Four years, $62 million for JPP

Jason Pierre-Paul wanted a long-term deal, and Jason Pierre-Paul got a long-term deal.

With the deadline for converting his one-year franchise tender into a multi-year contract nearly four months away, the Giants and JPP got a deal done.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, it’s a four-year deal with a base value of $62 million. Of that amount, $29 million is fully guaranteed at signing.

The cash flow is as follows: $22.5 million in 2017, $35 million through 2018, $49.5 million through 2019, and $62 million. Incentives can push the value of the contract to $66 million.

Pierre-Paul swapped his $16.9 million franchise tender in 2017 plus the possibility of a 44-percent increase if franchise-tagged again in 2018 or a 20-percent spike if transition tagged for $35 million over two years. His guaranteed money of $40 million (fully guaranteed at signing plus injury-only) covers the $37.18 million he would have made under the franchise tag this year and transition tag next year.

    Imagine how much more money he’d have made if he had all his fingers.

  2. WhatUpWithThat says: Mar 17, 2017 3:16 PM

    Got to hand it to the guy!

  3. buttfumbles says: Mar 17, 2017 3:18 PM

    Let the puns begin!

  4. niners816 says: Mar 17, 2017 3:20 PM

    That’s like 12 mil for each remaining finger. Those are some expensive digits.

  5. curtj5 says: Mar 17, 2017 3:20 PM

    Can he pass the ball?

  6. jerrysglassescleaner says: Mar 17, 2017 3:21 PM

    Gotta “hand” it to the guy. “One” thumb up for the deal. A little too much. Can quite out my “finger” on it on why so much?

  7. winningisabrees says: Mar 17, 2017 3:22 PM

    Two thumbs up

    Seems he’s pointed in the right direction

    @cmtumd:

    10% more?

  13. jag1959 says: Mar 17, 2017 3:29 PM

    Need to see the full break down, particularly the guarantees by year but if that total is ‘real’ it seems a bit high

  14. arvinkp says: Mar 17, 2017 3:33 PM

    Those digits seem to be blown out of proportion.

    I think the Giants missed something with this contract, but I can’t seem to put my finger on it.

  18. cmtumd says: Mar 17, 2017 3:37 PM

    @chris11le

    I’m sure it would be enough for one hell of a fireworks display

  19. jjackwagon says: Mar 17, 2017 3:38 PM

    He will never see that last two years of that money. It will get restructured or he will get cut.

    BTW I hope the Giants have added a no-fireworks-clause to the contract.

  20. hatersgonnahatehate says: Mar 17, 2017 3:39 PM

    thats alot of digits.

  21. weepingjebus says: Mar 17, 2017 3:39 PM

    We all enjoy the hand jokes, but at least his injury was completely over the top using a giant trailer full of fireworks to celebrate America’s freedom. I respect that dedication. By contrast Kaepernick was probably playing it safe that day with a vegan salad and flipping through a few chapters of his little red book.

  22. therealraider says: Mar 17, 2017 3:39 PM

    I bet he gave his agent a high 3 after getting that deal.

  23. MostlyRight says: Mar 17, 2017 3:40 PM

    Less money per year than Chandler Jones, but more per finger per year.

  24. codythao35 says: Mar 17, 2017 3:41 PM

    That much money for some one who keeps saying they is talking about him? Perhaps I need to go to his school. Don’t waste it on fire crackers.

  25. IMHIM says: Mar 17, 2017 3:41 PM

    This guy is like Malik Jackson when he was with the Broncos. He was great with other guys around him but put him in a system where he is expected to be a star and he falls flat on his face. JPP’s glory days were when he played with Osi and Strahan. He hasn’t done squat since they won a super bowl and he’s missing some fingers. What a waste.

  26. exinsidetrader says: Mar 17, 2017 3:42 PM

    He almost let all those millions slip through his finger.

  27. RuddyJamesDIO says: Mar 17, 2017 3:42 PM

    The fingerless guy is not worth anything close to that contract money….

  28. wib22 says: Mar 17, 2017 3:43 PM

    How could he haved signed the contract?

  29. nflviewer says: Mar 17, 2017 3:46 PM

    News stories made it seem like there was some fighting between JPP and the Giants. As if they had stuck a finger in his eye. Instead, we find out the deal got thumbs up from both sides, and they were able to have a firm handshake to seal the deal. For a while I didn’t think JPP would get any money from the Giants, but looks like he got about 80% or even 85% of what he was planning for.

    Could be some big celebrating going on tonight at JPP’s place. The guy probably felt a lot of stress about his contract but now that it’s signed he can let all that pressure explode outward.

  30. cobrala2 says: Mar 17, 2017 3:46 PM

    Is he really worth that much money?

  31. derrickbrooks4president says: Mar 17, 2017 3:48 PM

    He sure didn’t give the Giants the 5 finger discount.

  32. jackedupboonie says: Mar 17, 2017 3:48 PM

    I ain’t no signed nothin, who be sayin I done signed is be wrong.

  33. daysend564 says: Mar 17, 2017 3:51 PM

    He ain’t not no gonna sign no way

  34. anthonykornheiser says: Mar 17, 2017 3:53 PM

    @IMHIM
    Never played with Strahan, Pierre paul came into the league in 2010 and Strahan retired after the 07 SB.
    Osi was already on a major decline, almost missed a full season and wasn’t even a starter the year they won. Osi played his final two seasons in ATL then signed a one day contract just to retire a Giant.
    My issue with JPP is he misses games due to injury almost every single year.

  35. hawksfansince77 says: Mar 17, 2017 3:56 PM

    Have to give a hand to him and his agent….they really gained the upper hand on those negotiations. I can count the fingers on my one hand how many guys got a deal like this.

  36. winningisabrees says: Mar 17, 2017 3:57 PM

    Hope this doesn’t backfire

  37. hawksfansince77 says: Mar 17, 2017 3:59 PM

    Looks like JPP had Jerry Reese wrapped around his little finger!

  38. hawksfansince77 says: Mar 17, 2017 4:00 PM

    Cross your fingers JPP doesn’t get hurt or something.

  39. hawksfansince77 says: Mar 17, 2017 4:01 PM

    Nice to see, in America, if you work hard, work your finger to the bone, eventually, you get paid.

  40. Mr. Wright 212 says: Mar 17, 2017 4:01 PM

    Let the puns begin? You lames are still making finger jokes two years later?

    You’re the type to just now catch onto 90s slang in 2017.

  41. jmac1013 says: Mar 17, 2017 4:03 PM

    That’s an explosive deal. Will it blow up in the giants faces?

  42. csb28 says: Mar 17, 2017 4:08 PM

    Too much $$ on one player. Better to get two good players for that much. It leaves less for the rest of the team and in my opinion weakens the team. I would rather have a well balanced team than one with a couple of high paid superstars.

  43. badmoonrison says: Mar 17, 2017 4:19 PM

    I must be getting old or less knowledgeable about individual football players because it seems like more and more these seemingly non-stars are getting elite-star type money. There’s only about 2-3 WRs in this league worth that kinda dough and JPP ain’t one of em.

  44. dtm1088 says: Mar 17, 2017 4:20 PM

    I’m a die hard Giants fan, but in the last 2 years (for whatever reasons) the guy blew off half his hand and has 8 total sacks. His agent is amazing. I hope this guy can be a great player again. My initial reaction is this guy just got WAY overpaid.

  45. bocadiver1 says: Mar 17, 2017 4:24 PM

    What a bunch of less-than-funny jerks y’all are. In my fondest dreams I hope at least most of you have a crippling injury that others can snicker at.

  48. IMHIM says: Mar 17, 2017 4:27 PM

    @anthonykornheiser, thanks for the correction. I meant Justin Tuck, not Strahan. The “fast like a nascar” year. Either way, my argument holds.

    12 games played (with 1.5 hands), and put a lot of pressure on the defense which presented opportunities for Vernon to do his thing.

    Between this contract and the one they gave Vernon last year I can see some cap trouble in the coming years. That’s a ton of money to have invested in one position. Not too mention they are gonna have to pay up soon if they want to keep Beckham around!

    he was a beast last year till he got hurt. def poy candidate even.

  62. realtruthteller100 says: Mar 17, 2017 6:17 PM

    tbh the giants could of gotten him on a 7 figure deal per year considering thats the highest he count to on his fingers.

    Whiny? If begging you dullards to up your game and come strong with some good, witty, well-thought puns to make us all laugh is considered whining well then, yup…I’m proud to be whiny!

    To the stat geeks talking about 5 sacks against Cleve/Chi….our defense is a puzzle. He’s an important piece. A piece of a puzzle that gave up the second fewest points in the league last year.

    More money but less fingers with which to count it. Live and learn, I suppose.

  69. nyneal says: Mar 17, 2017 8:17 PM

    Wow…. That’s insane money for JPP. If he’s worth that much, the Texans might as well just hand the keys to the front gate to J.J. Watt when his next contract comes up. JJP couldn’t carry Watt’s jock.

    These salaries are absurd. There is no way JPP is worth that kind of money. He simply is not that good, and even if he were, he still wouldn’t be worth anywhere near that kind of money.

    I said the same thing about DonkeyKong Suh, by the way. The Dolphins have already seen what a waste paying him all that dough was.

    The longer these owners own teams, the dumber some of them get. I mean, we just saw the Eagles re-sign Nick Foles for 11.5 million for two years, with 7 million guaranteed! For what? A back up QB who proved twice he isn’t good enough to be a starter. And worse — they had to release Chase Daniel a year after giving him a 21 million dollar contract.

    It’s insane, it really is. And wait until some team hands the Pats a bunch of draft picks and gives Jimmy Garroplo a huge contract, even though he has only played in a hand full of games.

  70. malleng says: Mar 17, 2017 8:25 PM

  74. mmmpierogi says: Mar 18, 2017 10:03 AM

    JPP obviously had the upper hand in negotiating this new contract. He’ll be raking in the dough hand over fist for the next 4 years. I’m sure he gave his agent a round of applause once he heard the good news.

  75. dejadoh says: Mar 18, 2017 10:39 AM

    It’s not 2012 (coming off 2011). He’s had 2 good seasons and 5 below average to terrible years. Are the Giants hoping for 1 in 4? They are paying too much.

  76. mysterytonite says: Mar 18, 2017 10:46 AM

    You could s taken two of mike browns fingers before he would’ve spent that kind of money on resigning one of his players!

  77. ricosauze says: Mar 18, 2017 12:47 PM

    Waste of $$$.
    Plus NYG ain’t winning SB anytime soon.
    No way in hell NFL allows Eli to win more SB’s than Peyton.
