Canty and the Titans
By Tim Kavanagh
On Monday, we made note of the fact that former Giants DT Chris Canty had begun making free agent visits to teams around the league, including the Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans. In K.C., Canty would likely slot in as a 3-4 DE, perhaps replacing impending free agent Glenn Dorsey; for the Titans, Canty would stick inside, as he did during his recent stint with the Giants.
Canty was slated to make $6.25 million in 2013 for the Giants, but was deemed too pricey for what he can provide at this stage in his career. Tennessee, on the other hand, is somewhat flush with cap space -- $19.4 million, per ESPN's John Clayton, and that's before any cap-related releases by the team -- and could use another veteran presence on the interior D-line, so long as the price is right. In the opinion of ESPN AFC South blogger Paul Kuharsky, however, the resources should be committed elsewhere:
Paul KuharsyIt's not a terrible idea
"It would be nice for them to add interior depth, but tackle isn't nearly the priority end is on the defensive line."
