After a rough start to the league year, the Ravens are on the board in free agency, bringing in former Giants defensive lineman Chris Canty.

Canty has already signed his contract and posted a picture of it on Instagram. Although Canty didn’t post the financials, Albert Breer of NFL Network reports that Canty gets $8 million over three years, with $2.8 million guaranteed.

The 6-foot-7, 317-pound Canty started nine games for the Giants last season and recorded three sacks. For a Ravens defense that lost defensive end Paul Kruger and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe today, the arrival of Canty will be viewed as good news.

Canty is the No. 61 player in our Free Agent Hot 100.
