NFL Network Reports That Chris Canty Signs With New York Giants

Vincent JacksonCorrespondent IJune 14, 2016

NFL Network is reporting that the New York Giants have signed defensive end Chris Canty to a six-year, $42 million deal with $17.25 million in guaranteed money.

The Giants have gotten deeper on the defensive side of the ball, a strength of their 2007 title run and a weakness down the stretch in 2008, which ended in a Wild Card loss to Philadelphia.

He will possibly play defensive tackle, given the presence of defensive ends Justin Tuck, Mathias Kiwanuka, and Osi Umenyiora. 

Canty will rotate with Fred Robbins, newly-signed Rocky Bernard and Barry Coefield.

Coach Tom Coughlin says that Kiwanuka will remain at defensive end in 2009, shifting from outside linebacker after Umenyiora landed on injured reserve in August.
