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.

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.

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
