New York Giants DE Justin Tuck is prepped to test the free agency market for the first time in his career. He will not re-sign with the Giants before he is set to become a free agent and he will test out the waters, but he won’t rule out signing back with the team.

“I will see what the market is for me,” Tuck said during a Super Bowl promotional appearance. “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.” – NY Post

Tuck will be 31 in late March, but he did have one of his best seasons as a pro last year. He compiled 11 sacks and played in all 16 games.

He will be one of the best pass rushers available on the market, but teams are looking for more youth from their pass rushers in free agency. Veterans like Dwight Freeney and John Abraham didn’t get much love in free agency and had to sign toward the end of the offseason. Let’s see f Tuck can have a little different fortune this offseason.

Where will Justin Tuck land in free agency?

    I since Tuck wants to land on a team with hopes making a Super Bowl run. Then you have to ask the question Tucks cap is 6,150,000.00 and Jason Pierre Paul is a FA and with a cap hit of 3,561,000. Difference is Tuck will be 31 and Paul will be 26.
    Coming to the Panthers would work in a rotation role with Hardy and Charles Johnson.
    So I think Greg Hardy has a lot to think about with DE’s hitting FA like Tuck and Peppers. Then the Group of talented college draft picks. IMO
