Jason Pierre-Paul signs long-term deal with Giants

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the New York Giants and pass rusher Jason Pierre-Paul agreed to terms on a four-year, $62 million deal that could be worth "up to" $66 million with incentives and includes $40 million in guaranteed money.

Fantasy Impact

Pierre-Paul, who was franchise tagged last month, agreed to a four-year extension with the Giants Friday. Despite playing in only 12 games in 2016, the veteran pass rusher accumulated 54 tackles, seven sacks, three forced fumbles and a recovery. He will continue to anchor a Giants defensive line that was the strength of their team last season.

Jason Pierre-Paul, Giants not close on long-term deal

The New York Giants are reportedly nowhere close to a long-term deal with franchise-tagged defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul.

Fantasy Impact

JPP has proven he can be just as disruptive even without a few of his fingers, so there is no reason for the Giants not to shell out the necessary money. Still, JPP should have no problem playing out this one-year deal before cashing in next year during free agency.

Jason Pierre-Paul franchise tagged

The New York Giants have placed the franchise tag on pass rusher Jason Pierre-Paul on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

The Giants tagged Pierre-Paul not only to retain his services for 2017 but also likely out of fear that they would lose him if he reached the open market this offseason. Pierre-Paul, who was expected to command at least $15 million per year in free agency, will earn close to $17 million if he plays out the season under the tender. At 28-years-old, Pierre-Paul is one of the league's top pass rushers despite his recent injury concerns. He totaled seven sacks in 12 games in 2016.

Jason Pierre-Paul could be franchise tagged by Giants

ESPN's Jordan Raanan believes the New York Giants could use the franchise tag on pass rusher Jason Pierre-Paul this offseason if the two sides cannot agree to terms on a long-term deal.

Fantasy Impact

Pierre-Paul, who only played in 12 games in 2016 due to a sports hernia injury ending his season, is expected to receive a contract in the range of at least $15 million per year this offseason. If he reaches the open free agent market, another team would likely swoop in and outbid New York for the pass rusher's services as it is a position in demand in today's NFL. However, the Giants could prevent that scenario from happening by tagging Pierre-Paul. The franchise tag, which is projected to be worth close to $17 million for pass rushers in 2017, could be applied as a bridge until the two sides could agree to terms on a long-term deal later in the offseason if one is not reached by the March 1 deadline.

Jason Pierre-Paul to miss extended time with injury

New York Giants pass rusher Jason Pierre-Paul (core) underwent surgery to repair a core muscle injury and will miss the next six weeks of football activities as a result.

Fantasy Impact

Pierre-Paul has 54 tackles, seven sacks, a fumble recovery for a touchdown, three forced fumbles, and eight pass deflections in 2016 and his production will be missed on a stout Giants defense moving forward. He will be sidelined for the rest of the regular season but could return in the playoffs should the team advance to the NFC Championship game.
