Giants owner on extension for Jason Pierre-Paul: “A lot depends on how he performs this season”

The New York Giants did what most believe they would do with DE Jason Pierre-Paul. The team place the franchise tag on Pierre-Paul after both sides couldn’t agree on an extension.

Why the New York Giants Messed Up Not Resigning Antrel Rolle

Antrel Rolle with the New York Giants As the NFL season has come to a short and unsuccessful end for the New York Giants, there are many off-season tasks the team must complete in order to get ready for the start of the 2015 season.

Was Placing a Franchise Tag on Jason Pierre-Paul the Right Move?

Jason Pierre-Paul was tendered a one-year contract worth $14.8 million. While the total 2015 salary cap is $143.411 million, the team is investing heavily in the sixth-year defensive end. A franchise tag is an enormous chunk of a team’s salary spent on a single player, especially at the defensive end position, but often a necessary step to prevent a star player from hitting the...

Giants are gambling big on Jason Pierre-Paul

The New York Giants don’t like paying big bucks to anyone, regardless of whether they’re in-house or street free agents. But the G-Men also seem to realize that the window for another Super Bowl is still slightly open with Eli Manning, Victor Cruz and Odell Beckham Jr., which might explain why they decided on Monday to keep their best defensive player despite the price tag associated...

NFC East: Franchise Tag Candidates

Monday marked the period where NFL teams can designate one player for the franchise tag. The tag is essentially a one-year offer worth the average of the top-5 players at the specific position in the league or 120 percent of the player’s previous year salary–whichever is greater. The franchise tag is largely a negotiating tool at this point, as most teams don’t wish to commit...

Fixing the New York Giants defense

The New York Giants did what many fans have been hoping for in bringing back Steve Spagnuolo as their defensive coordinator after parting ways with Perry Fewell at season’s end.  Spagnuolo led the Giant’s defense to a super bowl title in 2007 before he left for separate stints with the Rams, Saints, and Ravens.  This was the Giants first off-season priority considering their...

Decision Time: What should the New York Giants do with Jason Pierre-Paul?

The futures of many New York Giants are in jeopardy this off season, but the toughest decision to make will be whether or not to re-sign defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul. The final year of his rookie contract is up and there is little doubt that he will be able to cash in during free agency come March. The only question is which team is willing to pony up the cash? The Giants may...
