I thought the NFL network said Canty got tagged. I guess they were wrong.

Nice pickup. I was really hoping we would let Starks and Kemo walk and be able to pickup Canty and a vet OT like Tra Thomas.

From what I understand, Jerry is all but getting ready to give Ware a huge payday. With Snyder opening his wallet generously on Haynesworth, who knows? Ware may want to command the same pay...which is prolly why we let Canty walk.

Like I mentioned earlier, Canty isn't exactly a Ware/Merriman/Harrison game-changer, but he's going to be a significant loss for us, especially his run D. IOW-he's hardly a "system" player either ala Asante Samuel.

Been wanting the Steelers for years to draft a young guy to play DE in the 3-4. Canty was a guy with some injury history that was a value in his draft year and I hoped we would draft him then. I was hoping we would right a wrong and get him in FA, but not at that pricetag.

Canty was a 4th round pick in 2005 (the 132nd pick) and the Steelers passed on him with the 131st pick and took............Fred Gibson, WR-Georgia. THOU SHALT NOT QUESTION THE FRONT OFFICE. (Kevin Colbert does a great job in the draft)

In my opinion this is the best move of free agency up to this point. I'm guessing they're going to move him inside with Umenyoria and Tuck already in place at end? That makes the most sense and seems like it would be an easy transition since he was in a 3-4. I've always liked Canty and thought he was one of the Cowboys best players, yet unfortunately not one that ever gets talked about. Good for him getting out of that circus and going back to his place of birth in New York. I'm looking forward to seeing that D-line the Giants have do some work.

Yep-like with Barber in the 2005 draft, he was as Parcells pick.

Yep-Canty is a DE, but he nonetheless commands a big body-6''7 and 300+ pds. When we traded Jason Ferguson to Miami, I was hoping Wade would move him inside and keep Ratliffe at his normal RDE position. Yes-Ratliffe had an outstanding 2 seasons at NT despite his bit of undersizeness, but at barely 300 pds and rather thin legs, he can wear down over the long haul.

Kevin Burnett(2005 2nd rounder) is all but gone too-No, he's not exactly starter material b/c he's injury-prone, however-he's valuable on passing downs b/c he's by far our best coverage LB.(Surprise, surprise-Parcells offered him a contract in Miami)

But yeah-either we replace him in this year's draft, or I'll have to just cross my fingers hoping Cris Cooley, Kevin Boss, et al don't consistently keep catching passes in the middle of the field.
