“We all have been in situations where we wish we could take some things back,” Tuck said. “Osi’s a smart guy, he knows what he’s doing. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see a quicker end to this than people think. But again, that’s just me being optimistic.”
The 28-year-old defensive end has agreed to terms on a new contract with the Giants, according to a source familiar with the situation. The source said that it’s a two-year deal with incentives and could be signed tomorrow if Kiwanuka passes a physical.

“Justin Tuck really wants Plaxico Burress to return to the Giants. And that’s coming from the captain of the New York Giants. Tuck said check out the Giants record when Plaxico shot himself. The answer: 10-1.” - @NYPost_Schwartz

"As the coach of the Jets, give him credit. He has turned the dial up on excitement for Jets football. But, anybody can sit here and say, “Well, we’re gonna win this year.” And then the next year comes and say, “We’re gonna win this year.” And then the next year comes and say, “We’re gonna win this year.” I mean, give me a break.
I root for the Jets when they’re not playing us. I love to see New Yorkers do well. But, the fact of the matter is, we’ll never be a stepchild to the Jets. We’ll always own this city, in a football sense. But in a sports sense itself, no one can compete with the Yankees. So, who really cares?” - NY Giants’ Justin Tuck, today on SNY’s Daily News Live.
“I’m gonna say this and this is gonna be the last time I comment on anything Rex Ryan says. The last time I checked, I have a Super Bowl ring and he doesn’t, so if he’s proud of coming up short, I guess he should be proud of that.”
Justin Tuck fired back at Rex Ryan, who said in his book that the Jets are a “better team” than the Giants and a “big brother” to Big Blue.
Rex: "I know it’s going to (tick) off Giants fans, but … we are the better team. We are the big brother," Ryan wrote. He also wrote that the Jets are "going to remain the better team for the next 10 years. Whether you like it or not, those are the facts and that’s what’s going to happen."
