Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul: 'I think I am worth a lot of money'

Friday December 26th, 2014

Jason Pierre-Paul said he would like to remain with the New York Giants but is uncertain about his future, according to a report from ESPN New York.

Pierre-Paul is in his fifth season with the Giants since being selected in the first round of the 2010 draft. In 2011, Pierre-Paul recorded 16.5 sacks and 65 tackles while helping New York reach the Super Bowl. 

The 25-year-old amassed only 8.5 sacks over two subsequent seasons while dealing with injuries. Over 15 games this season, he has recorded 10.5 sacks and 49 tackles. 

Pierre-Paul, who is in the final year of his rookie contract, is eligible to enter free agency this offseason.

From the report:

"I think I am worth a lot of money," Pierre-Paul said when asked what he thinks he's worth. "What do you think?" [...]

"I don't know what my future holds," Pierre-Paul said. "Who knows if I am going to be in a Giant uniform, who knows where I am going to be in the offseason. Like I said, now, the numbers are there, I had a great season, and everybody sees it. There really is nothing else to say, just negotiations and it is coming."

The Giants (6-9) host the Philadelphia Eagles (9-6) on Sunday to close the regular season.
