.Читайте также: 3 arrested on gun charges suspected in Minnesota mosque bombing
However, he was inconsistent at best in 2017, and Scott Fowler of the Charlotte Observer even called for his benching in November after a particularly rough stretch when he failed to run for 50 yards in seven of eight games and even tallied minus-four rushing yards against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Giants were smart to pursue a player of Norwell's caliber and age (26), because he'd help them immediately and also be there to help once their rebuild is complete. He also finished with 1,295 receiving yards and 58 total touchdowns during his tenure.
Stewart, who turns 31 later this month, visited the Seattle Seahawks last Thursday and the Detroit Lions on Monday. Unlike Stewart, he was a threat in the passing game with 34 receptions for 193 yards and a touchdown.
Stewart was the 13th overall selection in the 2008 draft. He ended the year with just 90 rushing yards on 41 carries (2.2 yards per carry).При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
