TANTRIC-NINJA

WFNZ interviews Chris Canty Who Wants to Be a Panther

63 posts in this topic

I've seen him listed as a DT at 6'7" 315 on ESPN and a DE at 6'7" at 285 on Profootballreference. Anyone know which is correct?

He's legit 6'7'', 300+....would love to pick up Canty by the way. He'd give us a solid vet rush tackle that can also play DE in our 3-4 looks.

The fact that TD is lobbying for him can't hurt.

If this does happen, which Edwards would he be replacing?

Dwan Edwards, even though I think Ron Edwards will be cut as well.

Canty was with the Giants who Gettleman worked for, so if he has anything left, you bet Gettleman will know exactly what he is worth. If we don't offer him, then it won't just be about the money but value for the money.

If we keep one of them, it will be Dwan. I think Ron will be gone after ending up on IR for the past 2 seasons.

Oh I agree. But he was asking who would Canty likely be replacing and my response was Dwan. Both play the 3-tech.

Dwan is a free agent in 2013 so we likely are going to talk to both of them and may make an offer to one or the other. Who knows with Gettleman being new.

Yeah I know. I would be fine with Canty or bringing back Dwan as long as the price is reasonable.

Canty isn't coming here. As much as I would LOVE him here, he's not going to sign. No money. -___-

I think we'll have a little money to spend. Might not be a lot but we'll definitely have something to spend to bring in some quality FA. I don't think Canty will demand a huge salary, IMO.

After looking over his stats at PFF he seems equally as solid against the run if not better as he does in pass rushing with last year being his best overall as a heavy rotational guy.

Its impossible to gauge how much of a factor Gettleman was in bringing Canty to NY in the first place but they did sign him to a pretty hefty deal when Gettleman was the head pro personel guy there. http://sports.espn.g...tory?id=3944397

If we could roll with him and Dwan as our starters next year I'd be pretty happy with this, as it delays having to draft a DT early this year and allows us to focus on other needs for now. The pass rush from our front 4 could be deadly if everyone plays as well as they did last year.
