Giants safety Antrel Rolle may have been recruiting free-agent tight end Jermichael Finley to join the team this offseason, but there are two players he wants in a Giants jersey for certain: defensive players Justin Tuck and Jon Beason, according to Newsday‘s Tom Rock.
Antrel said he hopes the Giants bring back two of their own free agents in particular: Justin Tuck and Jon Beason.

Both men had big seasons for the Giants and become free agents this offseason.
In 12 games with the Giants following a midseason acquisition from the Panthers, Beason recorded 93 tackles and an interception. Tuck appeared in all 16 games for the G-Men, recording 63 tackles and a team-high 11 sacks—his highest total since the 2010 season (11.5).
Tuck has stated that he will test the market to see what’s available for him, but the Giants are expected to make a run at re-signing both players to play for their defense in 2014.
