Justin Tuck is heading out west.

The free agent defensive lineman signed a two year $11 million deal with the Oakland Raiders, ending his nine-year stint with the New York Giants.

Tuck reportedly wanted to remain in with the Giants, but the two sides could not work out a deal that would keep Tuck in the big apple.

The 30-year old two-time pro bowler was a key cog in the the Giants' Super Bowl victories in 2007 and 2011.

The Raiders are hoping Tuck can help replace the production of Lamarr Houston, who signed a $35 million contract with the Chicago Bears this week, after leading the Raiders in sacks last year. 

Tuck had 11 sacks last year with the Giants, and 60.5 during his nine-year run in New York.
