The most complete defensive end in the free-agent class (according to his agent) may be completing his career in New York, after all. Or at least continuing it.
Per a league source, Tuck’s exploration of the market currently is causing him to lean toward remaining with the Giants.
One team, we’re told, was willing to pay Tuck $3 million per year. For that amount elsewhere, Tuck is inclined to stay in New York.
The question becomes whether anyone else would pay Tuck more. Sure, he turns 31 this month. But he had 11.0 sacks last season. With the market nudging toward $9 million per year, it’s hard to imaging Tuck not getting more than a third of that.
