According to multiple reports, the team has informed Canty of that decision. Canty was set to make $2.15 million in salary and bonuses in 2016 and the Ravens will get the same amount of cap space back as a result of moving on.
Canty ended last season on injured reserve with a torn pectoral and missed four games earlier in the season with a calf injury. He had 19 tackles and a sack in the nine starts he did make and was a key part of the team’s run defense.
Canty turned 33 in November and told us on PFT Live last month that he planned to return for a 12th NFL season in 2016. Assuming that remains the case in the wake of his departure from Baltimore, Canty should find a home as part of a defensive line rotation at some point this offseason.
