Jason Pierre-Paul gets another franchise tag from Giants

Ahead of the March 1 deadline, the Giants on Monday applied the franchise tag to the defensive end after tagging him two years earlier.

The Giants are risking upsetting JPP with a franchise tag designation, and they also risk having to pay him a higher annual salary (around $17 million next season) than they'd prefer.

Last year, Jason Pierre-Paul had 53 tackles with seven sacks and three forced fumbles.

Pierre-Paul's projected $17 million tag tender is guaranteed, and immediately counts against the Giants' cap in full.




Per a league source, the Giants have slapped the franchise tag onto a player who recovered from a fireworks mishaps that disfigured his right hand to have a very strong 2016 season. Ingram made more sense as a younger option, but he too is expected to get the franchise tag. He chose to stay on with NY last off-season, as he returned fully as possible from a 2015 fireworks accident that eventually prompted the amputation of a finger. The estimated $17 million he'll get on the tag isn't bad for one year, but it's obvious why the 28-year-old would want a long-term deal. They later signed him to a one-year deal that season, and again last year. I've proved it. I've showed it.

But JPP missed the final four regular season games and the wild-card game at Green Bay after undergoing sports hernia surgery.

"I've done proved it", Pierre-Paul said. "There's not a guy like me doing it with 7 and a half fingers". The Giants ended up withdrawing their long-term offer.

Asked if Pierre-Paul wants to return to the Giants, Hendrickson paused before answering.
