Michael Boley will visit Bengals, per report

Elsa

The Giants released Boley in February.

Free agent linebacker Michael Boley will try out for the Cincinnati Bengalsaccording to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com.

Boley is an eight-year NFL veteran who spent his first four seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, who drafted him in the fifth round of the 2005 draft, and his next four with the New York Giants. Prior to the 2009 season, Boley signed a five-year, $25 million contract but was released in February.

Boley was arrested in February on child abuse charges, but the arrest had nothing to do with his release, according to Dave Hutchinson of the Newark Star-Ledger.

He played in all 16 games last season for the Giants, starting 11. He finished with 92 tackles, 0.5 sacks and three interceptions.

His best season was with the Falcons in 2007, when he had a career-best 102 tackles, three sacks and two interceptions.
