As many fans hoped he would, defensive end Justin Tuck will sign a one-day contract and retire as a member of the New York Giants. His retirement will officially take place on Friday, per a report that came first from Dan Graziano of ESPN.

Tuck, drafted in the third round in 2007, was a key contributor to two Super Bowl-winning teams during nine seasons with the Giants. He compiled 60.5 sacks with the Giants, four times reaching double digits. He became the team's defensive captain during his final few seasons in New York. He made the Pro Bowl twice and was an All-Pro in 2008. Tuck is fourth all-time on the franchise list for most quarterback sacks.

Tuck played the final two years of his career with the Oakland Raiders. He played only five games in 2015 due to injuries and announced this offseason that he would retire after 11 years as a player.

Your thoughts, Giants fans?
