A third-round draft choice from Notre Dame in 2005, Tuck played in 127 regular-season games with 90 starts in nine Giants seasons. He was a defensive catalyst on the teams that won Super Bowl XLII and Super Bowl XLVI, a two-time Pro Bowler, and four-time team captain. Tuck was credited with more than 500 tackles. His 60.5 sacks are officially the sixth-highest total in franchise history. Tuck also played in 10 postseason games. He had 5.5 sacks, including two sacks of Tom Brady in each of the Super Bowl victories, when a dominant defensive line was one of the vital components of the Giants' success.
