Quick hits from Tuck news conference

Giants defensive end Justin Tuck met with the media on Wednesday morning in Indianapolis -- here are some highlights from his news conference:

* Tuck said he doesn't wear the Super Bowl ring he won four years ago, and didn't bring it to Indy. "I got nine other fingers I’m trying to fill up," Tuck said. "We’re hungry for another one."

* Tuck had high praise for his former teammate, Michael Strahan, lauding his work ethic and calling him a first-ballot Hall of Famer. "I learned so much from him, about how to play the position," Tuck said. "He taught me things to look at, things to watch on film," like analyzing the stances of offensive linemen, and taking note of different offensive formations.

Tuck also said he's trying to be the same kind of role model for young Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul. "I just want to do the same for him," Tuck said.
