Tuck was a third round pick by the Giants in the 2005 NFL Draft, where he spent the first nine years of his career. He signed with the Raiders as a free agent prior to the 2014 season, but only played in five games this year after suffering a torn pectoral muscle.

He made the Pro Bowl twice (2008, 2010) in his career, being named a first-team All-Pro in 2008. Tuck also won two Super Bowls (XLII, XLIV) with the Giants, and is the only player in NFL history with multiple sacks in multiple Super Bowls.

For his career, the 32-year-old Tuck racked up 550 tackles, 22 forced fumbles, and 66.5 sacks, including four seasons with at least 10 sacks.
