Justin TuckPer a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, free agent defensive end Justin Tuck has agreed to a contract with the Oakland Raiders:

Tuck, a third round pick by the New York Giants in 2005, was one of the better defensive ends available in free agency and Oakland’s offer apparently trumped that offered by the Giants. After two sub-par seasons in 2011 and 2012 Tuck rebounded nicely in 2013, registering 11 sacks and 44 tackles in 16 games with the Giants, 15 starts.

For his career, Tuck has picked up 60.5 sacks and 324 tackles in nine seasons, all with the Giants. He was selected 74th overall out of Notre Dame and will be 31 at the start of the 2014 season.
