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.
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.
