Free agents that just got released

New York Giants release linebacker Michael Boley - NFL.com

The veteran linebacker was released Tuesday after four seasons in New York, a move earlier reported by NFL.com's Albert Breer and later confirmed by the team. Boley appeared in every game for the Giants in 2012, starting 11 games and finishing fourth on the team with 84 tackles.


Frostee Rucker released by Cleveland Browns - NFL.com

A top free-agent signing by Cleveland last year, Rucker started all 16 games and finished with 48 tackles and four sacks in his one season with the Browns. Rucker made $6 million last season and $2 million of his $2.5 million contract for 2013 would have been guaranteed if he was still on the roster Wednesday, according to a report by TheSidelineView.com


I thought it might be good to have a separate thread for us to keep track of players getting released that might be interesting in FA.

Re: Free agents that just got released

Can't see Rucker having any real worth to the Saints, since he is about the same size as Smith - while a little lighter though - and, therefore, ideally a 4-3 DE.

Also, the Browns decided to let him go because they were switching away from a 4-3 defense, so it would seem that he won't fit a 3-4 defense.

New York Giants Release Ahmad Bradshaw and Chris Canty

The New York Giants made a dramatic move on Wednesday, as they have decided to release running back Ahmad Bradshaw after six years with the team.

Pro Football Talk reported the news via Twitter:

In addition, the team has decided to part ways with defensive tackle Chris Canty, according to Albert Breer of NFL Network:

Canty has been a part of the organization for four years, but he only played in nine games this year. His production no longer justified his salary.

However, the big story is the dismissal of Bradshaw, who had been a part of both Super Bowl wins in 2007 and 2011.

The running back was very understanding of the situation. According to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com, he told ESPN's Josina Anderson:

I saw it coming because of the money [...]. Everything is about money I guess, so yes I was expecting it. I'm not discouraged at all. I'm just looking towards getting healthy and working with somebody else. That is all I can do. The Giants fans will always be remembered and always be loved. This is where I started and I just want to thank everybody for their support. Hopefully I'll be back soon.

Bradshaw has been the leading rusher for the Giants for each of the last three seasons. In 2012, he finished with 1,015 rushing yards and six touchdowns. He also added 245 receiving yards on 23 catches.

Unfortunately, injuries have been a problem for the running back throughout his career. He missed two games this season and has only played a full 16-game schedule once in his six years in the league.

Most recently, he revealed that he underwent surgery on his right foot at the end of January, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.

This was his second surgery on the same foot and it seems that New York believed that he was no longer worth the risk.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

I've always liked Canty, and if he could be had on the cheap, I wouldn't mind at all adding him to the roster.

He is 6-7 and 317, so he could play as the other DE and tie up O-linemen with his great wingspan or he might even be able play the NT in certain packages.

Canty would be an interesting option in my book especially if he does not get wild offers and is willing to back down a little

Could we get Bradshaw and Ivory to do a job share?
