The team was set to tag Pierre-Paul if a long-term deal could not be reached, per a report in February, and he still remains unsigned as Monday's deadline for tagging players approaches. If the two sides cannot work out a long-term deal, the defensive end would receive $14.813 million to play in 2015.
Pierre-Paul racked up 12 1/2 sacks in a rebound season in 2014.
The Giants have until March 2 to reach an agreement or use the franchise tag on Pierre-Paul. The tag for defensive ends is expected to be around $15 million.
"We're talking but that is all I'm going to say about that," Reese said to NJ.com. "It's really not appropriate to really talk about where we are in respect to that, but we are talking."
If the Giants and Pierre-Paul are unable to agree on a new contract, the team can franchise tag the 25-year-old defensive end. The tag for defensive ends is expected to be near $15 million.
Pierre-Paul finished with a team-high 12 1/2 sacks in 2014, totaling 77 tackles on the year.
"Well we are convinced that we want [Pierre-Paul] back, without a doubt, and there's been a lot of different discussions, hopefully he's going to remain a Giant," Coughlin said. "The goal is for him to be a Giant and play as a Giant forever, and retire as a Giant. How that works out is another issue."
Last season, Pierre-Paul racked up 77 tackles and 12 1/2 sacks, his best numbers since his breakout 2011 All-Pro campaign. Pierre-Paul will turn 26 at the end of February.
