Ravens cut defensive end Chris Canty
Canty was inactive for five games last season and had three games without a tackle. He finished with 33 tackles and a half-sack in 11 starts.
The 32-year-old Canty intends to extend his 10-year NFL career. He says, ''I am going to continue to prepare to play again and will explore other possibilities to play.''
Canty played four years in Dallas and won a Super Bowl during a four-year run with the New York Giants. In Baltimore, the 32-year-old was an asset on the field and in the locker room.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh says Canty added maturity and leadership to the team.
Canty says, ''I am very proud to be a Raven.''
