He's played 6 complete seasons (all 16 games) out of 8 in the league. He's missed only 15 games out of 128 potential regular season games.

Actually he played nine games.

Almost double what Beason has in 2 years

The guy is better overall than Dwan. He may be even cheaper. Only caveat is he was unhealthy last season but he doesn't have an injury record. Other than that I don't see anything wrong with him signing.

Probably between him and Anthony Morrow contending for most successful Latin Alum athlete. He could definitely help the middle of the D and free up space for Kuechly...but Dwan Edwards is also a FA and I have a feeling they'd keep him first over signing Canty.

I don't think we're interested. Canty has knee issues and is not the player her used to be.

He played the last 9 games and got better and better. He was not cut specifically because of the injury but because it saves them cap space and they have depth at DT.

Be careful assuming that because Gettleman is from the Giants that he likes everybody from the Giants. In fact, he's more likely than anybody to dislike obvious candidates from the Giants because he may know more than anybody else regarding their health, attitude, etc. that other people wouldn't.

I have a particular Giant I'll be interested in seeing if we get: Kevin Boothe at OG

Also, It'll be interesting to see what happens at DT. Canty only makes sense if Dwan is gone.

I'd love to get Dwan back and do not believe its a given Ron is released. Having both of them back is still a possibility. We have Kearse who showed his worth at 1-tech along with Neblett and Chandler as backups. I'm not saying we don't need help, we do but everything depends on if we resign Dwan and release Edwards and of course our $$ situation.

Giants have cap trouble just like we do and they were going to inevitably cut some good talent in order to get under the cap just like we will have to.

I think Canty's worth a good look

Who wouold we cut today to give us cap room to sign anyone?

Some of the really ugly cuts need to wait until June 1 don't they?

I think ya'll are dreamimg if you think Canty is going to get signed anytime soon.
