"I was quoted as saying Vick was the fastest player I'd ever seen with the ball in his hands," Tuck told The Star-Ledger on Thursday. "I don't know. I'm going to have to back up on that now, because RG is something special."
Vick ran a 4.33-second 40-meter dash at the 2001 NFL Scouting Combine. Griffin hit the 4.38 mark.
"I would like to see a race between those two. I really would," Tuck said. "A young Vick and RG now? That would be insane to watch. I'd pay to see it."
Tuck and the Giants didn't have to deal with a young Vick twice a year, though. They'll be chasing Griffin for years.
