Free agent Chris Canty visiting the Kansas City Chiefs

Does free agent Chris Canty spark your interest? The New York Giants released the defensive lineman last week and now he's visiting the Kansas City Chiefs. This according to Mike Garafolo of USA Today:

Btw, former Giants DT Chris Canty visited the Titans over the weekend and will now meet with the Chiefs. Could be more visits coming.


Interesting. Very interesting. You know what position Canty played in New York? Right defensive end, same as Glenn Dorsey, who is of course a free-agent-to-be on March 12. We haven't heard rumblings as to whether Dorsey will be back but the general thinking outside the team is that he won't be. There's also the issue of the large sum of money that's due to Tyson Jackson.

Also of some note would be that he would not offset any FA compensation we might get for losing Dorsey (and only Dorsey...I'm not contemplating losing Bowe or Albert), though with Reid looking to rebuild the squad, I'd imagine we'll be active enough in free agency to offset our losses either way.

Great get.

As long as Dorsey and Jackson are gone.....I'd be happy with this signing.

Cut jacksons sorry ass and spend that money on this guy, or anyone else not named tyson jackson.

RT @Tomm_Rossi Can both Canty and Bradshaw sign before March 12th since released? ... Yes. So can Nick Barnett, Demetress Bell, etc.

If we sign this guy he's gonna make us LOL at how bad Jackson and Dorsey were as pass rushers.

mcaj22 02-11-2013 12:03 PM

We don't like Nick Barnett? Why not?

Barnett could be a very nice addition alongside DJ. The last guy is kinda dead now, so we need someone that can do the job credibly.

That shouldn't stop us from drafting an ILB at some point, but Barnett could be a very good addition.

Chris Canty draws interest from Titans and Chiefs
Posted by Josh Alper on February 11, 2013, 1:49 PM EST

ReutersThe Giants let defensive tackle Chris Canty go last week and he isnít wasting any time trying to find a new team.

Mike Garafolo of USA Today reports that Canty has visited with the Titans and lined up a visit with the Chiefs since getting released in a cost-saving move by the Giants. Garafolo also reports that Canty is expected to make more visits in the coming weeks.

The interest in Canty isnít surprising. With free agency not starting for another month, there arenít many experienced contributors out on the open market at this point in time. Canty also has experience playing in both 4-3 and 3-4 fronts, versatility that will help him continue to draw interest from teams looking to solidify their defensive line for the 2013 season.

Kansas City is expected to run a 3-4 under new defensive coordinator Bob Sutton, so Canty would likely slot in as an end with the Chiefs. Defensive end Glenn Dorsey is a free agent while Tyson Jackson is a long shot to return thanks to middling production and a salary in excess of $14 million for 2013 under his current deal.

Tennessee doesnít have as many expected departures from their 4-3 front, but Canty would certainly find a place on a run defense that gave up more than 127 yards per game in 2012.

Count Zarth 02-11-2013 12:15 PM

Nick Barnett is barely 230 lbs....there's no way he can play inside.
