"At the time -- a lot of people don't know this -- I was thinking about retiring at the beginning of that year," Tuck said on the Breaking Big Blue podcast ahead of the Giants' announcement that they will celebrate the 10th anniversary of that 2011 team this season. "I had a lot of things going on outside of football that I felt needed my attention, that needed more than just me being a football player at the time. That was probably just a little bit of me feeling sorry for myself, to be honest with you."

Giants news, 6/25: Evan Engram, Xavier McKinney’s grudge, Justin Tuck, more

Kadarius Toney of the Giants got mixed reviews, which is not unexpected or inaccurate. When Toney was on the field you could see the talent that made him a first-round pick. He was explosive and has the ability to change directions and accelerate at a moment's notice. The only problem is we didn't see it often. He couldn't find a cleat that fit at rookie minicamp, skipped OTAs because his contract wasn't signed (an extremely unusual approach) and then had a family emergency during minicamp. The Giants better hope this isn't a sign of things to come.

The New York Giants finished the 2020 season with 40 total sacks, ranking 12th in the NFL in the category. With Carter Coughlin, a seventh-round draft pick from last season, and Jabaal Sheard, a practice squad player from Jacksonville, playing significant snaps in the absence of Oshane Ximines and Lorenzo Carter, it was a miracle the Giants were so productive.
