Default Giants steal DE Chris Canty from Dallas

OK-Canty isn't exactly a Demarcus Ware/James Harrison one-man show, game-changer, but nonetheless, *ugh* our run D could very well take a hit. Plus Canty(a once Parcells' apple-of-his-eye in the 2005 draft latter rounds) was starting to gel with Wade's schemes.

New York Giants sign defensive lineman Chris Canty
by Mike Garafolo/The Star-Ledger
Sunday March 01, 2009, 4:59 PM

Three players in, three players added.
The Giants have plugged another free-agent piece into their defensive front today by signing lineman Chris Canty, the team announced moments ago. Someone infoirmed of the contract's terms said it's a 6-year, $42-million deal with $17.25 million guaranteed. The former Cowboy will join LB Michael Boley and DT Rocky Bernard - both signed yesterday - as integral members of the Giants' front seven.

Canty, 26, is the biggest of the three additions - and the biggest surprise. A 3-4 defensive end for four seasons since the Cowboys drafted him in the fourth round of the 2005 draft, the 6-7, 304-pound Canty will now likely switch to tackle in the Giants' 4-3 scheme. It won't be that big of an adjustment, though Canty will now have to get used to playing over opposing guards instead of tackles. He had 10 sacks (6 1/2 combined in the past two seasons) in his four years with Dallas. There's also a chance the Giants could line Canty up at end in some situations.

With a contract like the one he just signed, Canty will surely be a starter, which means either Fred Robbins or Barry Cofield will soon be in a backup role as part of a tackle rotation.

Robbins was one of the Giants' best defensive players through the first six games of last season, as he equaled his career-high of 5 1/2 sacks. But Robbins didn't register a sack the rest of the season and didn't get nearly as much penetration after suffering two broken hands and a shoulder injury. Robbins also injured his knee in the playoff loss to the Eagles and, like Cofield, he recently had his knee scoped.

Cofield is expected to be 100 percent by late spring and Robbins should also be recovered in the next few months. But Robbins will be 32 next month and will be a free agent after this upcoming season, so he might be the one losing his starting job for Canty and his days with the Giants could be numbered. And Jay Alford, a third-round pick in 2007 who's also the short snapper for field goals, is now seemingly fifth on the depth chart at tackle.

Last year yes as he was an RFA, and signed his 1 year tender with us. But not this year.

thats a great signing but i actually like them signing Michael Boley better, because now they have a linebacker who can rush the QB with that beast of a line
