One of the league's premier pass rushers, Tuck ended last season with 63 tackles and 11 sacks to go with one interception in 16 games.

Since arriving in the NFL from Notre Dame in 2005, Tuck has compiled 453 tackles and 60 1/2 sacks with a pair of picks in 127 contests for Big Blue. He was part of two Super Bowl teams in 2007 and 2011.
