Other than making fun of the fact he blew his own finger off in a fireworks accident, we haven’t heard much from Jason Pierre-Paul and neither have the Giants.
Both could be changing soon.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Pierre-Paul plans to report to the Giants before the start of the regular season, since his rehabilitation is “progressing very well.”
Of course, the Giants are going to want to determine that for themselves before they hand him $14.8 million. They haven’t rescinded the franchise tag, and Pierre-Paul hasn’t signed it either, since he might not pass a physical and could go on the unpaid non-football injury list when he does.
The Giants have had some degree of contact, but not much, and clearly not enough to pencil him into the lineup for the opener against the Cowboys, and not enough to guarantee him 17 weeks worth of checks.
