Read that headline again. $6 mil of it guaranteed. Yes, that Colin Cole. Talk about "Just a Guy," holy hell. Decent player, solid guy coming off the bench, an OK motor, not very strong for a guy his size...Twenty-one. Million. Dollars. Wow. I'll bet you don't here a thing about Cole for the next 5 years. Nothing.
GB was flirting with DE Chris Canty, who Matt thought was the old CB from Kansas State. He visited the Giants and took their guaranteed $17 mil ($42 mil total) without visiting the Pack. I guess Green Bay wouldn't guarantee a contract without visiting first so Canty took the "sure thing" contract from New York. This is also a semi-curious signing. Seems like a lot of dough, he's played in a 3-4 since high school, will now be a 4-3 DT in NY, and just became the highest paid D-Lineman on the Giants - more than Tuck, Umenyora (ha, spell check suggests "Omnivore"), and Kiwanuka ("Kiwanis"). Would have been nice, but don't worry, we've got Justin Harrell!
CNNSI's Peter King was with Canty's agent during his slim time as a free agent. Describes how he became a Giant.
