The deal calls for Pierre-Paul to make $62 million over four years, with $40 million guaranteed, and a $20 million signing bonus. (Not bad for sining a contract, eh?).
The Giants and Pierre-Paul had been looking to get a long term deal worked out for a long time. In February, the Giants slapped a non-exclusive franchise tag on Paul to keep him in town for a year at $17 million. Had the two sides not worked out a long term deal, that money would have been a poison pill to the Giants salary cap.
While the Giants have JPP, Brandon Marshall, offensive lineman D.J. Flucker and for whatever reason, Geno Smith in tow, they now must focus on continuing to improve that offensive line. Flucker is a nice signing, but was a slight bust for the Chargers the past four years. Big Blue needs another veteran signing for the line, and they should use their first round pick on a tackle.
