EAST RUTHERFORD - One of the most important players in the history of the New York Giants retired Friday.

Justin Tuck, a former team captain who played a critical role in two Super Bowl wins, was known as much for his on-field performance as his leadership.

During those Super Bowls, both against the New England Patriots, Tuck sacked quarterback Tom Brady four times. He retires as sixth on the Giants' all-time sacks list.

Tuck says he can name every player on both of those championship-winning teams along with what colleges they played for.

After spending two years with the Oakland Raiders, he returned to the Meadowlands to retire a Giant.

Next up, Tuck says he will attend the Wharton Business School to get a master's degree.
