The Oakland Raiders have signed unrestricted free agent DE Justin Tuck, General Manager Reggie McKenzie announced Thursday.

Tuck joins the Raiders following nine seasons with the New York Giants, during which he helped the team to victories in Super Bowl XLVI and XLII. A two-time Pro Bowler (2008 and 2010), Tuck’s career totals include 127 games played with 90 starts, 509 tackles (338 solo), 60.5 sacks, 20 forced fumbles, six fumble recoveries, two interceptions and 23 passes defensed. Additionally, he served as the team’s defensive captain from 2010-13.

Last season, Tuck played in all 16 games (15 starts) and produced 91 tackles (68 solo) with 11 sacks and two forced fumbles. He was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week in the Giants’ 24-17 victory over the Washington Redskins on Dec. 1 when he posted 10 tackles (nine solo) and four sacks.

Earning a trip to his first Pro Bowl in 2008, Tuck posted 71 tackles (42 solo), a career-high 12 sacks and three forced fumble while starting all 16 games. That season, he was also selected as a first team All-Pro by the Associated Press and the Pro Football Writers Association. In 2010, Tuck was selected to the Pro Bowl for a second time, in addition to earning second team All-Pro honors from the Associated Press and first team All-Pro by the Pro Football Writers Association.

The Kellyton, Ala. native was originally drafted by the Giants in the third round (74th overall) of the 2005 NFL Draft out of Notre Dame. Tuck played in 36 games for the Fighting Irish and is the school’s all-time leader in sacks with 24.5 and also owns the school’s record for sacks in a season when he posted 13.5 in 2003.
