Canty will not have his 2016 contract option picked up, making him a free agent.
The Ravens save $2 million in salary cap space by letting Canty walk. The 11-year veteran notched 19 tackles and one sack in nine games last season. Canty said that he still wants to play next season and will look to join a team in need of defensive line depth.
Left tackle Eugene Monroe (concussion) and defensive end Chris Canty (calf) are two starters that have been ruled out by the Ravens for the Sunday game against Cincinnati.
The former sustained his head injury in the opener and hasn't played since. The latter played briefly in Week 2 before going down.
Free agent defensive end Chris Canty re-signed with the Ravens on a one-year deal with a team option for another year, reports the New York Daily News. Canty, 32, had 33 tackles, a forced fumble and half a sack last season.
This will be his third year in Baltimore.
Defensive end Chris Canty is set to visit the Seahawks, according to the Baltimore Sun. The visit is scheduled for Thursday.
Canty, 32, is entering his 11th season in the NFL. Over his career he has played for the Cowboys, Giants and Ravens. He has recorded 335 total tackles, 21.5 sacks and five forced fumbles.
Free agent defensive end Chris Canty is scheduled to visit with the Jets on Friday and Saturday, a league source told The Baltimore Sun.
Canty was entering the final year of a three-year, $8 million contract before being released by the Ravens last week.
Canty, who previously played in New York for the Giants from 2009-12, is familiar with Jets coach Todd Bowles and defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers, as both coaches were on the Cowboys' coaching staff when Canty played in Dallas from 2005-08.
The Ravens have terminated the contract of defensive end Chris Canty on Friday, per the team's official website. Baltimore will create $2.66 million in cap space by cutting the 10-year veteran.
"We certainly would not close the door to Chris coming back to us," general manager and executive vice president Ozzie Newsome said in a statement Friday.
Canty, 32, played 26 games (24 starts) in two seasons with the Ravens. The veteran registered 63 tackles (33 solo), 2 1/2 sacks, three forced fumbles and six deflected passes while playing in Baltimore.
The Ravens have placed linebacker Arthur Brown on injured reserve with a thigh injury to make way for defensive lineman Haloti Ngata to be placed on the active roster. Brown was only able to play in four games this season and did not record a tackle.
Other than Brown, the Ravens have listed tackle Eugne Monroe (ankle) and defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan (foot and ankle) as out for Saturday's wild card game against the Steelers.
Monroe has not played since Week 16 against the Texans when he injured his ankle. Defensive end Chris Canty is considered probable.
The Ravens are currently 3-point underdogs against Pittsburgh Saturday.
The Ravens have offered both good and bad news in regard to two defenders that had been deemed questionable for the Sunday game against visiting Cleveland.
The good news is that linebacker Terrell Suggs (back/thigh) has been cleared despite missing an entire week of practice. The bad news is that lineman Chris Canty (ankle/thigh) has been ruled out.
The Ravens have ruled tackle Eugene Monroe (ankle) out for Sunday's regular season finale against the Browns. Defensive lineman Chris Canty (ankle, thigh), outside linebacker Terrell Suggs (thigh, back) and running back Fitzgerald Toussaint (ribs) were deemed questionable.
The Ravens listed the following players as inactive for Sunday’s game against the Texans: Wide receiver Michael Campanaro, cornerback Chris Greenwood, linebacker Arthur Brown, defensive tackle Terrence Cody, guard Gino Gradkowski, offensive lineman Ryan Jensen and defensive tackle Casey Walker.
Defensive lineman Chris Canty (ankle) was listed as questionable, but is active for the game. Canty has not been able to practice all week.
The Ravens are 6 1/2-point favorites.
The Ravens listed defensive lineman Chris Canty (ankle) as questionable for Sunday’s game at Houston.
Canty has not been able to practice all week.
The Ravens listed the following players as probable: Owen Daniels, Will Hill, Jacoby Jones, Anthony Levine, Kelechi Osemele, Bernard Pierce, Daryl Smith and Terrell Suggs.
The Ravens are 5-point favorites.
An ankle problem sidelined Ravens defensive end Chris Canty for the second straight practice Thursday. He has started each of the last six games, but it remains to be seen if he's available Sunday at Houston.
Canty has contributed to 30 tackles and has just a half-sack this year.
Ravens tight end Owen Daniels (knee) and defensive end Chris Canty (wrist) are active for Sunday night's Week 9 matchup with the Steelers.
Daniels underwent arthroscopic knee surgery last week and missed his team's Week 8 matchup but is ready to roll just one week later despite being listed as questionable on Friday's injury report. He has recorded 27 receptions, 275 yards and three touchdowns in five games. Canty was also listed as questionable to play Friday but will suit up for the big divisional clash.
Ravens wide receiver Michael Campanaro (thigh) and cornerback Jimmy Smith (foot) were both officially ruled out for Week 9 against the Steelers, the team announced. Owen Daniels (knee), Chris Canty (wrist) and Yanda Marshal (knee) were deemed questionable.
Meanwhile, Justin Forsett (ankle), Haloti Ngata (shin), Terrell Suggs (neck) and Lardarius Webb (rest) were each labeled probable for Sunday.
The Ravens have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's Week 8 matchup with the Bengals: tight end Owen Daniels (wrist), defensive lineman Chris Canty (wrist), running back Bernard Pierce, cornerback Chykie Brown, linebacker Arthur Brown and offensive linemen Gino Gradkowski and Jah Reid.
Pierce's de-activation comes as a surprise, but he's averaged 2.1 and 2.6 yards per carry in the team's last two games, though he's scored a touchdown in each. The Ravens' goal-line looks could shift to Lorenzo Taliaferro with Pierce unavailable.
Daniels and Canty had already been ruled out, but the Ravens are otherwise very healthy heading into the key matchup against the Bengals. Four players listed as probable are active for the game, including Steve Smith (not injury related), linebacker Daryl Smith (not injury related) and offensive linemen Eugene Monroe (knee) and Kelechi Osemele (knee).
The Ravens have officially ruled Chris Canty (wrist) and Owen Daniels (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Meanwhile, Eugene Monroe (knee), Kelechi Osemele (knee), Daryl Smith (rest) and Steve Smith Sr. (rest) were all labeled probable for Week 8.
Ravens wide receiver Marlon Brown, cornerback Chykie Brown, linebacker Arthur Brown, tight end Ryan Taylor, defensive end Chris Canty, left tackle Eugene Monroe and left guard Kelechi Osemele were ruled inactive Week 7 vs. Atlanta.
As expected, the Ravens have ruled out defensive end Chris Canty for the Sunday game against Atlanta with a wrist injury. The only other certain no-go is defensive end Christo Bilukidi (ankle).
Also unlikely to play are offensive linemen Eugene Monroe and Kelechi Osemele, both of whom are doubtful with knee injuires. Wide receivers Marlon Brown (pelvis) and Kamar Aiken (concussion) and defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan (knee) are probable.
The Ravens have listed OL Kelechi Osemele, LB Arthur Brown, OL Eugene Monroe, DT Timmy Jernigan, DE Chris Canty, WR Marlon Brown and TE Ryan Taylor as inactive Week 6 against the Buccaneers.
Canty and Jernigan had been ruled out prior to the contest. Marlon Brown was listed as doubtful, while Osemele was considered questionable.
The Ravens listed eight players on their final injury report Friday leading up to Week 6 against the Buccaneers.
Defensive lineman Chris Canty (wrist), defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan (knee), and tackle Eugene Monroe (knee) have all been ruled out, while wide receiver Marlon Brown (pelvis) was the only player ruled doubtful on the list.
