Justin Tuck is headed off to Cali, after he and the Oakland Raiders agreed on a two-year deal worth up to $11 million.

Clearly the New York Giants were ready to move on when it came to the Pro-Bowl defensive end. Tuck gave the Giants the opportunity to match, but as reports suggest they were a few million off of what the Raiders decided to pony-up.

Tuck should be able to give them some of what they will miss from Lamarr Houston, who left for Chicago. As for the Giants, they now have to hope that Jason Pierre-Paul and company will be able step up not only in the pass-rush department but as leaders on and off the field.
