Broncos placed DT Marvin Austin on injured reserve with a groin injury, ending his season.
The 2011 draft bust appeared in 15 games for the Broncos last season, performing competently in 279 snaps. The fact that he's headed to I.R. with a groin injury means he should eventually be cut loose with a settlement. Aug 20 - 4:53 PM

Broncos signed DT Marvin Austin.

Always long on talent and short on production, Austin represents a flier add for the Broncos. He's appeared in just 11 games since the Giants took him 52nd overall in 2011, battling injuries and ineffectiveness. Austin spent most of last season on the street and won't be a lock for the Broncos final roster.

Cowboys waived/injured DT Marvin Austin.

Dallas is the third team to waive Austin since final cuts. He'll revert to injured reserve if/when he clears waivers. The 2011 second-rounder appeared in one game for Big D, making one tackle. Suspended for his senior season at North Carolina and injury plagued through his first three NFL campaigns, Austin has appeared in just 11 live football games since 2009. It's starting to look like too much to overcome for a player who once possessed a great deal of raw talent.

Cowboys signed DT Marvin Austin, formerly of the Dolphins.

The 2011 second-round pick keeps getting chances because he has talent, but to this point Austin has not shown any of it on the field, primarily due to injuries. He'll be a depth piece on a depleted Cowboys defensive line.

Dolphins waived DT Marvin Austin.

The 2011 second-rounder's stay lasted three weeks in Miami. He was active twice, making one tackle in 28 snaps. It's possible his draft pedigree will earn him a look or two on waivers, but Austin has been an immense bust to this point in his career.

Giants waived or released DT Marvin Austin, DEs Adrian Tracy, Adewale Ojomo and Matt Broha, LB Kyle Bosworth, OLs Eric Herman, Stephen Goodin and Bryant Browning, CBs Terrence Frederick and Charles James, and WRs Kevin Hardy, Marcus Harris and Julian Talley.

The Giants attempted to trade Austin ahead of Saturday's deadline, but predictably found no takers. He's appeared in just eight games since being selected with the No. 52 pick in the 2011 draft. Herman was a seventh-round pick in April. Tracy, a 2010 sixth-rounder, appeared in all 16 games in 2012.

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports the Giants are trying to trade DT Marvin Austin.

Austin hasn't played football since his junior year at North Carolina due to injuries and suspensions. The Giants' attempt to trade him could indicate Austin will be cut shortly. He was the 52nd overall pick in the 2011 draft.

ESPN New York considers DT Marvin Austin on the roster bubble.

The No. 52 overall pick in 2011, Austin has struggled with injuries and effectiveness in his first two seasons -- appearing in just eight games. He's behind Shaun Rogers and second-round pick Jonathan Hankins for backup defensive tackle snaps. Austin and Mike Patterson are competing for one spot.
Wed, Aug 28, 2013 09:52:00 PM

The New York Daily News reports Giants third-year DT Marvin Austin's roster spot is in jeopardy.

Austin, the No. 52 overall pick in the 2011 draft, has been working with the third-team defense in training camp, and he's battled injuries for much of his young career. He missed his entire rookie season with a torn pectoral before a back injury limited him to eight games last season. The Giants are loaded at defensive tackle. Austin would draw some interest if he were to get cut.

ESPN New York expects Giants DT Marvin Austin to keep his roster spot.

The 2011 second-rounder played just 103 snaps last season after missing his entire rookie year with a torn pectoral, but it's hard to envision GM Jerry Reese pulling the plug after only two years. Thanks to a variety of issues, Austin has played mind-bogglingly little football since 2009, and desperately needs a healthy training camp and preseason. He missed most of last summer's exhibition season with a back issue.
