Draft Scout Marvin Austin News
05/07/14 - DT Marvin Austin was signed by the Broncos May 5.
Austin (6-foot-2, 312 pounds) has played in 11 NFL games with the New York Giants (2011-12), Miami Dolphins (2013) and Dallas Cowboys (2013). He has recorded 10 tackles (7 solo).
The Giants selected Austin in the second round (52nd overall) of the 2011 draft out of North Carolina. He spent his rookie season on injured reserve before playing in a career-high eight games in 2012.
11/06/13 - --DT Marvin Austin was waived/injured because of a back injury he suffered in practice. He played one game with the Cowboys and made on tackle.
10/23/13 - --DT Marvin Austin signed with the Cowboys on Tuesday in hopes of rebuilding his career. He was given Jay Ratliff's old locker and No. 90. The Cowboys are hoping the former second-round pick of the Giants in 2011 can live up to his potential and provide some of Ratliff's old dominance.
"It's definitely a new beginning and a lot to build on," Austin said. Austin says he is not in great shape right now but hopes he can catch some of the magic of respected defensive line coach Rod Marinelli in Dallas.
"Not good enough," Austin said. "To be honest with you just the way they practice and the way they want you to go out there and play, I've got to keep working every day to get in shape to go out there and perform. His record speaks for itself and coach (Monte) Kiffin also. The way that those guys coach, and the success they've had in this league, I have no excuses."
10/22/13 - DT Marvin Austin was signed to the roster on Monday as the Cowboys continued the revolving door on the defensive line. Austin -- 6-2, 312 pounds -- was cut by the Miami Dolphins on Oct. 13 after playing in two games and making one tackle. A former second-round pick by the New York Giants in 2011, he missed his rookie year with a pectoral muscle injury and played in eight games last year with eight tackles.
"He's one of those guys we kept our eye on," coach Jason Garrett said. "Obviously our situation on the defensive line we've had a lot of different injuries up there, so you look at the landscape of personnel and see who you can bring in and try to help your football team. He was playing with Miami just a couple of weeks ago. They released him. He's in pretty decent shape because he's been in training camp and been playing. We'd like to tap into some of that ability that caused him to be such a high draft pick."
09/24/13 - DT Marvin Austin was signed by the Dolphins, who placed defensive tackle Vaughn Martin on injured reserve, the team announced Tuesday.
The Dolphins were without defensive tackle Paul Soliai last Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons and the acquisition of Austin signals that Soliai could miss more time. Austin was one of several defensive tackles who had a tryout last week in Miami.
