New York Giants Sign DTs Carlton Powell, Oren Wilson, Waive Martin Parker

The New York Giants announced several roster moves on Wednesday. The Giants signed defensive tackles Carlton Powell and Oren Wilson. The Giants also waived injured defensive tackle Martin Parker. Parker has a herniated disk in his back which will require surgery.

Powell (6-foot-3, 310) was a fifth-round pick of the Denver Broncos in 2008. Powell spent his rookie season on the reserve/physically unable to perform list. Since that season, Powell has spent time on the practice squads for the Browns and Broncos and was in training camp with the Buccaneers (2010) and Jets (2011). Powell saw three games worth of action for the Falcons last season and made one assisted tackle.

Wilson (6-foot-1, 305) is an undrafted rookie out of Akron. Wilson transferred to Akron after originally playing for Michigan State.

The Giants needed to make the depth moves after Parker and Shaun Rogers (blood clot in leg) were ruled out for the season.
