"Source: Running back Jonathan Stewart has been cut by the Carolina Panthers", Rodrique tweets. "He brought an element of toughness as a runner that set the tempo for our team", head coach Ron Rivera said in a statement.
Stewart, who will turn 31 on March 21, was coming off one of his worst seasons statistically behind an offensive line Hurney regarded as one of the top five in the league. Releasing him creates $3.7 million in salary cap room for the Panthers.
Stewart, the Panthers' all-time leading rusher, was selected in the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft and played every snap of his 10-year career with the team. Although he rushed for over 1,000 yards just once in his career (during his second season in 2009), he still became the franchise's all-time leading rusher with 7,318 yards as he passed former teammate DeAngelo Williams in Week 4 of last season against the New England Patriots. It might not be long before he finds another team.
"We have a real formula for how we win".
The Panthers are approximately $30 million under the projected salary cap for 2018.

But age 30 is a statistical cliff for running-back production in the NFL. He made his only Pro Bowl in 2015 after rushing for 989 yards and six scores on 242 carries. His 3.4 yards per carry was easily the lowest in his entire career.
Plus, there are other veteran, accomplished backs available if the Seahawks want to add a veteran to their backfield.
"I wouldn't say you need a guy like Jonathan because you go back and look at what he did when he had LaDainian (Tomlinson) or when he had Frank Gore in San Francisco, he's had dynamic guys that are multi-faceted, that can run the ball inside, outside, catch the ball and pass protect, so that's what you're really looking for, that type of guy", Rivera said. The Seahawks are scouting many of them here at the combine.
Stewart has been a durable player for Carolina. It was not for pretty much the last decade.
