Ravens declined DE Chris Canty's option.
It's not a surprise with Baltimore's cap situation. Canty is one of the top run-stopping ends in the league, but has durability concerns after spending the final seven games on I.R. The move creates $2.15M in cap room. Thu, Mar 3, 2016 12:44:00 PM

Ravens DE Chris Canty (torn pec) is not planning to retire.

In an interview with PFT Live, Canty said he is "looking forward to next season." Canty is under contract for one more season, but the cap-strapped Ravens may decide to shed his $2.915 million cap hit. The 33-year-old finished 2015 on injured reserve with a torn pectoral.

Ravens placed DE Chris Canty on injured reserve with a torn pectoral, ending his season.

It's a blow to Baltimore's run defense, where Canty has made an impact this season. Canty considered retirement in the 2015 offseason and recently turned 33. The Ravens have him under contract for one more year at $2.15 million.

Ravens re-signed DT Chris Canty to a two-year, $4.65 million contract.

The second year of the deal is a team option. Canty was drawing interest from a number of teams outside Baltimore, including the Jets and Seahawks. The Ravens parted ways with Canty in February but were able to bring him back at a team-friendly rate. Baltimore needed defensive line help after shipping Haloti Ngata to the Lions last week. A run stopper, Canty logged 360 snaps last season and should see a similar workload in 2015.

Free agent DT Chris Canty will visit the Seahawks on Thursday

Canty was cut by the Ravens three weeks ago. He then took a visit to the Jets but has been greeted with a pretty quiet market. In Seattle, Canty, 32, could replace free agent DT Kevin Williams in the Seahawks' tackle rotation.

Free agent DE Chris Canty will visit the Jets this weekend.

It's the first known interest in Canty since his release from Baltimore. Canty missed five games to injury in 2014 and had been considering retirement. He should only require a one-year deal.
Wed, Mar 4, 2015 05:04:00 PM

Ravens released DE Chris Canty.

Canty has been on the fence about playing in 2015, which probably made this decision easier for Baltimore. Canty's exit frees up $2.66 million in cap room. The 32-year-old registered 33 tackles during his final season with Baltimore. Canty hinted that he plans to continue his career.
Fri, Feb 27, 2015 11:29:00 AM

ESPN's Jamison Hensley says there's "little chance" the Ravens will retain DE Chris Canty.

Canty is due a $2.66 million cap hit in 2015. That's not an unreasonable amount, but with so much depth on the defensive line, Baltimore can afford to cut him loose. Of course, there's still a decent chance Canty retires this offseason.

Although he's mulling retirement, Ravens DE Chris Canty has been "working out regularly."

Coach John Harbaugh said he's yet to speak with Canty about his plans for 2015. The Ravens could clear Canty's entire $2.66 million salary from the cap by cutting him loose. Now 32, Canty was not an asset in 360 snaps last season.

Ravens DE Chris Canty is considering retirement.

32 years old and owed a $2.66 million base salary in 2015, Canty's fate may be sealed in Baltimore, anyway, following the emergence of rookie Timmy Jernigan. Canty battled a staph infection in his wrist and recurring ankle injuries in 2014, though he remained mostly effective on the field when healthy. Canty plans to "take his time to talk things over with his family."

Ravens RE Chris Canty (wrist) is expected to miss 2-3 weeks.

Canty recently underwent surgery to remove an infection from his wrist. With Canty sitting out last week's loss to the Colts, DeAngelo Tyson got the start opposite Haloti Ngata next to NT Brandon Williams. The Ravens hope to get second-round rookie DL Timmy Jernigan (knee) back in the mix shortly.

Ravens RE Chris Canty will miss a "few weeks" after undergoing surgery to fix an infection in his wrist.

It's a blow to an otherwise impressive Baltimore defensive line, which has been snuffing out run games along with DROY candidate ILB C.J. Mosley. Expect rookie Timmy Jernigan and versatile DeAngelo Tyson to get extra snaps.

The Ravens can save $2 million in cap room by releasing RE Chris Canty.

Canty was a disappointment in his first year with the Ravens, grading out as just the No. 23 3-4 end by Pro Football Focus. His roster spot isn't guaranteed with Kapron Lewis-Moore, Brandon Williams and rookie Timmy Jernigan all showing well this offseason. Lewis-Moore and Jernigan are candidates to start opposite Haloti Ngata, with Williams taking over at nose tackle.

The Ravens have paid RE Chris Canty his scheduled $500,000 roster bonus.

It secures Canty’s roster spot for this season, where he’s due a $2 million base salary. Canty had 30 tackles, two sacks and two forced fumbles over 15 games in his first year with the Ravens. Although his pass-rush skills have faded some in recent seasons, Canty remains a high-quality NFL starter. Now entering his age-32 campaign, Canty's strength is as a run defender.
Fri, Mar 14, 2014 08:15:00 PM

According to Ravens beat reporter Aaron Wilson, DE Chris Canty "had a dominant minicamp."

Wilson noted that Canty looked explosive and slimmed down, and the former Cowboys fourth-round draft pick from Virginia consistently disrupted passing lanes and shoved offensive linemen into the backfield. The Ravens envision a versatile role for Canty with him lining up everywhere from defensive tackle to defensive end, but he isn't expected to play nose tackle.
