The Giants released linebacker Michael Boley on Tuesday.
Boley, 30, was a mainstay on the Giants' defense but had been slowed by injuries. By releasing him, the Giants can save $3.1 million of the $4.25 million base salary he was owed in 2013; the remaining $1.4 million is applied to the salary cap next season, the final year of his contract.
