Jason Pierre-Paul: 'I would love to be a Giant for life'
The former first-round draft pick has been with the Giants for all five seasons of his NFL career.
On Nov. 14, Pierre-Paul said he wasn't worried about his future, saying "Hey, it is what it is. If I’m here, I’m here. If I’m not, I’m not."
Pierre-Paul was named to the Pro Bowl in both 2011 and 2012. He underwent back surgery in 2013 and did not play a full season for the first time in his career. Through 13 games this season, he has 61 tackles, two forced fumbles and seven sacks, including two in Sunday’s victory over the Tennessee Titans. The seven sacks are the most he’s had since his 16.5 sack All-Pro campaign in 2011.
From ESPN New York:
"If I could stay here, I would love to be a Giant for life," Pierre-Paul said. "But who knows? I don’t know what’s going to happen and I don’t worry about it. My agent will handle it with the Giants when it comes time to talk."
The Giants are 4-9 this season, and will likely miss the playoffs for the third straight season since their Super Bowl run in 2011.
