THIS IS EPISODE 540 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Chris Canty played 11 seasons in the NFL with the Cowboys, Giants and Ravens. He was selected in the fourth round (132nd overall) of the 2005 NFL Draft by Dallas and head coach Bill Parcells. He was an immediate contributor to the Cowboys defense and was part of a rookie draft class that included DeMarcus Ware, Marcus Spears, Marion Barber and Jay Ratliff.
He played four seasons with the Cowboys and then signed with the Giants in 2009, where he helped his team to a Super Bowl victory in 2011 when New York beat New England in Super Bowl XLVI. After the 2012 season, he signed with the Ravens and played three seasons in Baltimore before retiring after the 2015 season.
In college, Canty was a standout performer at the University of Virginia and was a two-time All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection, and led all conference defensive linemen in tackles as a sophomore and junior.
Currently, Canty is working at ESPN Radio in New York City as the co-host of “DiPietro, Canty & Rothenberg” on 98.7 FM ESPN New York.
On today’s podcast, we talk to Canty about winning a Super Bowl for New York City, being a radio host during a pandemic, growing up the son of a preacher, and how his faith was tested as he overcame the odds to become an NFL player.
