Panthers beat writer Darin Gantt suggests that the Patriots might be clearing cap room with an eye on making a run at Carolina franchise player Julius Peppers.

Gantt admits it's a conspiracy theory, but notes that New England gained considerable space with Saturday's Matt Cassel trade. Peppers wants to play OLB in a 3-4 and the Pats need one of those after trading Mike Vrabel. The Pats have ample ammo with the 23rd, 34th, 47th and 58th picks in the draft.

But their QBs are garbage. Sage is a turnover machine. And Tjack cant read a Defense to save a life.

From the jump Ive been saying that Canty wants too much to be a depth player. I know the intentions were to play him at DT in the 4-3 but hes purely a 3-4 end in my eyes.

Packers makes sense, their front 7 could be serious.. I think Kampman will boss out as a 3-4 end even more then he did in the 4-3 (which is saying something), Barnett & Hawk on the inside with drafting a big body like Raji out of BC & their Front 7 will be hella scary.... Packers need to blitz their LBs more, vanilla a.ss D schemes should be deaded with Capers there hes a solid pickup & a 3-4 suits them
Kampman gonna be playing more at LB

Chris Canty and The New York Giants are Close...

The Giants can say they're serious about signing Chris Canty all they want. But the real test of how serious they are can be measured in dollars.

Canty's agent Brad Blank told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel this afternoon he and the Giants have exchanged proposals.

Blank just wrote to me in an e-mail minutes ago the Giants have given him a proposal and he's about to send his counter offer.

A good sign? Maybe. I guess it all depends on how far apart said proposals are. And that we don't know yet.

3:08 p.m. UPDATE Someone in the know said the gap is in guarantees and structure and that the sides are close on overall value. Not sure how far apart on guarantees, but that sounds like a gulf that could be bridged. We'll see.

More on Canty to the Giants developments:

It’s starting to look like before the end of the day, Cowboys defensive lineman Chris Canty will be a Giant. “There’s a chance,” his agent, Brad Blank, told me a few minutes ago.

And that just can’t be good news for veteran defensive tackle Fred Robbins.

Something’s got to give, as several NFL sources have told me in the last few hours, if the Giants sign the 26-year-old Canty, and it appears the 31-year-old Robbins might be it. Nobody can imagine the Giants sticking with all four veteran defensive tackles in a rotation that would include Canty, Robbins, Barry Cofield and the newly signed Rocky Bernard.

For one thing, it would be ridiculously expensive — about $12.5 million between the four of them, a.ssuming Canty gets his $6 million per year and Bernard, as reported elsewhere, got about $4 million per year (Robbins is due $2 million in 2009 and Cofield is due $530,000). For another thing, while the depth is nice, playing time would become an issue. At most they’d average 20 snaps per player, per game (remember, DE Justin Tuck will figure into the DT rotation on passing downs), and they don’t need to spend that much money on what essentially would become a group of part-time players.

That’s why it was so hard to believe, at first, that the Giants would go hard after Canty. But apparently they are. In the last two hours, Canty’s agent, Brad Blank, has confirmed that he and the Giants are well into their contract talks. He got an offer from the Giants, sent them a counter-propsal, and now he’s awaiting a response from them.

According to one source familiar with the talks, the two sides are within striking distance of each other, though they still have a little bit of work to do on how much Canty will get up front. I haven’t yet nailed down any numbers, but sources around the league — away from the negotiations — keep throwing out that $6 million per year average.

If the Giants and Canty can’t work out a deal, Blank said his client will hope a flight to Green Bay, where the Packers have been getting more and more interested by the day. The Seattle Seahawks had a visit with Canty planned for Monday, but they canceled earlier today, Blank said, after they signed former Packers DT Colin Cole to a five-year, $21 million deal with $5 million guaranteed.

That’s an average of $4.2 million for Cole, by the way, and he’s not in Canty’s class. So $6 million per year might end up being a low guess.

The Giants don’t have to cut Robbins if they sign Canty — not for the cap room, anyway — but given the financial commitment it would seem clear that Canty and Bernard would end up the Giants starters. And, given his age (24) and salary, Cofield likely isn’t going anywhere. That leaves the aging Robbins, who’ll be 32 in March and who suffered through shoulder and hand injuries last season that dramatically limited his effectiveness as the season went on. Six weeks into the season he had 5 ½ sacks and looked to be on his way to the Pro Bowl.

But in the final 10 games he had no sacks, missed two games with injuries, and then he had to have knee surgery after the season, too.

He’s not getting any younger and, since he’s entering the final year of the six-year, $20 million contract he signed in 2009, the Giants would actually save $1.3 million in cap space if they cut him.

Again, something has got to give because Canty is getting very close to becoming a Giant.

Also, a source said RB Derrick Ward is telling people the Giants have turned down his proposal for a multi-year deal worth $3 million per season. The Giants are apparently not willing to go that high.
4:00 p.m. UPDATE I forgot to mention Seattle signed DT Colin Cole away from the Packers. Paul Needell reports Blank told him Seattle is out of the running for Canty.

EDIT after Ric's post:

Nevermind, fu*k! Looks like the Giants going to pick him up now.

Apparently the Seahawks just signed some DT from the Packers...

So Canty's scheduled trip out there has been canceled.

DT Cole picks Seahawks over returning to Packers

One of the Green Bay Packers’ big offseason priorities was re-signing DT Colin Cole. But early Sunday morning, Cole wound up signing a five-year, $21 million contract that includes $5 million guaranteed with the Seattle Seahawks. Now Cole will follow the same path that former Packers coach Mike Holmgren once did.

With Cole out of the picture, Green Bay has stepped up its efforts to sign Dallas Cowboys free agent DE Chris Canty, who is deciding between the Packers and New York Giants. Canty is expected to make his decision shortly, but Cole already has. He opted for Seattle over Green Bay.


looks like canty isn't going to the seahawks.
