Report: DE Jason Pierre-Paul planning on joining Giants soon


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul plans to return to the team next week and to be ready to play by early in the regular season, a source has told ESPN.

An accident with fireworks caused Pierre-Paul to suffer a hand injury in which he lost at least an index finger. Both he and the team have been rather secretive about the extent of his injury, but Tom Coughlin has stated that he's been in communication with Pierre-Paul, who was eager to join the team.

Pierre-Paul has been inconsistent in his pass-rushing production since starting in the NFL, but he recorded 12 1/2 sacks in 2014, the second-highest total of his career. He also contributed to 77 tackles.


Giants' Jason Pierre-Paul speaks to Tom Coughlin


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2015) Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul spoke to head coach Tom Coughlin for the first time since suffering a hand injury on July 4. 

"I did talk to him late yesterday afternoon,' Coughlin said on Saturday, per NFL.com. "Everybody has had a good conversation with him, and mine was the same. Do I know any more than I did before? No. Do I know when he's coming? He's looking forward to coming, he's anxious to be here, but he's not going to come until he feels like he's ready to be able to play. It could be whatever amount of time, I'm not even going to speculate."

After not speaking to the team after first suffering a fireworks injury, Pierre-Paul is now communicating with the Giants. 

"We've had many people talk to him," Coughlin said. "(Defensive line coach) Robert Nunn has talked to him, (general manager) Jerry (Reese) has talked to him. He's little-by-little tried to make his contacts, and that is a positive thing."


Coach: Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul determined to return


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2015) Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul hasn't made any public declarations since a fireworks accident on July 4 cost him at least his right index finger. But he has been communicating to defensive line coach Robert Nunn, who has a message for everyone else.

And that is that the premier pass rusher plans on playing football again.

"I've spoken to him on the phone. I've texted him back and forth ... just to let him know we're here for him," Nunn told the New York Daily News. "His response has been: 'Coach, I'm good, and I want to get myself right and I'll be back.'"

When Pierre-Paul has been right, he's been deadly to opposing quarterbacks. He racked up 12 1/2 sacks in 2014.


Justin Tuck: Giants' Jason Pierre-Paul is going to have a great year


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2015) Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul's inner-circle has shrunk since his Fourth of July fireworks incident, which resulted in his right index finger being amputated, according to NJ.com. However, one person who has been in contact with Pierre-Paul is Raiders defensive end, former teammate and mentor Justin Tuck.

"What I told JPP is go out and play football. I've been in constant conversation with JPP," Tuck said Monday at the fourth Annual Newark Mentoring Movement Charity Golf Outing at Liberty National Golf Club.

Tuck is the first player who has reported making contact with Pierre-Paul. Teammates have reached out, but Pierre-Paul has kept his correspondence restricted to family and close friends, per NJ.com.

While Pierre-Paul has kept the Giants out of the loop, Tuck said he is in good spirits since leaving the hospital.

"He is," Tuck said. "He'll be the first one to tell you he made a mistake. He's fine. He's going to have a great year.

"I think he will be [successful]. Once he gets used to playing again, you can't deny his athletic ability. He's a terror to block. Hopefully everything else gets healthy around him and if that is the case, I don't see any reason why he wouldn't be the JPP of the second half of the season like he was last year."


Report: Giants can't come to terms with Jason Pierre-Paul on new deal


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2015) The Giants could not agree to terms on a new deal with defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul before Wednesday's 4 p.m. ET deadline for players under the franchise tag to sign a long-term contract this year, according to the New York Daily News. The two sides can't restart negotiations on a multi-year deal until the end of the regular season.

Pierre Paul will play the 2015 season under his $14.813 million franchise tender. His chances of signing a long-term deal were significantly reduced following a fireworks incident during the Fourth of July weekend that resulted in injuries to his hands.

Although, Pierre-Paul reportedly won't sign his tender until confident he can pass his physical to prevent the team from putting him on the non-football injury (NFI) list.

The 2010 first-round pick bounced back in 2014 with 12 1/2 sacks after he was limited to two sacks in 11 games in 2013 due to injury. He has totaled 205 tackles and 42 sacks in his first five NFL seasons. He also has two interceptions -- which he returned for touchdowns -- eight forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries.


Report: Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul discharged from hospital


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2015) Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul has been released from the hospital after having his right index finger amputated folllowing a July 4 fireworks accident, a source has confirmed to ESPN.

Another source has told ESPN that Pierre-Paul and the team have yet to communicate about rehab expectations and schedules. The recovery time, however, has been estimated at about six weeks. But he has yet to practice with the team - which is installing a new defense - because of a contract dispute.

The Giants have no plan to rescind the $14.813 franchise tender offer, but Pierre-Paul is unlikely to sign it at least until he passes a physical. He does not want to be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.


Report: Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul seeking full pay for 2015


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2015) Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who sustained injuries to both hands as a result of a fireworks accident, will be willing to return by Week 1 of the regular season if the Giants guarantee his full salary for the year, according to Pro Football Talk.

The issue, however, is that the team does not know the extent of his injuries. Pierre-Paul allegedly refused to let team officials visit him in the hospital, perhaps because his physical issues are worse than suspected.

Pierre-Paul could wind up on the NFI (Non-Football Injury) list if he signs his franchise tender before Week 1.


Report: Jason Pierre-Paul won't sign tender until he can pass physical


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2015) Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who sustained injuries to his hands as a result of a Fourth of July fireworks accident, won't sign his franchise tender until confident he can pass his physical to prevent the team from putting him on the non-football injury (NFI) list, a source told ESPN.

Pierre-Paul reportedly had his right index finger amputated Wednesday. Originally, it was believed Pierre-Paul had only suffered burns on three fingers and parts of both hands.


Report: Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul can forget long-term deal


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2015) The Giants will not take back their one-year franchise tag offer of $14.813 million to defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul in the wake of a fireworks accident that resulted in a hand injury and hospitalization, a source has told the New York Daily News.

But the source added that there is "no chance" the Giants will now work on a long-term contract for Pierre-Paul. 

Giants officials made the trek to South Florida on Tuesday to see how he is recovering, sources have told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Pierre-Paul is coming off his best season since 2011. He contributed to 77 tackles and racked up 12 1/2 sacks.


Giants pulling long-term contract offer to Jason Pierre-Paul


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/6/2015) In the wake of a Fourth of July fireworks mishap, the Giants on Monday pulled their long-term contract offer to defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who remains hospitalized in Miami, per NFL.com insider Ian Rapaport. 

The Giants had applied the franchise tag to Pierre-Paul this offseason, but the player has not yet signed it, technically leaving him not under contract with the team. The Giants move to yank the longer deal is a bit of gamesmanship, since according to Rapoport, Pierre-Paul was not going to sign the $60 million deal anyway. 


Report: Giants Jason Pierre-Paul hurt in fireworks accident


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/5/2015) Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul reportedly hurt his hand in a Fourth of July fireworks accident in Miami, according to the Daily News

Pierre-Paul had 53 tackles and 12 1/2 sacks last year for New York. 


Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul dropping weight to he can drop QBs


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2015) Giants unsigned defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who has been working on his own in Florida, is in the process of losing weight in an attempt to maximize his potential as a pass-rusher, per NJ.com.

Pierre-Paul has yet to sign his one-year franchise tender worth close to $15 million.

He has played in the past at about 280 pounds, but he posted on Instagram that he hopes to drop to 265.

Pierre-Paul will be counted on heavily to pressure the quarterback this season. His sack total skyrocketed from two in 2013 to 12 1/2 last year.


It's official: Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul a minicamp no-show


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2015) What the Giants feared, but expected, is now reality. Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is officially a holdout, per NJ.com

Pierre-Paul is not attending minicamp, which began Tuesday. As a franchise player who has declined to sign his one-year, $14.8 million contract, he cannot be fined. He is seeking a long-term deal.

The 26-year-old Pierre-Paul has remained in Florida throughout the offseason. He did not attend any OTA activities.


Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul not expected at minicamp


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/15/2015) As the Giants begin their mandatory minicamp Tuesday, defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is not expected to take part as he seeks a long-term contract extenstion, per NJ.com.

In a unique twist, Pierre-Paul, who has not signed his one-year, $15 million franchise tender cannot be fined since he is technically is not on the Giants' roster. Pierre-Paul has not received a contract offer from the Giants aside from the franchise designation.

Pierre-Paul had 12 1/2 sacks last season but will be playing for a new defensive coordinator in Steve Spagnuolo, meaning he could be behind when he finally does report.

"I expect him to be there," Coughlin said, "but we'll have to see."

Pierre-Paul has yet to sign his franchise tender or an injury wavier in order to participate in workouts.

"We went back and forth about two weeks ago with some text inquiries and so on and so forth," Coughlin said. "He's working hard. He tells me he's working hard. And he's spoken to [defensive line coach] Robert Nunn on more than one occasion too."

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/20/2015) Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul swung by the team facility Monday as rest of his teammates began voluntary conditining work, but Pierre-Paul did not participate, per the Daily News

In this case, the situation doesn't necessarily mean bad blood between player and team. Pierre-Paul has yet to sign his franchise tag tender and didn't sign an injury waiver that would allow him to take part in workouts. 

Pierre-Paul, who had 12.5 sacks last season, is working out with his own personal trainer in preparation for the upcoming season.

"We're talking but that is all I'm going to say about that," Reese said to NJ.com. "It's really not appropriate to really talk about where we are in respect to that, but we are talking."

Pierre-Paul on Giants' problems: 'It is all about heart'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Just a few days after his teammate safety Antrel Rolle questioned his team's effort in a 40-24 Monday night loss against the Colts, Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul told reporters Friday that the team did not have enough "heart," per ESPN. With the Week 9 defeat, the Giants have dropped three consecutive games and are 3-5 on the season, three games behind Philadelphia for first place in the NFC East.

"Honestly, it is not all about attitude, it is all about heart," Pierre-Paul said Thursday, when asked about the Giants' attitude heading into the second half of the season. "You can have the attitude, you can have the swagger, you can talk your way, but it is all about heart. If you don’t have the heart to play this game, then we are going to continue losing.

"That is with every guy, every guy has to challenge their self to play more and do more than what they expect," he continued. "When it comes down to it, it is all about heart. If you don’t have heart, that is something you can’t give a player, you just have to have it."
