"That's some tough news. Not only is he a good teammate, he's a good friend of mine," Canty said before being honored. "Me and him go way back, before the scars. We've known each other a long time. He's a good person. He's a good teammate, good friend."

On the one-year anniversary of the Giants' Super Bowl triumph, Boley's release marks the first major move the Giants have made as they try to fix a team that missed the playoffs for the third time in four years. And Canty recognizes the team could make an overhaul to the roster.

"It's tough. We knew that there were going to have to be changes. Certainly the way we performed down the stretch, changes are necessary," Canty said. "This football team did not play up to its potential, we didn't play together, and we gotta find a way to fix that. We've got to find a way to be accountable and responsible to the organization, to our teammates and ourselves."
