Jason Pierre-Paul agrees to four-year deal with New York Giants — report

JPP will reportedly get $54 million in guaranteed money

The New York Giants and Jason Pierre-Paul have agreed to terms on a four-year contract, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Immediately after reporting the news, Rapoport tweeted the following, which is very true:

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the deal to be worth $68 million over four years, with $54 million guaranteed.

That’s $17 million annually with a bigger guarantee than the $52.5 million the Giants gave Olivier Vernon a year ago on his five-year, $85 million deal. We will have to wait and see ow the deal is structured to know what the 2017 cap hit will be.

As Rapoport, indicated, Pierre-Paul and the Giants have been through a lot. The Giants selected Pierre-Paul in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft and he had a 16.5-sack All-Pro season in 2011. He has been an excellent player when healthy over the years, but has not matched that level of production.

Pierre-Paul, of course, nearly wrecked his career by permanently mangling his right hand in a July 4, 2014 fireworks mishap. He played only eight games with one sack in 2015, and had seven sacks, eight passes defensed, three forced fumbles and a fumble return for a touchdown last season in 12 games before what the Giants described as a core muscle injury ended his season.

JPP appears to be messing with Giants fans. At least, Giants fans can hope he’s messing with them.

— Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
