Giants Made Offer To Justin Tuck

While defensive end Justin Tuck will have his opportunity to test free agency, the Giants have made him an offer in the hopes the Super Bowl winning pass rusher will return, reports Jordan Rannan of NJ.com. It is believed the offer was made some point during the last week, but no deal was struck between the two parties.

Tuck had 11 sacks last year, and is a part of a free agent class at a position that includes Michael Bennett, Jared Allen, Michael Johnson, Lamarr Houston, and Everson Griffen.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk writes that at this point, it is unclear if the offer makes the Giants serious contenders to retain Tuck’s services in 2014, or if it is just an empty offer so the team can claim they tried to keep the 31-year-old defensive end.

Tuck’s agent stated that his client is the most complete player at the position in this free agency class, and in our own Luke Adams’ preview of the top 25 free agents, Tuck was among eight players who “just missed the cut.”
