Dallas DE Chris Canty is a big defensive end who can play in a 3-4. He's an unrestricted free agent and might be a perfect fit in Green Bay's new 3-4 defense. He's going to hit free agency because Dallas isn't meeting his contract demands. But Cowboy fans aren't exactly begging the team to resign him:
WTF are we suppose to make a run at the SUPERBOWL! YES THE SUPERBOWL! With Sage Rosenfels are our guy? Who the f is Sage Rosenfels? A perennial backup? Come on we’re trying to upgrade. If they seriously think Rosenfels is the guy it will be a long and depressing offseason. Say it aint so.
Not much cap savings, but there's no doubt that this move is long overdue. I have few rules in life. Here's one of them: "Whenever an athlete's name can be prefaced with 'The Corpse Formerly Known As,' it's high time for him to not play for my favorite team anymore." Don't confuse that rule with another of my eerily similar maxims; namely, the one that goes "If a DE has one (1) more sack than a dead man in three (3) years, he earns the qualifier 'The Corpse Formerly Known As (Insert Name).'"
