Born in Mount Morris, Michigan, he played college football at Central Michigan University and was drafted in the fourth round of the 1957 NFL Draft.

The Giants received Podoley and end Joe Walton from the Redskins, the Redskins received Fred Dugan from the Cowboys and placekicker John Aveni, end Jerry Daniels, and defensive halfback Dave Whitsell from the Giants, and the Cowboys received placekicker Allen Green and a sixth round for the 1962 NFL Draft from the Giants that the team later used to draft George Andrie.
