Mike Garafolo of USA Today reports that free agent DL Chris Canty has lined up visits with the Packers and the Jaguars following the NFL combine.
Canty can play in both 3-4 and 4-3 defensive schemes , which is most likely why both the Packers and Jaguars have interest in him. Canty recently visited the Chiefs and Titans who could also be in play. The fact that he’s available now probably helps his marketability.
We have Canty listed as the No. 58 best available player in our Top 100 Free Agents list.
Canty is reportedly “continuing to explore his options” and has already visited with the Chiefs, so it’s clear that he has options available to him.
It was reported yesterday that he doesn’t have any other visits currently scheduled, but that obviously could change in the coming days.
Garafolo adds that other teams could schedule visits with the free agent as well.
Canty, 30, was rated as the No. 19 best defensive tackle by Pro Football Focus, mainly due to his ability to play the run. He could draw interest from either 4-3 or 3-4 defensive teams due to the fact that he has experience in both systems.
As for the Titans, they could some additional defensive line depth and Canty would give them a serviceable player in the middle, which would help them get better at defending the run.
