Graham was released by the Panthers on Friday, Joe Person of the team's official site reports. Graham failed to distinguish himself from a crowd of receivers trying to make the final roster. He's now free to sign elsewhere.
Graham signed a contract Monday with the Panthers on Monday, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports. Graham, who recently switched back to his birth name (Trevor) after previously going by T.J., is looking for a fresh start in the NFL after playing in the Canadian Football League at this time last year. His best chance of making the Panthers' final roster will likely come as a return man who can operate as a situational burner on offense.
Graham was waived by the Eagles on Sunday. The 27-year-old wide receiver is heading into his fifth NFL season and is coming off a 2015 campaign with the Saints where he recorded four receptions for 24 yards over four games. He was unable to move his way up the team's depth chart during training camp and into the preseason, so he'll instead reenter the free agent pool and look for a deal elsewhere.
Graham is inactive for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. Willie Snead (calf) will return to action Sunday, leaving little incentive for coach Sean Payton to keep Graham active as the team's fifth receiver. Graham has four catches for 24 yards over his four games with New Orleans this season.
Graham agreed to a contract with the Saints on Tuesday, NOLA.com reports. Graham was released by the Saints late last week for the second time this season, but the team decided to bring him back for yet another stint. He remains the fifth wide receiver on the Saints' depth chart.
