  • possible Boley return?

    Michael Boley - LB - Free AgentNewsday's Tom Rock gets the sense the Giants "haven't completely closed the door" on re-signing free agent WLB Michael Boley.The Newark Star-Ledger's Jenny Vrentas has the same feeling. Boley, 31 in August, was released by the Giants in a salary cap move in February, and he hasn't drawn an ounce of known interest since. He could be back at the minimum if the Giants don't come away with a linebacker in the draft.Related: Giants

    Hmmm I dont think so. He seemed to fall out of favor with TC. I dont remember the last time we cut someone and resigned him. Aaron Ross came back to us, but we didn't cut him.

          It worked out well! He was the unsung hero for our Gmen. I wish him the best and hope we have someone with his heart on the team this year!

            The Giants were reducing his snaps considerably toward the end of last year in favor of Williams. Boley, who was always known for his coverage, was 1 of the worst cover backers in the league last year. He had clearly lost a step.

            I would prefer we continue adding young players rather than old 1nes. I would only be for this move if he we were unlucky in the draft and none of the young LBs we like fell to us. Otherwise, I think it is time to let him go.

              If Williams gets hurt, maybe. And Williams has been hurt before...

              I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                    He had his career high in interceptions last year, with 3. He had his career 3rd most tackles in a season last year, with his 2nd best the year before.

                    I don't know I'd call him one of the worst cover LBs last year, or that he'd "lost a step". He wasn't cut loose because of diminished production. It was strictly a cap casualty move.

                      Is that why nobody has shown serious interest in him as a free agent? He has been available for some time now.

                      Also, why was his snap count so dramatically reduced late in the season in favor of Williams? Towards the end of the season he was playing ~25% of the snaps compared being among the highest on the defense in snap count earlier in the season.

                      The fact is he was clearly on the decline, his PFF grade for last year was -8.6 and he graded negatively in Run defense, pass defense and pass rush.

                      I do not deny his being released was a numbers game, but typically the guys who aren't earning their pay tend to get cut more often and even more often the guys who aren't earning their pay aren't playing well. Boley did not play well last year.

                        It wouldn't be a bad move for veteran minimum, he certainly knows the system and could provide valuable leadership and depth if it comes down to it. Problem is he was injured and awful lot the last couple of years.

                            "Hasn't drawn an ounce of known interest" . . . . that is telling

                              Ok...we've got enough old and marginal LB's on this team.
                              I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.
