According to Giants DL coach Robert Nunn, franchise DE Jason Pierre-Paul looks to be in “very good shape” even though he’s not participating in the team’s offseason workouts.
“From all of my contact with JPP, it’s all been positive,” Nunn said, via Tom Rock of Newsday. “It is what it is. I don’t get involved with the business side of it, but he seems to be in a very good place mentally and working out and looked like he was in very good shape when he was here. We’ll see when we begin.”
