Giants Sign Jason Pierre-Paul To 4-Year Deal

It had been widely assumed that Jason Pierre-Paul’s days with the New York Giants were over and that the defensive end would find a big payday and an eventual new, long-term home.

Well, Pierre-Paul found his big payday, but he is staying with the Giants.

Less than a month after the Giants placed the franchise tag on Pierre-Paul, they reached an agreement on a new 4-year contract with him, ensuring he stays put in New York, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Pierre-Paul stuck to his promise that he wouldn’t sign another one-year deal.

“I’m not playing on no one-year deal,” Pierre-Paul said at the end of the season. “I’ve proved it. I’ve showed it. There is not really another guy like me out here doing it with 7½ fingers still.”

Pierre-Paul, 28, had a solid season with the Giants in 2016 racking up 7 sacks and had eight batted passes, which was tied for best in the NFL, before his season ended early due to sports hernia surgery.
