Justin Tuck Says He Will Test Free Agent Market: Defensive end Justin Tuck, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent on March 11, told The New York Post that he will not re-sign with the Giants before free agency begins.
“I will see what the market is for me,” Tuck said. “I’ve never been in this situation before, and it’s a great opportunity for myself. I would be doing myself a disservice if I didn’t see what the market is, and I will.”
Tuck did say he will extend the Giants the courtesy of sitting down with them in February.
“We will sit down in a couple of weeks and see what happens, but obviously, the Giants are going to do what’s best for the Giants, and vice versa with me and my family,” said Tuck. “I understand where they’re coming from and what obstacles they have to overcome this offseason. There’s no guarantee, and that’s obvious. It’s a business, and (I) understand both sides of it.”
“I’m a pretty good football player,” Tuck said, “and I’m pretty sure there will be some interest in a pretty good football player.”
