The New York Giants only needed the services of Shayne Graham for one week, and have released the kicker in favor of Jamon Meredith, who was released by the Lions last week.

With the questionable depth on the offensive line this is a good move, but I wouldn’t expect the Giants to hold on to Meredith for very long. He won’t last the rest of the season with Kevin Boothe and Will Beatty coming back eventually. Kevin Boothe is set to coming off the physically unable to perform list this week, but his health remains in question.

Meredith is a fifth round pick from 2009, originally selected by the Green Bay Packers. He has been a career journeyman so far, going from the Packers to the Buffalo Bills to the Lions. He likely won’t see the field unless the Giants get serious injuries to three offensive lineman, since Adam Koets and Shawn Andrews are already on the roster as reserves.

Lawrence Tynes said he feels much better this week and should be able to get healthy enough to play next Monday against Dallas. Tom Coughlin seems confident he will return.

“I think he’s feeling better,” Coughlin said. “I have not taken him out today and watched him plant his foot, but I know he had a little bit of bounce in his step, even on Sunday.”

Hopefully they won’t have to waste another roster spot by having two kickers this week. Victor Cruz was already a casualty of having to do that, being place on injured reserve last week.

Eli Manning Has Interesting Reaction To Broncos' Super Bowl Win

Eli Manning was captured on video making an interesting face when the Denver Broncos cemented their Super Bowl 50 win. The Internet firmly believes Eli is upset that Peyton now has two rings just like he does, but this is simply an overreaction. Eli was clearly nervous throughout the game, and his odd facial expressions are more indicative of a sign of relief than anything else.
