New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck recently admitted that he didn’t put as much work in during the 2011 season as he should have.
“I definitely didn’t work as hard as I should’ve last year,” said Tuck in an interview for ESPN’s E:60, per ESPN.com. “The lockout was going on. I took a trip to Africa. There were some things I did in the past that I didn’t do last summer.”
Tuck struggled with multiple injuries last season that hurt his production, but in the middle of the season it was obvious he wasn’t as fired up as he normally is and it was clear he may not have given the effort he needed.
