The New York Giants have signed wideout Bennie Fowler III, release linebacker Nate Stupar ahead of Week 7 matchup.

Big Blue has made a few roster-moves heading into their Week 7 matchup this Sunday.

On Monday, the New York Giants signed wide receiver Bennie Fowler III.

Fowler, 28, previously played for the Giants in 2018 and through four games this season. New York released him ahead of their Week 5 game against the Minnesota Vikings in order to make room for a returning Golden Tate.

Fowler caught 12 balls for 99 yards through the four games he appeared in this season. His most productive game came in a 28-14 Week 2 loss to the Buffalo Bills, where he racked up five receptions for 51 yards. Fowler will now work alongside Tate, Cody Latimer, and rookie wideout Darius Slayton. It’s unclear when Sterling Shepard will be cleared to return from the concussion protocol.

In addition, the Giants have also released veteran linebacker Nate Stupar. Big Blue re-signed him this past offseason, only to release him on Sept. 6. They then signed him on Sept. 24 in order to help a depleting inside linebacker corps.

Alec Ogletree and Tae Davis were both out at the time with injuries. Davis is still nursing a concussion as Ogletree is back on the field after rehabbing a hamstring strain.

Stupar played in three games this season, starting in one. He racked up just three combined tackles. Last season, one in which he appeared in all 16 games (starting in one), Stupar combined for just 14 tackles.

The Giants are looking forward to their home matchup against the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday afternoon. They’ve dropped the last two games, as they’ve fallen to a below-.500 record of 2-4.
