  • NY Giants Keep Or Dump: Chris Canty

    http://www.giants101.com/2013/01/23/...p-chris-canty/

    Excerpt: "After leading the team to their second Super Bowl in five seasons, the New York Giants defensive line crashed back down to earth in 2012. Not only did Big Blue's trio of Pro Bowl caliber defensive ends fail to wreak havoc on opposing offenses, but the middle of the defense was about as soft as they come. Although defensive tackle Chris Canty showed considerable improvement in 2011, his injury plagued 2012 campaign has many wondering if he will be on the roster next season.

    For the right price, Canty is worth keeping around. He is 6'7" and 317 pounds. His size alone makes teams account for his presence in the middle of the defense. However, Canty's salary cap hit for 2013 is $8.2 million. If the Giants decide to cut him, they can recoup $6.5 million of salary cap room. Given Canty's history of back injuries and lack of production in 2012, his salary is currently above his market value. At the very least, Jerry Reese should look into restructuring Canty's contract to portray his overall value to the team.

    However, it's not like the Giants have any bona fide replacements waiting in the wings either." Read more...

      LOL Even though he was injured in 2012, he still played pretty well when he played.

                If we cut a player and still have a $5M hit under the CAP, what's the point?

                    According to the article, the contract is 8.2mm, and cutting him would clear 6.5mm

                    I like Canty, but that's a pretty heavy cap hit....would much rather see them use that to attact a top-end linebacker.

                      Ask to restructure, if not then bye bye.

                        Looks like the Giants might have to eat some of these contracts and bring back a few of these underachieving players or it's gonna be cap hit hell in Jersey. I'm glad I'm not in charge.

                          at first i was gonna write "keep him" and not even think twice...but then I read the article, and we can recoup 6.5 mil to the cap by releasing him??? id release him then try to re-sign him cheap...6.5 back to the cap goes a long way with how that money can be allotted...wow, the 1 high priced guy we can actually cut and save a lot of cap room happens to be the guy i vehemently defended and supported on here...

                            seeing as 8.2 is owed to him, and by cutting him we would get back 6.5 towards our cap, i'd assume its simple math; 8.2-6.5 equals 1.7 million?

                              Yes, Confirmed. 6.5 mil extra in cap space for 2013 and 6.75 mil extra for 2014's cap if released.
