Jacksonville Jaguars Schedule Meeting With Free Agent Chris Canty
The new Jacksonville Jaguars regime led by general manager Dave Caldwell has said numerous times that they would like to build this team through the draft, but that does not mean that they are going to avoid adding a useful piece in free agency if the price is right.
While the Jaguars will likely avoid talking to any of the top-tier free agents this off-season, they are going to be in the market for value-priced veterans who can contribute in the short term, as this team works through its rebuilding process. So, it should come as no surprise that the Jaguars have scheduled a meeting with former New York Giants defensive lineman Chris Canty.
Canty has spent his last four seasons with the Giants as a defensive tackle in a 4-3 defense, but prior to that, he played as a 3-4 defensive end with the Dallas Cowboys. Canty’s ability to play several different positions along the defensive line makes him an excellent fit for the new defensive scheme the Jaguars will be running with new head coach Gus Bradley. His likely fit with the Jaguars would be as a strong-side, five-technique defensive end that would be counted on to stop the run and generate a pass rush.
However, Canty could also play inside as a three-technique defensive tackle and be counted on to generate pass rushes from inside on passing downs.
The Jaguars are not the only team interested in Canty’s services, however. He has already visited the Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans and has also scheduled a visit with the Green Bay Packers.
