Giants signed DT Frank Okam, formerly of the Bucs.
Okam, 27, has appeared in 25 career games, making 33 tackles. A 2008 fifth-round pick of the Texans, Okam was out of the league in 2012. He faces extremely long odds of cracking the final 53 on a deep interior line in New York. Sat, May 11, 2013 05:32:00 PM

Buccaneers declared DL Frank Okam, OG Jeremy Zuttah, WR Sammie Stroughter, CB Myron Lewis, LB Zac Diles, OT James Lee, and DE Tim Crowder inactive for Week 9 against the Saints.

Tampa Bay is relatively healthy coming off their bye. Okam did not participate in practice all week and was considered a long-shot to play. Roy Miller will provide depth behind Brian Price and Gerald McCoy. Ted Larsen will fill-in for Zuttah on the offensive line.

Seahawks released DT Frank Okam.

With Kentwan Balmer sliding over to replace Red Bryant at left end, Okam is expected to play behind Junior Siavii inside. Colin Cole (ankle) is likely out for Week 9. Owners of Ahmad Bradshaw shouldn't be intimidated by Seattle's run defense this week.

Rookie DT Frank Okam will draw the start for the Texans in place of Shaun Cody (flu) on Sunday.

Texans signed fifth-round DT Frank Okam to a four-year contract. The deal includes a $178,000 signing bonus.

At 6'5/320, Okam is ideally built to play nose in Houston's 4-3 scheme. He'll compete there with Travis Johnson, who is recovering from a pelvic injury.
