(NEW YORK) — Free agent defensive end Justin Tuck would like to return to the New York Giants next season, but only if things work out for him and his family.
“It’ll be in the running obviously,” Tuck told ABC Sports Radio on Thursday. “We’ll test the market and see where we are.”
“If I end up in New York it’ll be what’s best for my family and the New York Giants,” he continued.
The two-time Super Bowl champion finished with 11 sacks and 41 tackles in a tough year for the Giants. Tuck was the captain of the 2011 Giants team that beat the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl and also part of the team that knocked off the undefeated Patriots in 2007.
Tuck said both Super Bowl wins were special to him in different ways. “I think the first one because it is the first one,” he explained. “The second one I was the captain and had more of a role to play for that team, I think both of them are very special in that regard.”
The Giants finished 7-9 this season and were 4-4 at MetLife Stadium.
