When Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams get together, the tailbacks seldom discuss football.
So Stewart has not pressed his Panthers' running mate about his pending free agency.
But Stewart made his views clear Monday when asked whether he wants Williams to remain in Charlotte.
"Oh, yeah," Stewart said. "So once they get this deal done I'm pretty sure the organization would like to keep the duo going. I mean, if it's not broke, why fix it?"
Stewart was part of an NFL panel Monday at Bobcats President Fred Whitfield's Achievements Unlimited basketball school. He joined Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, New York Giants receiver and Charlotte native Hakeem Nicks and Fox Sports' NFL analyst Solomon Wilcots at Ardrey Kell High for a discussion on their educational and athletic experiences and most inspiring coaches and teachers.
Stewart said he's glad to hear reports that labor talks have progressed and a collective-bargaining agreement could be in place by the end of the week.
"We've been working out, working out, working out. It's time to put it to use," Stewart said. "It is that time of year where training camp starts. So I'm pretty excited to see if things are going to add up the way they're supposed to."
Stewart spent the offseason working out in Miami, as well as in Charlotte and in his hometown in Washington. He attended the Panthers players offseason training activities, where he got his first look at the offense of coordinator Rob Chudzinski.
"We were able to get into the playbooks a little bit and mesh with some of the guys - just get some type of chemistry built with the new guys that are on the team," Stewart said. "It was pretty productive."
