Ravens Most Underrated Signing

Chris McGrath

The Ravens made a ton of moves this off season but one of the more under the radar moves was the signing of defensive lineman Chris Canty.

Last season the Baltimore Ravens defensive line was a mess. They gave more rushing yards then they have in over a decade and dealt with injuries throughout the season.

Baltimore made several signings to ensure that the defensive line would improve in 2013. They brought in Marcus Spears from the Dallas Cowboys and drafted Branden Williams in the third round of the 2013 draft. Also, in what may have been the teams most underrated move of their entire off season, the Ravens brought in defensive lineman Chris Canty from the New York Giants.

Standing 6'7" and weighing in at 317 lbs Canty is a scary sight for any offensive lineman. Not to mention that he has Super Bowl experience from his time in New York, So far in his short time with the Ravens he has shown great leadership qualities and should become a staple in the new look Ravens defense.

Although the Ravens brought in a big name defender in pass rusher Elvis Dumervil and a very versatile safety in Michael Huff, Canty may turn out to be one of the most important signings the team made. He can play every position on the line and excels in both rushing the passer and stopping the run. Combining Canty with perennial Pro Bowler Haloti Ngata, Spears and rookie Brandon Williams could return Baltimore's defense to their once elite status.
