Jason Pierre-Paul: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Pierre-Paul is expected to receive the Giants' franchise tag, should he fail to reach a long-term contract extension with the team by Mar. 2, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Pierre-Paul posted a much-improved 12.5 sacks during his contract year last season, and by doing so, he put himself in great position to cash in this offseason. With the Giants looking to maintain their accomplished pass-rusher, he's expected to sign a long-term deal or receive the franchise tag in the coming weeks. As a result, it appears Pierre-Paul will remain with the Giants next season, when he'll look to build on his resurgent campaign last term.
After notching two more sacks, four solo tackles, and an assist in Week 17, Pierre-Paul closed out a strong season with 77 total tackles and 12.5 sacks.

2015

2014

There is no greater enigma among IDPs than Pierre-Paul, and it's probably not close. It appeared in 2011 as if he would establish himself as one of the league's best players at any position. Some observers may have even had the Hall of Fame in mind after the 22 year old Pierre-Paul had 86 tackles and 16.5 sacks during the 2011 season. In the two seasons since then, Pierre-Paul has been one of the league's biggest disappointments. He has just 93 tackles and 8.5 sacks in 27 games, including just 27 tackles and two sacks last year. There are a couple reasons to expect a bounce back in 2014, however. The first is that he's in a contract year, and if motivation was a problem the last two years, the prospect of a big pay day should get his attention. Second, injuries may have had a lot to do with JPP's struggles the last two years. An offseason back surgery may have hurt his effectiveness last year, and he played through a back issue for part of 2012. He's supposed to have a clean bill of health now, and he has no excuse for another failed season.

2013

Pierre-Paul was a colossal disappointment in 2012 after his remarkable 2011 set the expectations sky high, but it would be wise to expect a bounce-back season in 2013 for two reasons: (1) Pierre-Paul played through a back issue all December, which could partially explain why he didn't have a sack in that month; and (2) With Osi Umenyiora gone in free agency, Pierre-Paul should see his snap count approach 950 after playing 879 last year. Even if Pierre-Paul doesn't repeat the 16.5 sacks he had in 2011, he's always an excellent source of tackles for a defensive lineman. Pierre-Paul, however, underwent surgery in June to address the lingering back problem (a herniated disk), and his Week 1 status is uncertain.

2012

The Giants insist that Pierre-Paul still has a lot of room to grow as a player. Given how freakishly dominant he was in 2011, thatís setting the bar high, to say the least. Pierre-Paul could probably regress slightly and still be the best defensive lineman IDP. In fact, he is arguably the top IDP at any position after finishing his sophomore season with an unreal total of 86 tackles (65 solo), including 16.5 sacks and one safety, as well as seven passes defended and two forced fumbles. There might be some concern Pierre-Paulís numbers drop as a result of offensive lines devoting more blocking resources toward him, but itís difficult to see how that would be likely. Osi Umenyiora didnít play the first three weeks, and Justin Tuck missed one of those games while playing injured in the other two with a neck injury. Pierre-Paul would have, therefore, been the top concern of offensive coordinators in those three weeks. Despite that, Pierre-Paul produced 17 tackles (13 solo), 4.5 sacks, two passes defended and one forced fumble over that span. It doesnít look like he can be stopped.

2011

Last year's explosive first-round draft pick, Pierre-Paul will be in the defensive line rotation and could see extra action if Osi Umenyiora signs elsewhere.

2010

Rookie pass-rusher is raw, but has a ton of ability and upside. Will be worked into the team's deep defensive line rotation slowly unless he blows the coaches away.
