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

Date:

Bucs promoted DT Frank Okam from the practice squad.

Okam was waived on Nov. 22 after making 10 tackles in six games earlier this season. He'll provide depth along Tampa's defensive line after DT John McCargo was placed on injured reserve Monday.

The coaches must be satisfied with Albert Haynesworth at defensive tackle. Okam recorded 10 tackles in six games with the Bucs this season.
Tue, Nov 22, 2011 02:42:00 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.

Bucs re-signed DT Frank Okam.

Cut by the Texans last October, Okam notched 12 tackles in three games for the Bucs after being signed off the practice squad in late November. He'll be a reserve along Tampa's young but talented defensive line this season.

Bucs signed DT Frank Okam off their practice squad.

Okam, 25, was billed as a run-clogging nose tackle type coming out of Texas in 2008, but he couldn't get on the field in two-plus seasons for the Texans.
Wed, Nov 24, 2010 01:27:00 PM

Seahawks released DT Frank Okam.

Okam couldn't stick after signing with the team less than two weeks ago. He'll get some looks around the league from teams needing depth along the defensive front.
Sat, Nov 13, 2010 02:59:00 PM

Seahawks signed DT Frank Okam, formerly of the Texans, to a two-year contract.

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.

Texans waived DT Frank Okam.

The former Texas Longhorn failed to make any sort of impact, registering just five tackles since he was taken in the fifth round three years ago.
Mon, Oct 25, 2010 01:26:00 PM

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

The wide-bodied fifth-rounder out of Texas will start next to Amobi Okoye in the middle for the Texans, as they try to contain the league's leading rusher, Cedric Benson. Expect a big day out of Benson today for the Bengals.
Sun, Oct 18, 2009 10:37:00 AM

Texans DT Frank Okam said he's looking to compete for a starting job after taking advantage of the additional reps he got during OTAs when Travis Johnson was on the sidelines.

Okam slimmed down by 25 pounds after his rookie season and said he is coming into this training camp in much better shape. He'll compete with Johnson and Deljuan Robinson for snaps.
Mon, Jul 6, 2009 12:47:00 PM

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.
