Chris Canty: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Canty's contract wasn't all that unreasonable, but he's not much more than a solid veteran, and the Ravens have some interesting young talent on the defensive line. Assuming the 10-year veteran doesn't re-sign with Baltimore, his absence should clear the way for Timmy Jernigan to join the starting lineup in 2015. With just 21.5 sacks in his 10 NFL seasons, Canty has never been much of an IDP producer.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Canty missed this past Sunday's game in Indianapolis and will now be sidelined for a few more weeks. As a result, DeAngelo Tyson should remain in the Ravens' starting lineup for the near future.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Canty, never the type to put up big numbers, is expected to start at defensive end, after recording two sacks and 30 tackles in 15 games during his first season with the Ravens.
Canty will likely see playing time at both defensive tackle and defensive end as a key cog for a deep group of linemen. He won't necessarily be a starter in name, but if healthy, Canty should have a major role. He has never topped 47 tackles or four sacks in a season, so IDP leaguers should look elsewhere.
When healthy, Canty can be a disruptive force in the interior line, and he'll be in the mix, assuming he makes it all the way back from offseason knee surgery.
Starting right defensive tackle.
Coming off an injury-plagued and disappointing season, Canty should be one of the team's starting defensive tackles. While he has some pass rushing skills, he'll be asked mostly to occupy blockers and stop the run.
Canty brings excellent size and strength to the interior of the Giants defensive line. He'll rotate with Fred Robbins, Barry Coefield and Rocky Bernard.
Recorded 3.5 sacks and 43 tackles as an important cog in the Cowboys' DE rotation.
Fighting for a starting spot in the Cowboys' 3-4 defense after recording just one sack in 2006.
Canty was a fourth-round steal in 2005, and should be a starting DT in the Cowboys 3-4 defense. Look for decent tackle numbers and a nice handful of sacks from him in 2006.
A first round talent who slipped in the draft due to injuries, Canty will provide depth up front in the 3-4 defense to begin the season.
