Giants | Chris Canty thinks highly of Jason Pierre-Paul

Wed, 27 Jun 2012 07:43:17 -0700

New York Giants DL Chris Canty said teammate DL Jason Pierre-Paul has the potential to be as good as former NFL DL Reggie White. "There is really nobody in the league right now that you can compare him to," Canty said. "The only person that kind of sticks out where you can compare him to - and I can't believe I am saying this - but he reminds me a lot of Reggie White. His ability to play all those different positions and to impact the football game the way he does, he is an unbelievable talent."

Fri, 04 Aug 2006 18:49:30 -0700

Larry O'Rourke, of The Morning Call, reports Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said he still feels cheated by not being able to sign DL Reggie White's paychecks. White will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Saturday, Aug. 5. Lurie, who bought the team in 1995, said, "When I first got the call that the Eagles were available, the very first thought I had was, 'That's Reggie White's franchise.' You get the thought of the great fans, rabid city, but Reggie White - 'That's Reggie White's franchise.' It was a shock when he died (in December 2004). ... I'm very proud he was here. I feel so frustrated that I bought the team (two years) after he left, (but) we were able to keep up a wonderful relationship right up to the end."
