The signing shouldn’t sway your opinion on the potential for the Giants to snag Penn State running back Saquon Barkley with the No. 2 overall pick. Stewart brings veteran leadership, familiarity with the Giants’ offensive coordinator Mike Shula, and a hard-nose attitude.
Stewart played in 15-games last season, rushing for 680-yards and six scores. His usage may take a dip being that he’s 30 years-old, but we can assume he will fill the role of Orleans Darkwa who will likely be walking in free agency.
