Justin Tuck knows that Sunday could be his final game for the New York Giants, the franchise that he's represented for the past nine seasons, reports NFL.com.
The 30-year-old defensive end is soon to become a free agent as he approaches the end of his contract at the MetLife Stadium.
"It's football - change is inevitable," Tuck reflected, in an interview with 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."
Tuck has enjoyed a successful career with the Giants, winning two Super Bowl trophies since 2005.
And despite his advancing years, Tuck has also been Tom Coughlin's best defensive lineman this season, racking up nine sacks (7.5 of which have come in the past five games).
Tuck remains open to re-signing for the New Jersey-based franchise, but is just focusing on going out on a victory ahead of this weekend's game against the Washington Redskins.
"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."
Ultimately Tuck would like to extend his stay with the New York Giants, but won't let his loyalties determine the contract that he signs.
