A star that has emerged in the Giants defense this season has gotten a bit richer. The Newark Star-Ledger is reporting that defensive end Justin Tuck has agreed to terms with the club on a five-year extension worth $30 million that will keep him a member of the Giants though the 2013 season. The contract is also got $16 million locked in with guaranteed money. The 3rd round pick of the Giants from 2005 has had a breakout season, while not even being a starter, as the put up 10 sacks for minus 61 yards, 48 solo tackles and 65 total.

Tuck last season played in just six games, making just 10 total tackles. The defensive end is expected to be the main pass rusher in the Giants defense if he’s not already, as reports are he will take the spot of Michael Strahan when he retires, next year or whenever. Tuck plays both end spots in the teams defense in pass-rush situations. The former Note Dame standout started just two games this year, but next season will likely be in the lineup full-time with a lot more green in his pocket.
