Jets Will Host DE Chris Canty On Friday & Saturday

New, comments

The Jets are certainly doing their homework on the defensive line.

According to Aaron Wilson, the Jets will host the former Giants and Ravens defensive end on Friday and Saturday

Chris Canty will be entering his 11th year in the league in 2015. Just over a week ago, he was cut by the Baltimore Ravens having played for them for just two seasons. He played in only 31.6% of defensive snaps last year and missed 5 games entirely.

The Ravens moved on from Canty to create $2.66 in salary cap relief. Canty did consider retirement before deciding to continue his career this year. He recorded 33 tackles with 0.5 sacks and 1 forced fumble last year.

He never quite made the impact that was expected when he signed with Baltimore after becoming a free agent. He did win a Superbowl with the New York Giants and had some of his best seasons in blue. In 2011 he racked up 47 tackles and 4 sacks. He would be an interesting option for depth if we lost any of our defensive line free agents.
