Stupar was released by the Giants on Friday.
Stupar appeared in all 16 games for the Giants last season, logging 14 total tackles. The seven-year-pro dealt has played for five teams in his career so far and now must try to find another opportunity elsewhere.
Stupar (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
Stupar took a step back last season and worked mainly in a special-teams role, but the team may have more opportunities for him now that BJ Goodson is in Green Bay. Those chances will be limited, however, as Tae Davis and Alec Ogletree are pegged as the starters.
Stupar suffered a concussion in Thursday's preseason versus the Patriots, Ryan Dunleavy of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Stupar had four tackles (two solo) and played 36 defensive snaps before leaving the game. The 31-year-old re-signed with the Giants in March after being a significant special-teams contributor in 2018, but he'll now be sidelined until he clears the concussion protocol.
Stupar re-signed with the Giants on Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Stupar tied for second on the Giants with eight special-teams tackles in 2018. His return should help New York have another strong season covering punts and kickoffs.
Stupar is warming up with the starting defense Sunday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
Stupar appears in line to draw the start at inside linebacker with Alec Ogletree (hamstring) inactive. Stupar hasn't seen more than 20 defensive snaps in a game this season, but he could be in line for a significant workload against the Redskins.
Stupar agreed a to a contract with the Giants on Tuesday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Stupar was released by the Saints Tuesday, but it did not take long for the Giants to scoop him up. The special teams' stud tore his ACL last season, but ultimately fought his way back to earn a spot on the Saints' 53-man roster. While that was ultimately short-lived, he made enough of an impression to earn another shot with the Giants. He will presumably provide depth at linebacker, while focusing primarily on special teams.
Stupar is a full participant at the Saints' OTAs, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Stupar tore his ACL last October, ending his season prematurely. Now healthy and able to practice fully, he'll look to solidify his role on the defense and be a significant contributor behind starting linebackers Craig Robertson, Demario Davis, and A.J. Klein.
Stupar (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
Stupar tore his ACL in Sunday's win over the Lions and his season officially is over. The linebacker played exclusively on special teams in his four games with the Saints, recording one tackle in four games.
Stupar suffered a season-ending knee injury in Sunday's victory over the Lions, Herbie Teope of The Times-Picayune reports.
While Stupar simply provided depth on defense, the Saints will miss his special teams presence. The 29-year-old will now look to recover in time for the 2018 season.
Stupar (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Stupar was a limited participant in practice throughout the week, but he'll ultimately be able to suit up and play through the hamstring issue. Starting outside linebacker Stephone Anthony (ankle) has been ruled out, so Stupar could be in line for additional snaps if Hau'oli Kikaha were to suffer an injury of his own as well.
Stupar (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Nick Underhill of the New Orleans Advocate reports.
Stupar practicing on a limited basis this week is still an improvement after not practicing last week, but his status for Sunday remains unclear. The 29-year-old is likely nothing more than a depth linebacker for the Saints at this point.
Stupar (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Stupar sat out the season opener against the Vikings after failing to practice last week, so his activity Wednesday is a step in the right direction. The 29-year-old will likely function as a depth linebacker for the Saints if he suits up in the Week 2 matchup with the Patriots.
Stupar (hamstring) was ruled out for Monday night's game against the Vikings, Herbie Teope of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Stupar did not participate in practice throughout the week, so this isn't exactly a surprise. A.J. Klein remains ahead of him on the depth chart, so Stupar was likely in line for a more limited role, regardless.
Stupar (undisclosed) is not expected to play Thursday's preseason game against the Ravens, Herbie Teope of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Stupar finished last season with a career-high 59 tackles, one sack and an interception. He's still behind A.J. Klein on the depth chart so it makes sense that the Saints are exercising caution in the final preseason game.
Stupar made seven tackles (all solo) and forced a fumble that he would also recover in Sunday's win against the 49ers.
A week after making a diving interception, Stupar again made the most of his opportunities. With James Laurinaitis (quadriceps) being placed in Injured Reserve and Dannell Ellerbe (quadriceps) suffering a setback in his injury recovery, Stupar should continue to see significant playing time and he has quietly averaged seven tackles per games over the Saints' last five contests. He's worth a look in many IDP leagues.
Stupar has signed with the Saints.
Stupar signed a three-year deal with the Saints after spending the past two seasons in Atlanta. Last year with the Falcons was the best campaign of Stupar's career, as he totaled 40 tackles and two passes defensed, and played a career high 24.5 percent of defensive snaps and 77.7 percent of special teams snaps. With the Saints he'll likely be a backup, behind James Laurinaitis and Stephone Anthony, and not relevant in any format.
The Falcons signed linebacker Nate Stupar, a special teams standout, to a one-year extension for the minimum, $585,000, reports ESPN.com. Stupar ranked second on the team with nine special teams tackles, seven solo, while appearing in 15 games last season.
The Falcons listed seven players on their final injury report for Week 7 at Baltimore, and only wide receiver Harry Douglas was ruled out for the contest. Defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (knee), guard Justin Blalock (back), wide receiver Devin Hester (hamstring), wide receiver Julio Jones (ankle), linebacker Prince Shembo (knee) and linebacker Nate Stupar (knee) were all labeled probable for Sunday's game after practicing in full on Friday.
The Falcons' list of inactives for Week 1 against the Saints includes defensive lineman Corey Peters (Achilles), quarterback Sean Renfree, defensive back Javier Arenas, linebacker Nate Stupar, offensive lineman Ryan Schraeder, offensive lineman James Stone and linebacker Tyler Starr.
Renfree, Arenas, Stupar, Schraeder, Stone and Starr are all healthy scratches.
The Jaguars have pared down their roster to 53 on Saturday by cutting 20 players.
The players on that list are: C Michael Brewster, G Drew Nowak, DE Gerald Rivers, QB Ricky Stanzi, WR Chad Bumphis, FB Eric Kettani, TE Brandon Barden, OT Cody Booth, DL Deandre Coleman, DT Ricky Heimuli, S Craig Loston, QB Stephen Morris, K/P Kasey Redfern, G Tyler Shatley, TE D.J. Tialavea, LB Marcus Whitfield, WR Kerry Taylor, S Sherrod Martin, LB Nate Stupar and CB Jamell Fleming.
