Justin Tuck Not Interested In Offering The Giants A “Hometown Discount?”

According to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post, Giants DE Justin Tucksounded Thursday like someone about to play his final game” with his current the team.

“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.

It is conceivable that the Giants would allow Tuck to part via free agency given that they do have Jason Pierre-Paul, Mathias Kiwanuka, and Damontre Moore at defensive end.

We have Tuck listed as the No. 35 player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
