Justin Tuck “looking forward” to hitting free agency

Once the Super Bowl is finished, it will be time for talk about free agency to move into the spotlight.

One impending free agent is “looking forward” to seeing what life is like on the open market after nine seasons with the same team. Defensive end Justin Tuck told Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post Thursday that the Giants have asked to meet with him in early February to discuss a return to the team, but his intention is to see what happens when all 32 teams can bid on his services.

“I think I’m a pretty good football player, and I’m pretty sure there will be some interest,” Tuck said.

Heading into free agency without signing an extension with the team would give Tuck a better gauge of his value. That could backfire and leave Tuck to take less money if the rest of the league shows lukewarm interest in him, but vocalizing the intent to do it could also lead the Giants to make him an offer he can’t refuse before the market opens.

Either way, it’s something else to watch in what’s already been a busy offseason after a second straight playoff-less season for the Giants.

    Id like him back, but at his age he’s one of the least of our concerns.

    He’ll join Osi in Atlanta. Book it.
    I’m a lifelong Giants fan, so I don’t say this with any happiness.

    Bye-bye tuck. Nice to see you show up only when you need to get a contract.

    Oakland has 71 million in cap space. He just wants to hear their offer

    He can chase the money, but he shouldn’t be surprised if he ends up on a hopeless team–Browns, Raiders, etc.

    Giants need to start over with these high priced older guys.

    Looking at it form his perspective; he already has 2 rings so for him the money is probably more important at this point in his career. I’d love to have him back at the right price but that price is probably a lot less than he will be offered elsewhere.

    He’ll be a Cowboy, JJ will get this done. The whole defensive line needs help.
