Justin Tuck ready for potential end of Giants tenure

Defensive end Justin Tuck has said more than once this season that he would like to return to the Giants in 2014, but the impending free agent said he didn’t want any negotiating to go on during the season.

That leaves the work for this offseason and it leaves open the possibility that things don’t work out for a return to the team that Tuck has helped to a pair of Super Bowl titles. Tuck said Thursday he might be a little teary-eyed when walking off the field on Sunday, but that his feelings for the Giants won’t lead him to make the first move in the offseason and that he won’t be offering any discounts coming off a nine-sack season that featured a more productive Tuck than we’ve seen in the last few seasons.

“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.”

Change is especially inevitable for losing teams featuring rosters bloated with expensive veterans. Tuck turns 31 in March, so the Giants will have to weigh the chances that he repeats 2013 against the chances that the 2011-2012 Tuck returns once he signs his name to a new deal.

    Dude’s been living off 1st SB win over Pats for years now…the truth is that at this point he is very average…but of course he will want big $$ – which he is definitely not worth.

    Please do not re-sign him unless it’s a 2-year, $5M deal… tops.

    I wouldn’t mind seeing this dude in another jersey. Or an Eagles jersey.

    Actually he has been living off two, 2, Super Bowls over the Pats, 2 NFC Championships and a bunch of playoff road wins. Also he makes Subway commercials.

    4 of his 9 sacks were in ONE GAME!!!
    Hasn’t performed for 2 seasons now.
    Let him go and use the money on another position.

    Wouldn’t surprise me. An overpaid veteran past his prime is right up the raiders ally. I do not see where Reggie is so highly thought of, just a creepy looking guy with an orange Afro.
