New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck reveals that he could make the switch to linebacker for the 2013 NFL season.

Justin Tuck has revealed that the New York Giants are considering moving him to linebacker.

The 30-year-old played at both linebacker and tight end during high school, but has focused on the defensive end position since starting college in 2001.

Tuck told The Star Ledger: "We're toying around with a lot of things, and that's one of them. I'm always open for new things, any time you get an opportunity to showcase your versatility.

"Once I know where we're headed with it, I'll study some guys like DeMarcus [Ware, of the Dallas Cowboys] and guys like [Washington Redskins linebacker Brian] Orakpo in defenses they stand up in. LaMarr Woodley [of the Pittsburgh Steelers] is another guy."

Tuck made 45 tackles and four sacks for the Giants last season.
