Darin Gantt of ProFootballTalk.com indciated on PFT Live that the Carolina Panthers never really considered trading running back Jonathan Stewart, even though they brought in Mike Tolbert via free agency.

I’m not sure if the Panthers will be able to keep Stewart after this coming season, since he’ll be a free agent next offseason.  But with him, Tolbert and DeAngelo Williams; the Panthers are certainly deep at the running back position and have some insurance in case he does leave next year.
