The New York Giants have agreed to a contract with veteran running back Jonathan Stewart Authentic Todd Gurley Jersey , who was released by the Carolina Panthers after 10 seasons.
The Giants announced the deal on Tuesday night. Terms were not disclosed.
The 30-year-old Stewart is Carolina’s all-time leading rusher with 7,318 yards, and his 51 rushing touchdowns rank second in team history.
He immediately becomes the most accomplished running back on New York’s roster. Orleans Darkwa Steve Young Jersey , who led the Giants in rushing last season, is a free agent. Wayne Gallman and Paul Perkins are also on the roster.
”I am very pleased that we were able to make Jonathan a New York Football Giant,” general manager Dave Gettleman Troy Aikman Jersey , who previously had the same job with Carolina, said in a statement. ”He is a quality runner with power and speed and brings a veteran, professional presence to our locker room. He’s a terrific addition for us at this time.”
Stewart was the 13th overall selection in the 2008 draft. His best season was in 2009 Womens Brayden Point Jersey , when he rushed for 1,133 yards and 10 touchdowns.
The NFL was invited to offer testimony before Congress during a hearing on sports betting that was scheduled for next Tuesday, but the hearing will not be taking place as planned.
David Purdum of ESPN.com reports that the House Judiciary Committee has postponed the hearing titled “Post-PASPA: An Examination of Sports Betting in America.” PASPA stands for the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act Corey Perry Jersey , which was struck down by the Supreme Court in a May ruling that made it possible for states previously barred from legalized sports betting to legalize it.
In a statement released after that ruling, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said that the league would like Congress “to enact uniform standards” for states rather than have up to 50 different standards in the 50 different states.
Sports books have opened in New Jersey and Delaware since the Supreme Court ruling with other states expected to make similar moves in the near future.
