Canty to meet with Chiefs and Titans
looks like Andy is interested in him. Good for him, Canty was a good player for us, he was just way overpaid
GET WELL SOON
I wish him well wherever he ends up... except against us of course.
I suppose it is worth noting that we play the Chiefs this year.
Yet he wasn't even offered a restructured deal.

He and his agent set the market price for himself at 8-9 million a year when he left Dallas and pretty much nobody bit. He initially garnered a lot of interest, but that interest fell through quite quickly. But for some reason, Reese decided to throw him a life jacket for and gave him 7 a year. Not what he was wanting, but still certainly more than he warranted.
Canty was a very solid 5T for the Cowboys. His production, like most 5Ts, isn't accurately portrayed by a stat sheet. Further, people did bite on Canty. He was a hot commodity with teams switching to a 34 defense, namely Green Bay. Reese didn't want to let Canty get offers from Green Bay, whom he was scheduled to visit right after the Giants, so Reese made him a solid offer. Canty repaid us with excellent 2010-2012 campaigns, but also with two bookend injury-plagued seasons.
