Jonathan Stewart wants to stay with the Panthers

Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart would love to work out a long-term deal in order to stay in Charlotte, instead of hitting the free agent market after this coming season.

“I definitely hope things work out,” Stewart said. “I want to be back. I think we have a lot of weapons on offense and we can be a dangerous team.”

The Panthers tried to get an extension done earlier in the offseason, but nothing was able to get hammered out.  With the addition of Mike Tolbert, the Panthers have some insurance in case Stewart signs elsewhere in 2013.

    The Carolina Panthers backfield has to be one of the more formidable backfields in the NFL with Jonathan Stewart, Williams, Tolbert and Cam Newton. Even if one goes down with injury, any of the others are more than capable of carrying the load.
