Justin Tuck Will Retire As A New York Giant.
Once a Giant, Always A Giant. Justin Tuck announced this afternoon with Big Blue Kickoff Live that he intends to sign a one-day contract at some point this year and retire as a New York Giant. Tuck, my favorite player in Giants history, had a big impact on Super Bowl XLII and XLVI against the New England Patriots. Tuck recorded 328 total tackles and 60.5 sacks as a New York Giant. He also intercepted 3 passes and returned one for a touchdown during his 9 year career with Big Blue.
You could always spot Tuck on the field with his scary looking facemask. The defensive end spent his final two years of his career with the Oakland Raiders, although he missed 16 out of his 32 games as a Raider. Tuck’s teammate, Osi Umenyoria, retired as a Giants this past offseason by signing a one-day contract with the Giants. You can definitely be sure that Tuck will be honored at some point next season and receive a standing ovation by the fans at MetLife Stadium.
