Justin Tuck prepared for end of Giants tenure


Longtime New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck’s contract expires at the end of this year. Tuck has repeatedly expressed a desire to return to the team where he has won a pair of Super Bowl titles, but he understands it is a business and the two sides could part ways. As a 31-year old veteran, he could be headed towards free agency.

“It’s football — change is inevitable,” Tuck said, via the New York Post. “It’s a business, and next year I’ll either be here trying to put some more trophies in the trophy room or I’ll be somewhere else trying to put a trophy in the trophy room.”

Tuck is trying to avoid the situation for now, letting the powers at be handle it.

“I’ll let the process come to me,” Tuck said. “That’s why [general manager] Jerry Reese gets paid a lot of money and my agent gets paid a lot of money. They’ll figure it out. I’m sure they’ll talk, if they haven’t already.”
