"It's football -- change is inevitable," Tuck said, per the New York Post. "It's a business, and next year I'll either be here trying to put some more trophies in the trophy room or I'll be somewhere else trying to put a trophy in the trophy room."
The free agent-to-be won two Super Bowl trophies in his nine seasons with the Giants. The 30-year-old has been New York's best defensive lineman this season, racking up 9 sacks -- 7.5 in the past five games.
Tuck said he would "love to return" but didn't sound inclined to give a "hometown discount," according to the Post. If it is his final game in Big Blue, Tuck hopes to go out victorious.
"Hopefully, jubilation over a win," he said. "After that, it will be onto the next stage, finding out where I'll be employed next season. I don't know when the decision is going to be."
