Justin Tuck will sign 1-day contract to retire a Giant

Justin Tuck will make his formal retirement announcement at the Giants training facility on Friday.

Two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Justin Tuck announced his retirement earlier this offseason and now he's ending his career where it all started. 

On Friday, Tuck will sign a one-day contract to retire a New York Giant.

The Giants will hold an official press conference on Friday afternoon.

Selected in the third round of the 2005 NFL draft out of Notre Dame, Tuck spent his first nine years with the Giants before joining the Oakland Raiders in 2014 and 2015 . 

Tuck, 33, won two Lombardi Trophies in New York and was the centerpiece of the Giants defensive line that wreaked havoc on Tom Brady and the then-undefeated New England Patriots back in Super Bowl XLII and then again foiled the team from Foxboro in Super Bowl XLVI. 

In his career Tuck amassed 66.5 sacks, 3 interceptions, 1 touchdown and 510 total tackles. Tuck's storied 11-year run in the NFL is likely Hall-of-Fame worthy and the Alabama native could find himself  enshrined in Canton, Ohio one day.
