includes some details i haven't seen mentioned yet...

Ben Dogra, Stewart's agent, said the deal is worth $36.5 million and could reach $42.5 million, with $22.5 million in guaranteed money....

But Dogra said talks about an extenion for Stewart began after last season. They were finalized about 90 minutes before Saturday's exhibition opener against Houston.

“Talks have been going on for quite a while. We all thought it was best to keep it under the radar,” Dogra said. “Jonathan loves being a Carolina Panther and wanted to explore the possibility he could stay there the rest of his career.”

...Dogra said the contract is structured as a four-year deal with a club option for a fifth year. Stewart will receive a $9 million signing bonus, and a $9 million option bonus the Panthers must exercise in the spring of 2014, Dogra said.

Dogra said the deal was designed to lessen the impact on the team's salary cap.

Since 2008, @Jonathanstewar1 1st year in the @nfl, the #Panthershave produced 9,189 rushing yards, most in the NFL.

What's our w/l record in that timespan?

Quick....who are the running backs for the patriots?

We just watched a team with modest running backs run all over us.

In today's NFL, a running back is a commodity and it makes no sense to spend guaranteed money on running backs.

You spend money on defensive linemen who can rush the passer. Like the Giants.

Marty Hurney was just on the radio saying it was important to keep key players. What about Julius Peppers?

Quick...the Pats have Brady. Our version just arrived last year and was a rookie.

Houston has modest running backs? What league do you watch?

Understand your point re: RB's being a commodity. And they may be for us once Cam and the passing game is fully developed.

So what should we have done? Sign Mario Williams? And what if he turns out to be a bad fit in our system? If we are going to spend something on the d-line it needs to be draft picks.

Hurney tried to keep Peppers. Julius didn't want to be here.

A year and a half of bitching about William's contract and how we wouldn't be able to sign Stewart.

Then bitching about how we should trade Stewart before we lose him for nothing.

Now bitching that we paid too much to sign him and don't need a running game in a passing league.

Some folks are going to bitch about anything and everything.

I guess I ought to be happy I don't have to live with them and listen to them bitch about everything. Putting up with them here is plenty bad as it is,
