Raiders | Justin Tuck felt disrespected by former team

Fri, 14 Mar 2014 10:43:09 -0700

Oakland Raiders DE Justin Tuck said he felt disrespected by his former team, the New York Giants. Tuck wishes the team would have been more up front with him during the process. "Exactly," Tuck said. "That's the disrespect part. I don't want people to think I'm bad-mouthing the Giants. I'm not. I understand the business and I have so much gratitude for them giving me the opportunity to have my presence felt in New York and be the man I've become. "I'm just frustrated with how it ended. I'm upset about it. But I'll move on and hopefully one day time will heal all wounds. Right now, I just don't understand a lot that's gone on and how they strung us along."
