Giants LS Zak DeOssie was added to the NFC's Pro Bowl roster on Tuesday to be their "need" player. The NFC coach, Falcons head coach Mike Smith, selected him.

"Through my experience from the last time I went, I understand that this is the time when they choose the long-snappers. … Apparently somebody down in Atlanta saw something that they like and extended an invitation to me, which I'm very fortunate about," said DeOssie, who also went to the Pro Bowl in 2008.

DeOssie will be the fourth Giants player on the NFC roster, joining DE Justin Tuck, OG Chris Snee and S Antrel Rolle.
