The Ravens paid veteran starting defensive end Chris Canty his scheduled $500,000 roster bonus Friday, according to an NFL source.
That likely secures Canty’s roster status for next season, when he’s due a $2 million base salary in the second year of a three-year, $8 million contract he signed last year. That included a $2 million signing bonus as part of $2.8 million in guaranteed money.
During his first season with the Ravens last year, Canty recorded 30 tackles, two sacks and two forced fumbles. He also had four passes defended.
The 6-foot-7, 317-pound former New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys starter started 13 of 15 games played. Canty, 31, had one sack and two forced fumbles against the Buffalo Bills.
