Was not expecting this. But I can see why with the money reasons. Good player but his play did seem to drop off last season...along with the rest of the defense. Be interesting to see what direction they go now. This LB corps needs some love.

Would he fit in a 3-4 as a WILB? Ravens need to look at guys who can cover well and if he can fit, may be a decent stopgap.

Is Boley decent in coverage? If so, if I were the Vikings id take a chance on him at WLB. Erin Henderson is a free agent and I have no interest in bringing him back.


Yes hes pretty good but he isnt great.


Sounds good to me. Anythings an upgrade over Erin Henderson

Always like Boley, but don't think he'd be a good pick up for the Pats, he's a good coverage LBer but I think he'd want to be a starter too, so with Mayo, Spikes and Hightower, I don't think we could afford him or entice him to come to Foxboro

At this point he's a stopgap player.

I don't expect to see him get a big paycheck from anyone else. But I'd imagine he's still serviceable.

He was really, really good for the Falcons the last year he was here. Back then was by far our best LB. If he's anywhere close to what he was then, a team will pick him up and have a pretty decent LB to work with.

A good Giant, but he can't cover anymore.

They have to. Giants are good at letting a player go a year early than a year late.

I still think he's a serviceable starter though.
