Seahawks Hosting DL Chris Canty For A Visit Thursday

Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports that the Seahawks will host veteran DL Chris Canty for a visit on Thursday.

Canty previously visited with the Jets a few weeks ago, but there hasn’t been any reported news since then regarding the former Giants and Ravens defensive lineman.

The Ravens cut Canty loose in a move that cleared $2.66 million in cap space for Baltimore.

Canty had reportedly been contemplating retirement, but he’s been working out regularly since the season ended and intends to play next year.

This is usually the point in free agency where the Seahawks begin kicking the tires on some potential under-priced veteran defensive linemen. Last year, they signed former Vikings DT Kevin Williams to a contract, so this could be something to keep an eye on for Seattle.

Canty, 32, appeared in 11 games for the Ravens and recorded 33 tackles, a half sack, a forced fumble and two pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 37 defensive end in a 3-4 defense out of 47 qualifying players.
