Giants Release Veteran Linebacker Michael Boley

The New York Giants began their overhaul of their defense on Tuesday, as the team informed veteran linebacker Michael Boley of his release.

Boley leaves the G-Men with one-year left on a deal that was a five-year deal that paid him $25 million.

“They let me know they’re moving things for the team in a different direction,” Boley said.

The Giants D was a sore spot in 2012, wrapping up the season 31st overall in the league, and they also gave up a franchise record for total yards.

Boley came to the Giants in 2009 as a highly sought after free agent. He has dealt with hamstring and knee issues in recent years and also had surgery to repair a torn hip labrum shortly after signing with the Giants in 2009.
