By JONATHAN DICKSONThe Rams have signed free-agent running back Jonathan Stewart to a one-year contract, a source informed of the move told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Stewart will earn $1.25 million in incentives and incentives payouts.
The deal was negotiated in conjunction with the Rams’ medical staff, the source said.
The move was first reported by NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.
Stewarts release comes after the Rams placed WR Jared Cook on season-ending injured reserve on Oct. 3.
Cook is a five-year veteran who rushed for 2,945 yards and 21 touchdowns in 10 seasons with the Seahawks and Lions.
Stewart is the longest-tenured Rams running back and the second-oldest.
