New York Giants: Jeremy Horne
The Giants waived tackle Levy Adcock, wide receiver Marcus Davis, defensive back Buddy Jackson, linebacker Charleus Dieseul, defensive tackle Bobby Skinner and kicker Jake Rogers to make room.
Okam, who was a fifth-round pick in 2008 by Houston, played for the Texans (2008-10) and Buccaneers (2010-11). Palmer played the previous three seasons for Atlanta and has 21 catches for 123 yards and three touchdowns.
Horne, 26, was teammates with Victor Cruz at UMass and the 6-2 receiver stood out at rookie camp. So did Mertile and Stevenson. Mertile is a 6-1 rookie tryout from Florida International. Stevenson, who had an interception off Ryan Nassib in practice on Friday, is a 5-11 rookie safety from Georgia Southern.
