Reporting Scott Garceau
New Ravens defensive lineman, Chris Canty, joined Scott and Jeremy live from The Ed Block Courage Awards.
The guys discussed what it means to be voted most courageous by his former Giant teammates and what he brings to the Ravens defense.
Chris Canty On being a Raven:
“…I’m excited to be a Baltimore Raven.”
“It’s been a blessing, I’ve never been on a losing team throughout my NFL career. So, I’m just excited to come into another organization with a tradition of excellence & hopefully we can make it back to back Super Bowls.”
On his signature big face mask:
“I’ve been wearing it since my rookie year; I have to wear it in order to play. I’m definitely going to be bringing that here to Baltimore, it’s kind of my trademark…I’ll have that on as well as #99.”
On his leadership abilities:
“We’ve lost a lot of leaders in the locker room this off season with some free agent departures & some retirements, but I am excited to be able to help fill some of that void.”
His opinion of Joe Flacco:
“In my honest opinion I think he’s just starting to come into his own…I just think we are seeing the tip of the iceberg. I really do think he’s going to improve; he’s going through that transition period that Aaron Rodgers went through, that Eli Manning went through & he’s just really starting to come into his own. So, I’m excited about his potential moving forward into the future, I think he’s only going to get better.”
