Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Giants are expected to re-sign DE Jason Pierre-Paul to a one-year contract.

  • Adam Schefter reports that JPP’s one-year contract can be worth up to $10.5 million.
  • Interestingly enough, the Cardinals reportedly made a late push to sign him, according to Schefter.
  • According to Rapoport, Pierre-Paul actually turned down more money from other teams to be back with the Giants.

Dan Graziano of ESPN reported earlier in the day that the Giants were in talks with the reps for Pierre-Paul for several weeks now and there was still optimism as of Monday evening that he could return to New York.

Pierre-Paul, 26, wound up receiving the Giants’ franchise tag last year, but because he suffered serious injury to his hand, the two parties later renegotiated a one-year deal worth up to $8.71 million based on incentives.

In 2015, Pierre-Paul recorded 20 tackles, a sack, two fumble recoveries and fouor pass defenses over the course of seven games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 16 defensive end in a 4-3 system out of 51 qualifying players.
