After releasing safety Kurt Coleman and defensive end Charles Johnson earlier in the week, they've now cut veteran running back Jonathan Stewart, the team announced on their official website.

Carolina general manager Marty Hurney drafted Stewart 10 years ago, then gave Stewart his first contract extension in 2011.

According to ESPN, Stewart ranked 32 of the 34 Running Backs in the League.

Stewart also struggled to stay healthy and has not played in all 16 games in a season since 2011. Rookie running back Christian McCaffrey split carries with Stewart, tallying 850 receiving yards and 3.7 yards per carry. "He brought an element of toughness as a runner that set the tempo for our team".

Carolina hasn't had one since 2009, when both Williams and Stewart broke 1,000 yards.

The Panthers saved $3.7 million against their 2018 salary cap by cutting Stewart.

We ran a couple straight downhill plays with Jonathan and you could see everybody kind of pick up after that point.

"He is a great pro, and I appreciate who he is as a young man and thank him for the contribution he made". His 58 career touchdowns are second in the team's history.

In 2017, Stewart finished with 680 yards rushing.

As Sean McVay and the Long Angeles Rams prepare for this weekend's NFL Combine, the team has plenty of other tasks to consider over the next few weeks since the beginning of free agency is right around the corner.

Plus, at this stage in his career, there's a good chance Stewart will hope to be joining a team with a legitimate shot at competing for the Super Bowl, which describes Los Angeles perfectly.

The Panthers are approximately $30 million under the projected salary cap for 2018.
