Opportunity knocks for Tuck

USA Today had a nice piece on Justin Tuck Wednesday.

Here is how Tuck described playing in a Steve Spagnuolo defense.

"Luckily for us, we have a lot of guys who are very, very versatile, and that gives Spags things we can do to offenses," Tuck says. "Our d-ends do it all — we stop the run, we pass rush, we run to the ball, we cover wide receivers, we line up on tight ends and backs, we've lined up as linebackers and blitzed. I played every position last year other than safety, and I'm a defensive lineman."

I thought Tuck was the Giants' best lineman last season -- no offense to Osi Umenyiora or Michael Strahan. I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do without Strahan around.
