Nate Stupar was signed by the Falcons midway though the 2014 season and has done everything he has been asked to do. Stupar is a great special teams player and isn’t terrible as a backup middle linebacker. Stupar will make the team for his special teams play rather than his defensive play, but regardless Stupar is important to the team.
