Jason Pierre-Paul traded to the Bucs

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Giants have traded defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul and a fourth-round pick in 2018 to the Buccaneers, in exchange for a third- and fourth-round pick in 2018.

Fantasy Impact

Wow. This seems like little compensation for Pierre-Paul who was once considered one of the best defensive ends in the game. He's still one of the premier players at the position, so he'll be a welcome addition for the Bucs. The underlining fallout that may take place because of this pick, though, is that the Giants may wind up drafting Bradley Chubb at No. 2 in the draft. They've been saying that Eli Manning is their quarterback and it's always seemed unlikely they'd draft one of the offensive lineman that high. Chubb to the Giants is likely to gain some steam here in the coming weeks.

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.
