Not a marquee name, but you can't ever have too much depth on the Dline.




East Rutherford, NJ - The Giants today signed free agent defensive tackle Kendrick Clancy, a former third-round draft choice who played his first five seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers. A 6-1, 305-pounder, Clancy has played in 52 career games with four starts. During his first four years with the Steelers, Clancy played for Giants defensive coordinator Tim Lewis, who then held the same position with Pittsburgh.


DT Kendrick Clancy played under Giants defensive coordinator Tim Lewis while Lewis held the same position in Pittsburgh (2000-2003).

Clancy was released by the Steelers on Sept. 5, 2004 and was resigned on October 20, after nose tackle Casey Hampton suffered a season-ending knee injury. Clancy played in the final eight regular season games and Pittsburgh’s two postseason games. He had six tackles in limited action.


Clancy joined the Steelers as a third-round draft choice out of Mississippi in 2000, the 72nd overall pick. He played in nine games as a rookie and finished with five tackles (four solo).


The next year he competed for playing time with Hampton, the team’s No. 1 draft choice, and played in all 16 games with four starts. His first career start was against Tom Coughlin’s Jacksonville Jaguars on September 9. Clancy finished that season with 13 tackles (seven solo), and his only career interception, against Tennessee in a Monday night game on October 29.


Clancy played in seven games in 2002 and 12 in 2003.


At Mississippi, Clancy was a third-team All-America selection by The Sporting News and The Football News as a senior in 1999, when he was also an All-Southeastern Conference first-team choice. He had 49 tackles, seven sacks and 18 tackles for losses.


Clancy was born on Sept. 17, 1978. He and his wife, Patricia, have three daughters: Jakenya (4/5/97), Markali (8/19/98) and Haley (5/14/01).
