The Baltimore Ravens have signed free agent defensive end Chris Canty, who spent the previous four seasons with the New York Giants.
Canty announced the signing Tuesday on Instagram with a photo of the signed contract, according to the Ravens website.
But it was a tough day for the Super Bowl champions, who lost free agent linebackers Paul Kruger and Dannell Ellerbe. Kruger signed with the AFC North-rival Cleveland Browns and Ellerbe agreed to a five-year deal with Miami.
The 30-year-old Canty was released in February by the Giants. The 6-foot-7, 317-pounder was a starter the last four years in New York, but he missed seven games in 2012 with a knee injury. He finished with 26 tackles and three sacks.
Canty can also play the middle of the line.

Canty won’t fill the Ravens’ big need upfront at nose tackle, but he’ll provide cheap and valuable depth for them. He played well last year before getting hurt and is probably a better player in a 3-4 than the 4-3 he played in with the Giants anyway. He’ll provide valuable and cheap (3 years, 8 million with 2.8 million guaranteed) depth upfront where the Ravens have two youngsters...
Bernard Pollard tweets that the Baltimore Ravens have informed him that he’s being released.
Well Raven Nation it’s been fun. My time in Baltimore is done… Thank you!

The Baltimore Ravens aren't done losing veteran players just yet. Safety Ed Reed, a Raven since being drafted in the first round of the 2002 NFL Draft, is set to visit the Houston Texans on Thursday.

It's nice for Ravens fans to savor the production they may get out of veteran DT/DE Chris Canty...but certainly sad to see a talent like OLB/DE Paul Kruger walk away just when he was hitting his full potential.
