Newly signed Ravens defensive lineman Chris Canty joined the Norris & Davis show to talk about the recent Ravens moves, and the chances the Ravens can repeat with a lot of player turnover.
Ed asked Chris why he chose the Ravens having already won a Superbowl in New York. Chris said it’s simple he wants to win another ring and feels the Ravens are a first class organization and will get back to the top.
Steve asked Chris if the Ravens will be able to overcome all the turnover on the roster this off-season. Chris said that when he won a Superbowl with the Giants they lost 4 players the following season, and that yes you can win despite having a lot of new pieces.
Steve asked Chris if he was surprised to see Ed Reed leave for Houston. Chris said that while he was excited to have the chance top play with Ed Reed, he understands the business side of things and is never surprised to see players go to new teams.
Ed asked Chris what he brings to the Ravens. Chris said he brings leadership and an ability to make players around him better. Saying that his play on the field will speak for itself, and that he will be a force along the defensive line.
Steve asked Chris if he thought the team would have enough time to gel all the new pieces together. Chris said that with OTA’s and training camp there is more than enough time for the team to come together and be ready to go out and win come September.
Steve then asked Chris about when he was with the Giants last year facing the Ravens and how tough it was to game-plan for the Ravens offense. Chris said it is a very dynamic offense with play-makers on the outside, but that the most difficult thing was trying to find a way to stop Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce offering only one bit of advice for opposing defenses…..”good luck”
Chris also commented on the new NFL rule against offensive players lowering their helmets and using them to deliver blows. Chris said he was excited about the new rule and it was nice to see offensive players getting rules put against them since its been happening to defensive players for years.
