The Giants released Graham on Monday after being awarded offensive tackle Jamon Meredith off waivers from the Detroit Lions.

Graham was signed Saturday after Lawrence Tynes sprained his left ankle during practice Friday. Graham made four extra points in Sunday's 28-20 victory over the Lions. Tynes has improved and is expected to kick in Dallas on Monday night.

Meredith played in eight games with four starts for the Buffalo Bills in 2009. He played the first two games of this season with the Bills before being waived and claimed by the Lions. Detroit waived the former University of South Carolina standout Friday.
