When Baltimore Ravens defensive lineman Chris Canty retires from professional football, he might want to take a job in scouting because the thundering tackle sure likes to give his opinion on players around the league.
If he’s not talking about Tony Romo‘s problems being ‘mental’ or whining about offensive players complaining about big hits, he’s suggesting that Robert Griffin III isn’t who should be under center for the Washington Redskins.
Earlier in the week, San Francisco 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks suggested that Griffin, who is returning from a devastating ACL injury, shouldn’t be on the field right now as he’s not healthy. Canty took it a step further, suggesting that backup quarterback Kirk Cousins gives the Redskins a better opportunity to win right now:
“I think they should sit him down,” Canty later said. “It’s clear that he is not able to run the offense at the high level that he did during in his rookie year. I think Kirk Cousins gives them the best opportunity to win football games right now.”
By no stretch does Cousins provide a better presence at quarterback than Griffin when healthy, though, it’s not as if Canty doesn’t have an argument here.
