"I will see what the market is for me," Tuck said. "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."

Tuck's recent comments are a change of tune since the end of the Giants' 7-9 season when he said he would "love to retire as a Giant".
Despite the team's lack of success, Tuck had one of his best years statistically as a pro in 2013, recording 11 sacks in 16 games. Tuck had nine sacks in the two previous seasons combined while being plagued by injuries. Even though Tuck bounced back nicely in 2013, he may not garner any big offers from potential suitors in free agency. Tuck will turn 31 in late March and several talented pass rushers over the age of 30 had to settle for cheap, short-term deals last offseason.
