Giants lock up Jason Pierre-Paul on four-year agreement

New York Giants defensive lineman Jason Pierre-Paul was re-signed to a four-year contract.

What It Means:

Still only 28, Pierre-Paul recorded seven sacks over 12 games in 2016 before a hernia injury ended his season. This deal might now allow the Giants to re-sign fellow defensive lineman Johnathan Hankins.

The Giants finished second-best in opponent-adjusted Defensive Net Expected Points allowed per play last season.
