Frank Okam DL NYG May 11 '13
Giants signed DT Frank Okam, formerly of the Bucs.
Okam, 27, has appeared in 25 career games, making 33 tackles. An original fifth-round pick of the Texans, Okam was out of the league in 2012. He faces extremely long odds of cracking the 53-man roster on a deep interior line in New York.

Buccaneers declared DL Frank Okam (calf), OG Jeremy Zuttah (knee), WR Sammie Stroughter, CB Myron Lewis, LB Zac Diles, OT James Lee, and DE Time Crowder inactive for Sunday's game 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.

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.
