Canty struggled with injuries last season but he is a good intrior pass-rusher when healthy.

Btw, former Giants DT Chris Canty visited the Titans over the weekend and will now meet with the Chiefs. Could be more visits coming.

The #Titans made a contract offer to veteran DL Chris Canty following visit, but he's continuing to explore his options. Has visited KC, too

Giants also release Chris Canty. He was due $6.25M in salary and a $250K workout bonus in 2013.

There goes another.

Corey Webster and David Diehl are next if they don't take pay cuts.

He as a good player when healthy but just couldn't stay on the field. I wouldn't mind the Bengals taking a look at him to play DE for us...

Chris Canty was not offered a pay cut before he was cut.

Bad news comes in threes, right? I've heard there is likely one more cut coming. Not official yet, though. #NYG


that sucks...

Seems weird he wasn't offered a pay cut.

I was under the impression Canty was pretty solid for you guys when he played? Unless there is something going on here the Giants know of that we don't, I wouldn't mind the Dolphins taking a look at Canty... seems like he could be good depth, if nothing else.

He was above average when he was healthy but that wasn't often enough to justify the money.

Seems like a good teammate and person so I can't see that being a reason for the cut.

Just the play didn't justify the money.

He should be picked up quickly. I think he could be a solid rotational guy especially for a DT needy team like maybe..Carolina?
