The Packers never offered defensive lineman Chris Canty a contract because of medical concerns, a source said.
The Packers brought Canty in for a visit and physical last week. He missed seven games last season because of a knee injury.
Canty's deal with Baltimore is similar to the one former Packers defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins signed with the New York Giants last week. Both players signed three-year deals worth $8 million, and the source said Canty's included $2.8 million in guaranteed pay.
Canty was cut by the New York Giants last month. His new team, like the Packers, plays a 3-4 defense, and Canty at 6-feet-7 and 317 pounds has a prototypical build for a 3-4 defensive end.
