Hope he never takes a snap on defense and only on special teams.
A Stupar-d move

He's good on ST, but keep him away from the defense.

Please remind me (I've blocked a lot of last season out)

Well the draft is still a month away.
He was a step  
pjcas18 : 3/20/2019 4:02 pm : link
or two late on every play he was involved with.

He only played 64 defensive snaps, but they were memorable.

Reminded me a little of Unga, but slightly less effective and slightly better size.

In his only start, against the Redskins in October, he missed three tackles, including a really bad one on Adrian Peterson's TD.

Because he was part of a special teams unit that was one of the best in the league?
Eric not sure about Stupar  
Chris684 : 3/20/2019 4:08 pm : link
but they probably don't sign both Fowler AND Latimer without the Beckham trade, so that explains that.

Keeping Pulley is the only one that really stood out to me as much of a question.
Doesnít mean he will make the final roster

+1

He was really bad on a bad defense..thats saying something
this deal is either...

.....stupid or super...............
I hope this one is for one year at veteran minimum...  
Big Blue Blogger : 3/20/2019 4:20 pm : link
...and qualifies for cap relief. If he makes the team, Stupar will be nicely paid because of seniority, but his cap hit should be that of a third-year player.
I didn't realize  
pjcas18 : 3/20/2019 4:23 pm : link
Stupar is 31 years old.

There has to be a UDFA with more upside.

Also didn't realize Hoss (Jeff Hostetler) is his uncle. I imagine that was discussed last season, but I guess I missed it.

That's the issue. I've been updating the salary section of the site on a daily basis and these older guys make quite a bit of change even on minimum contracts because of their seniority.
This guy kinda sucks

You could find an equal as an UDFA next month.
special teams

are important for returning kicks after the Defense allows yet another score.

I didn't expect a huge influx of talent, but so far I'm not really wowed with the bottom half of the roster. shake it up and hope somebody rises to the occasion. Keeping your own means more of the same.
Recluse has it right, he was part of the giants st that was one of the  
plato : 3/20/2019 4:32 pm : link
best, if not only in the league, in recent giants history. Makes me worry though about teams that hav their roster occupied by stíers and not defensive or offensive players.

coach could make a difference but we kept players who were st specialists only. canít win a lot of games that way.
I kept mis-reading the thread title,

I kept seeing it as the Giants signed Subpar.

That was it!
I remember the Washington game he fell down a lot

iirc, one of Adrian Peterson big gains was right past/over him. Good times...
Giants re-sign Stupar  
Gman11 : 3/20/2019 5:12 pm : link
And the question is Why?
This is one re-signing that I will criticize.  
Red Dog : 3/20/2019 5:20 pm : link
He's absolutely terrible on defense, and very replaceable on special teams. Takes way too many penalties, doesn't tackle well at times, and doesn't contribute much positive in my view.
Eric: So far, I think Brittan Golden is the only 2019 qualifying deal.

As fans, weíll always hope for cap relief. Realistically, though, there isnít much motivation for a vested vet to sign a qualifying deal in March. With the guaranteed money capped at $90K, any decent veteran player is likely to wait and see if the market improves. There isnít much downside to waiting: the minimum salary is locked in by the CBA, and thereís a lot of room on 90-man rosters as players get nicked or flame out during the spring and summer.

Stupar is, as Stupar does...?
Someday we will have good young special teamers  
Jimmy Googs : 3/20/2019 7:17 pm : link
that turn into decent starters or at least good backup positional players.

Does that exist in current salary cap world?
The mediocre veteran you do know...  
morrison40 : 3/20/2019 7:23 pm : link
Is often a cheaper lower risk option
I just have always thought we sucked at specials and LB  
Jimmy Googs : 3/20/2019 7:35 pm : link
for example because of we are not drafting or pulling in a few UDFAs each year that are really athletic guys who just lack experience as starters. Let them earn their bones on specials and then start developing and giving them snaps on various defensive packages. Some may cap out as just good special teamers/backups and some will turn into good athletic starters.

Obviously easier said than done but thatís my opinion...
Stupar  
Archer : 3/20/2019 7:39 pm : link
Stupar was injured for most of the year
He hurt his knee and was never 100%

He played really well for New Orleans prior to the injury
Letís see what he can do when healthy

George from PA : 3/20/2019 8:50 pm : link
It is a good idea to have players with knowledge.....during practice.

I suspect this does not mean they will make team
His uncle is Jeff Hostetler  
kinard : 3/20/2019 9:10 pm : link
... Stupar played the legacy card
This is another head scratcher move..  
prdave73 : 3/20/2019 9:20 pm : link
This player is not even worth depth. He was awful, along with Martin. They need to stop holding on to under performing players.
.  
arcarsenal : 3/20/2019 9:39 pm : link
I'm not sure if the poster above is correct or not, but if he really was injured most of the year and performed a bit better before this past year, then it makes a little more sense.

It does look like he played a fair amount in New Orleans a couple seasons ago.
Dare I say,  
Doomster : 3/20/2019 10:12 pm : link
he was worse than Riley on defense?

That play against against Peterson where he had him dead to rights and missed the tackle was just classic.....

DG is obviously dumpster diving again....
Did I mention he  
Doomster : 3/20/2019 10:15 pm : link
will be 31? We are rebuilding right?
They need camp bodies  
section125 : 3/20/2019 11:48 pm : link
and ST players?

He had better not ever see the field on downs 1, 2, or 3. Just awful play at LB.
Nobody is mentioning that the ST improved a lot last season  
OdellBeckhamJr : 3/21/2019 12:03 am : link
and Stupar and Hamilton were apart of that.
Relax  
SLIM_ : 3/21/2019 6:50 am : link
We have a lot of draft picks. A guy like Stupar in addition to contributing on special teams would be savvy enough to know the defense allowing younger ones to get the reps in training camp.

Ideally he doesn't play on defense.

They have what, 12 picks this year? So signing UDFAs won't be as much of a priority.
Ironically..

Tankage, whether they'll admit it or not. Go with men you feel are good for the season at hand.
And no, they're not really tanking  
JonC : 3/21/2019 11:21 am : link
They're stuck in a place where they're not allowing themselves to really rip it all apart, and the reality that this season is really about eating dead cap money and trying to load up on prospects, while fielding the best team they can ... which isn't likely to be a good one.

It's a process.
