Giants' Jason Pierre-Paul doesn't want a prove-it deal in 2017

New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul said he won't be signing a one-year, prove-it contract this offseason.

What It Means:

JPP played on a one-year deal this season after blowing a couple of his fingers off one of his hands in a fireworks accident two summers ago. "I've done proved it," Pierre-Paul said. "There's not a guy like me doing it with seven and a half fingers." Pierre-Paul missed the final five weeks of the season after undergoing a sports-hernia procedure, but was expected back this week if the Giants made it past the Green Bay Packers.

The Giants' defense ranked second in the league in schedule-adjusted Defensive Net Expected Points per play during the regular season.
