Roster update: The Giants have signed WR Bennie Fowler and terminated the contract of LB Nate Stupar.
BBI rejoices

in the 51-53rd roster spots..

Unless SS is going to be out a while not sure why we go get Fowler. Even if SS is going to be out awhile Fowler to me is a MEH guy. I would rather see more of Core and if he has anything more than solid ST skills to work with.
Talk about addition by subtraction

What would happen to BBI

Yeah, finally they

Fowler knows the system and worked with Jones all through camp. It makes sense to bring him back, even if he has a low upside.

And I have a sneaking suspicion that unless the Giants find themselves in a chance to make the playoff in the final 4 games, they shut Shepard down for the year.
Hes a good downfield blocker

jvm52106 : 10/14/2019 9:44 am : link
shut down. That second concussion happened on a play where he really didn't get crunched and more rolled over on, causing his helmet to turn sideways some. That to me screams not fully recovered from the first concussion (which these things are really hard to nail down). No need to risk career and as far as the team goes, Golden Tate basically is the same guy.

Fowler takes the chance and refines his route running. When he was here last he wasn't really attacking the ball and seemed to be rounding his cuts out on his routes.

Not completely rejoicing....we have two guys on PS I like better than Bennie and the Jets. Reggie White and this other kid, forgot his name.

Great job by Gettleman!

Bringing back Stupar. Just great. He made a terrific contribution to the Patriots.
White,  
AcidTest : 10/14/2019 10:12 am : link
Sills, and Scott are for camp next year. They would only be promoted from the PS if we were decimated at WR.

I hope they give White Jr. a shot soon also. He was very impressive in the preseason and training camp. He might have a future as a sub WR in the NFL. We already know that Fowler is a fringe player. I just hope we don't see any throws to Fowler moving forward.

The team was decimated losing their top 3 mlbs to injury the last few weeks. Do you think the Giants were happy Stupar had to get game time?


Some of you come off as missing brain cells with comments like this.
Would've rather brought back  
Metnut : 10/14/2019 10:16 am : link
TJ Jones. He at least showed some play making ability.
This is the obvious move  
DavidinBMNY : 10/14/2019 10:17 am : link
And it's a small silver lining they didn't IR Sheppard. I can't see Sheppard playing for at least a month, and he really shouldn't.

My daughter's HS football friend had a concussion a few weeks back and it's still effecting him. He gets tired early, stimulus effect him a lot. And that's just 1 concussion and it's been a few weeks.

If Sheppard is back before the bye I would be really, really surprised.

Damn you mistic! I just walked to the living room and my hamster is lying dead on his wheel....

This my be my last post ever, if I can't not figure out this division by zero thing you introduced into my head....

Now how exactly do you figure I can catch and pump back all this magic steam that seeped out of my head back in?????
Stupar  
Bob in Vt : 10/14/2019 10:22 am : link
Was directly responsible for the blocked punt in the last game.

He totally failed to block his man and allowed himself to be pushed all the back into the punter's area.

If he is on the team primarily for his special team's ability - we can do better.
Stupar was on the team because  
giants#1 : 10/14/2019 10:26 am : link
Ogletree, Davis, and Connelly were all injured. They clearly felt Mayo was a better special teams player than Stupar, but injuries forced their hand. With Ogletree back and Davis hopefully close, its an easy choice to cut him.
I would also prefer to see Reggie White over Fowler. But I'm glad  
Ira : 10/14/2019 10:27 am : link
Stupar is gone.
'Was directly responsible for the blocked punt in the last game.'  
Torrag : 10/14/2019 10:59 am : link
We marked this play during the game at our house. It was embarrassing. Got pushed back about 7 yards by a RB like he wasn't even there. He's a fucking linebacker...or purports to be. Hopefully we never have to see him in our colors again. A nearly useless player.

David Sills


I guess coach has seen enough of young guys not answering the call (Hilliman) so I guess he is going back to a guy at least he knows what he brings (Bennie) instead of promoting one of the PS guys.

really? you do realize the amount of injuries the Giants have had at the linebacker position?

do your hw
I would rather see Alonzo Russell get a shot  
Rudy5757 : 10/14/2019 12:13 pm : link
That guy was giving maximum effort and really stood out watching the game. I was very disappointed he was cut and think he can be a good player for us and contribute on specials.
So much for Stupars great ST play  
Vanzetti : 10/14/2019 12:47 pm : link
Got blocked back into the punter

And never made a tackle that I recall
Solid moves  
Rjanyg : 10/14/2019 1:07 pm : link
Fowler is a vet that Jones knows. Stupar has been misspelling his name ( stupid ).

In a very bad deck. Stupar cut is like killing one ant in the kitchen. There are more than one.
I know we aren't likely to see it,  
Thunderstruck27 : 10/14/2019 2:53 pm : link
but in the preseason Alonzo Russell looked to always be on the same page as DJ. Would like to know if that chemistry could carry over into a real game.

Chris L. : 10/14/2019 3:52 pm : link
The moves our coach and GM have made at the back end of the roster are head scratching and concerning. I too was a big proponent for Alonzo Russell and would like to see him get a shot. At the very least he looks like he would help out much more on specials than the fifth and sixth receiver positions which have already seen circulation.
Concussed Sheppard?  
Coach Red Beaulieu : 10/14/2019 4:56 pm : link
Let's keep a roster spot warm and toasty for Tanney.
