Justin Tuck: Giants' Jason Pierre-Paul is going to have a great year
by Michael Hurcomb |

Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul's inner-circle has shrunk since his Fourth of July fireworks incident, which resulted in his right index finger being amputated, according to However, one person who has been in contact with Pierre-Paul is Raiders defensive end, former teammate and mentor Justin Tuck.

"What I told JPP is go out and play football. I've been in constant conversation with JPP," Tuck said Monday at the fourth Annual Newark Mentoring Movement Charity Golf Outing at Liberty National Golf Club.

Tuck is the first player who has reported making contact with Pierre-Paul. Teammates have reached out, but Pierre-Paul has kept his correspondence restricted to family and close friends, per

While Pierre-Paul has kept the Giants out of the loop, Tuck said he is in good spirits since leaving the hospital.

"He is," Tuck said. "He'll be the first one to tell you he made a mistake. He's fine. He's going to have a great year.

"I think he will be [successful]. Once he gets used to playing again, you can't deny his athletic ability. He's a terror to block. Hopefully everything else gets healthy around him and if that is the case, I don't see any reason why he wouldn't be the JPP of the second half of the season like he was last year."

Report: Giants can't come to terms with Jason Pierre-Paul on new deal
by Michael Hurcomb |

The Giants could not agree to terms on a new deal with defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul before Wednesday's 4 p.m. ET deadline for players under the franchise tag to sign a long-term contract this year, according to the New York Daily News. The two sides can't restart negotiations on a multi-year deal until the end of the regular season.

Pierre Paul will play the 2015 season under his $14.813 million franchise tender. His chances of signing a long-term deal were significantly reduced following a fireworks incident during the Fourth of July weekend that resulted in injuries to his hands.

Although, Pierre-Paul reportedly won't sign his tender until confident he can pass his physical to prevent the team from putting him on the non-football injury (NFI) list.

The 2010 first-round pick bounced back in 2014 with 12 1/2 sacks after he was limited to two sacks in 11 games in 2013 due to injury. He has totaled 205 tackles and 42 sacks in his first five NFL seasons. He also has two interceptions -- which he returned for touchdowns -- eight forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries.

Report: Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul discharged from hospital
by Marty Gitlin |

Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul has been released from the hospital after having his right index finger amputated folllowing a July 4 fireworks accident, a source has confirmed to ESPN.

Another source has told ESPN that Pierre-Paul and the team have yet to communicate about rehab expectations and schedules. The recovery time, however, has been estimated at about six weeks. But he has yet to practice with the team - which is installing a new defense - because of a contract dispute.

The Giants have no plan to rescind the $14.813 franchise tender offer, but Pierre-Paul is unlikely to sign it at least until he passes a physical. He does not want to be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.

Report: Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul seeking full pay for 2015
by Marty Gitlin |

Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who sustained injuries to both hands as a result of a fireworks accident, will be willing to return by Week 1 of the regular season if the Giants guarantee his full salary for the year, according to Pro Football Talk.

The issue, however, is that the team does not know the extent of his injuries. Pierre-Paul allegedly refused to let team officials visit him in the hospital, perhaps because his physical issues are worse than suspected.

Pierre-Paul could wind up on the NFI (Non-Football Injury) list if he signs his franchise tender before Week 1.
