The New York Giants decided not to activate veteran running back Jonathan Stewart prior to the deadline to do so on Thursday.
Stewart, who landed on the IR due to a foot injury back in September, will now be unavailable for the rest of the season, per league rules regarding the injured reserve list.
While Stewart, 32, was brought in via a two-year deal, it is unlikely that the Giants bring him back in 2019.
Giants Release Connor Barwin
Barwin was valued for his veteran leadership and locker room presence, but managed only one sack during the 2018 season, despite appearing in 15 games and starting 3 of those contests.
Barwin, 32, will now his the free agent market.
Giants Not Bringing Back Connor Barwin
Barwin was due for a $250,000 roster bonus on March 7th, but he will be released prior to that kicking in.
Additionally, Barwin was set to carry a $1.865 million cap number in 2019, and releasing him will save the Giants $1.5 million and leave them with $365,000 in dead money.
Giants Placing Landon Collins on IR
The Giants are leaving the door open for Collins to return this season, but with the Giants struggling and Collins scheduled to hit free agency in March, it doesn’t seem to make much sense for Collins to rush his way back to the field in 2018.
Collins has collected 67 tackles, four passes defensed, and a forced fumble for the Giants this season.
