EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Chris Canty took a verbal swing at former teammate Justin Tuck on Wednesday, three days after Tuck threatened to punch in the mouth anyone who turns on New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin.

“Justin needs to worry about punching opposing offenses in the mouth,” Canty said, in an interview on NFL Network. “The way you show that you have your coach’s back is by going out there on that football field and performing.”

Canty spent the past four seasons with the Giants, before being cut by the team back in February. He’s now starting for the Baltimore Ravens, with two sacks in the first four weeks of the season.

The Giants have just four sacks as a team, tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the lowest total in the league. Tuck has half a sack.

Canty was also asked about Giants safety Antrel Rolle's comments earlier this week, in which he questioned the confidence of some of his teammates.

“There are probably guys in that locker room that probably lack the confidence that they can win football games, but as we know confidence comes from demonstrated performance,” Canty said. “So they just have to go out there and win a football game to show themselves that they can overcome the adversity in that game and be successful as a team.”
