Giants Re-Signing WR Bennie Fowler, Release LB Nate Stupar


According to Pat Leonard, the Giants are re-signing WR Bennie Fowler to a contract after recently releasing him.

Per Ralph Vacchiano, the Giants will release LB Nate Stupar to make room for Fowler on the roster. 

Fowler, 28, wound up signing on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan State in May of 2014. He was unable to make the 53-man roster during his rookie season, but later wound up on their practice squad and returned on a future/reserve contract.

The Broncos brought Fowler back on one-year exclusive rights deals the next two years, but declined to tender him a contract as a restricted free agent in 2018. He had brief stints with the Bears and Patriots before signing on with the Giants.

New York brought Fowler back this offseason before releasing him a few weeks ago. 

In 2019, Fowler has appeared in four games for the Giants and caught 12 passes for 99 yards receiving and no touchdowns. He has also rushed for 20 yards.
