Chris Canty will be with the Baltimore Ravens organization in 2013. But he also wanted to play for a couple of other teams, including the Carolina Panthers.
Unfortunately for the Panthers, they couldn’t afford Canty’s price.
“They needed a lot of players. I think the direction they wanted to go was to get as many quality players as they could at a bargain price,” Canty said. “Quite frankly, I wasn’t going to be able to come in and play for what they would have liked, what they could have afforded.”
Canty is now signed to a 3 year, $8 million deal with the Ravens. The Panthers were not in a position to make that kind of deal.
