“It’s football — change is inevitable,” Tuck said. “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 added that he has no intention of being the first one to make a move with regards to a contract extension, which could be seen as an indication that Tuck will not be offering the Giants “hometown discount.”
Tuck, 31, has put together a very solid season, despite the Giants overall struggles this year. Pro Football Focus has Tuck rated as the No. 7 4-3 defensive end and he produced 57 tackles, nine sacks, a forced fumble and an interception this season.
We have Tuck listed as the No. 35 player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
