The Panthers have committed long-term to running back Jonathan Stewart. They signed the back to a new five-year, $36.5 million contract extension on Saturday.
Stewart is still likely to split carries with DeAngelo Williams in 2012 but after the season, it looks like he'll have the starting halfback position all to himself. Stewart is a dual threat as a rusher and a receiver and we'd be surprised if he doesn't reach 1,000 yards from scrimmage again this year.
