Giants released WLB Michael Boley.
Boley's name had been mentioned as a release candidate since the season ended, but this wasn't a lock. Owed a $4.25 million salary and $250K workout bonus, Boley's release saves the Giants $3.1 million in cap space. Boley was benched for the final three games of the season in favor of Spencer Paysinger and Jacquian Williams. Prior to Week 15, he played 92 percent of the defensive snaps, but struggled against both the pass and the run. New York is aiming to get younger all around in 2013. Boley will turn 31 in August.
