New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck will make an appearance on an episode of “Necessary Roughness,” according to ESPNNewYork.com.
Look for the Giants’ soft-spoken defensive captain when he guest stars on Wednesday night’s episode of “Necessary Roughness,” USA Network’s pro football-centric, one-hour drama series.
Tuck was asked what took him so long to do something like this.
“I’m not that big of a star,” Tuck said with a chuckle Tuesday. “Sometimes it takes a little longer than you might think. But I got the opportunity to do something different, and I jumped on it. It was a fun experience, and I got an opportunity to work with great people.
“I mean, I think everybody in America knows Uncle Jessie.”
Tuck was referring to John Stamos, who became a star on the hit shot “Full House” back in the 1980′s and 1990′s.
Now in its third season, “Necessary Roughness” is pulling away from the fictional New York Hawks football team to focus on V3, the sports and entertainment agency run by Stamos’ Connor McClane.
In the episode airing Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET, McClane hosts Tuck at a charity gala, where the Alabaman walks the red carpet and ribs Terrence “T.K.” King (Mehcad Brooks), the Hawks star who’d missed out on an endorsement deal with Subway, a brand Tuck endorses in real life. The sandwich shop’s signage can be seen in the background.

Looks like Tiki Barber decided it was time for him to get himself back in the news.
The former Today Show correspondent/New York Giants running back was on the CBS radio network . During the gabbing, Barber said he thinks Eli Manning is better than Peyton Manning, which is a great way to get people all riled up.
"The expectation was that he was never going to be Peyton,"...
Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com believes the New York Giants may end up riding the hot hand when it comes to who gets the ball out of the backfield between David Wilson and Andre Brown.
Tom Coughlin will likely split carries between Wilson and Brown, who should complement each other well. While Wilson brings the home-run threat, Brown offers the Giants a well-rounded option. He...
Back in 2007, just months after former Giants running back TIki Barber retired from the NFL he ripped quarterback Eli Manning and claimed that he wasn’t a leader. Of course Eli then took the Giants on an amazing Super Bowl run that season.
Now it sounds like Barber is more of a believer in Eli that he’s ever been. He now co-hosts a radio show on CBS Sports Radio and claimed...
As I have explained in previous articles, I am a die-hard fan of the New York Giants. As a fan, I admittedly wear my blinders frequently for Big Blue despite my best efforts to remain objective, but, it drives me absolutely bonkers when I have to listen to pundits put down or disrespect Eli Manning, especially when they use misleading statistics to prove their points. It has...
During an appearance on “The Opening Drive” on SiriusXM Radio on Monday, Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz was asked how he felt about taking less money than he felt like he deserved.
“I’m not going to lie, it’s tough. It’s tough,” said Cruz, via Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. When you understand from a numbers standpoint, and the numbers you put up you...
Tiki Barber has made a nice living recently trolling and making head scratching comments at every turn.
Barber who was always critical of Eli Manning when they were teammates recently paid him the highest compliment, even if it’s sure to set off some controversy.
During his CBS Sports Radio Network show that Barber also hosts with Brandon Tierney and Dana Jacobson, the question...
Victor Cruz and the New York Giants are happy to have gotten the 26-year-old’s contract situation squared away, but that does not mean he feels he was compensated fairly. Once a player signs on the dotted line, he no longer has a right to complain. No one forced Cruz to sign a five-year, $43 million [...]
The New York Giants finally got their man, when they signed star wide receiver Victor Cruz to a six-year almost $45 million extension.
That’s pretty good money, but Cruz knows he left some money on the table, and as he told Sirius XM radio, he knows “he took less than he deserves.”
“I’m not going to lie, it’s tough. It’s tough. When you understand from a numbers standpoint...
Tweet Victor Cruz, who has gained much popularity in a short period of time as a receiver for the New York Giants, recently signed a six-year contract worth upwards of $45 million –$15.6 million guaranteed — to stay with the Giants. Apparently Cruz believes he should have gotten more, per some comments he recently made [...]
In the interest of full disclosure, I am a die-hard New York Giants fan. I first started seriously watching football during the 1986 season when the Giants defeated the Denver Broncos, 39-20 in Super Bowl XXI. In that game, Phil Simms had one of the best Super Bowl/Championship game performances of all time going 22-25 for 268 yards and 3 TD’s earning him MVP honors. But...
