Report: Giants Agree To One-Year Deal With Jason Pierre-Paul


According to an NFL Media Report, the New York Giants have agreed to a one-year deal with defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul.

It was unexpected that JPP and the Giants would come to terms, but the former first-round pick reportedly turned down more money on a longer term deal from other interested parties.

JPP will try to have a big “prove-it year” and then capitalize on the open market.

Of course that was supposed to be the plan last year, but the big defensive end blew off his finger and part of his hand in a July 4th fireworks incident.

If Pierre-Paul does indeed have a big season, the New York Giants could franchise him again while they try to work out a deal.

This doesn’t necessarily mean the Giants are out of the free agent defensive end market, as Miami’s Olivier Vernon could be a nice complement.
