Giants weren’t aware of Boley’s legal problems

In February, the Giants cut linebacker Michael Boley.  Three days later, he pleaded guilty to felony child abuse in Alabama.

For the team, there was no connection between the two incidents.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Giants were not aware of the situation when cutting Boley, who was due to earn a base salary of $4.25 million.

Of course, the Giants and every other team now know about it, which could make it harder for him to find a job.  Especially if he failed to inform the NFL of the situation at any point before it became public.

  1. I’m not up on Michael Boley’s level of talent at this point in his career really, but let’s just say I’m willing to bet he’s not on the “PFT free agent team” for a reason. If the Giants cut him for salary purposes, and he went unsigned for this long, AND THEN this came out, I’m willing to bet that:
    A. he gets a nice suspension from the NFL that will preclude teams from signing him, and
    B. aforementioned suspension notwithstanding, no team would/will go near him anyway.

    Enjoy the rest of your days, preferably not around children if at all possible.

  2. Wow what a coward. Boley has more issues he needs to deal with besides finding a new team.

    Hope the child realizes that he did nothing to deserve what happened.

  3. He’ll get a job. In a league filled with rapists, woman beaters and animal killers, what’s one child abuser? It’s not like he’s gay. Okay, sarcasm off. Scum.

  4. Suuuuuuuuuuuure the Giants didn’t know anything. And the Boston marathon bomber’s wife didn’t notice her husband making bombs in the kitchen and stealing her pressure cooker.

  5. Sure the team didn’t know about it. Sure the league office didn’t know. Sure. Right. Yeah. Uh huh.

  6. This is a plea bargin. The plea deal allows Boley to enter a pre-trial diversion program. If he complies with all terms of the deal, the felony abuse charges will eventually be dropped.

    Nothing serious here.

  7. This isn’t the kind of person you want anybody looking up too. True role model right here. Your not worhty of being a father, let alone a pro ball player. Pathetic.

  8. Whether the Giants knew or not – whether they cut him for salary, or they cut him for this incident..

    Either way – isn’t it a GOOD thing they didn’t allow him to stay with their organization based on this news? They found out and cut him.

    You Giant haters are pathetic.
