The New York Giants have wanted to get a long term deal done for Jason Pierre Paul for some time now and the Giants have finally inked Pierre Paul to a 4 year contract. Giants General Manager Jerry Reese has a keen eye for talent and he knew New York would a better football team with Pierre Paul in the mix for the long term. That ultimately compelled the Giants to pull the trigger on this contract and it’s a good move for the G-Men because Pierre Paul is finding his game after that horrible firework accident he went through. Pierre Paul only recorded 1 sack in his first season back from that injury, the following year (this season) he recorded 7 sacks. As Pierre Paul adjusts to playing with one hand that is slightly weaker, he should be able to get more comfortable with that change. Meaning Pierre Paul could easily be a 10 sack defensive end in 2017 and the Giants as a team will be a Super Bowl contender. New York was somewhat of a letdown in the playoffs this past season and the team retained J.P.P and brought in Brandon Marshall to change that. That alone is enough to applaud the Giants efforts and now New York has to go nail it in the draft. This team could use a lineman upfront and another running back to really set the tone offensively for this team. If Reese can also find a successor to Eli Manning that would also be a great move. We seen how much of an impact Dak Prescott had for the Dallas Cowboys. Plugging in a younger quarterback might be a good move for the Giants as well. Manning could still have a good season especially with the addition of Marshall. However younger players give your team a different type of energy and the quarterback position has such an impact on a team’s success. Drafting a quarterback in the 3rd or 4th round could push Eli Manning to work harder and also gives the Giants to move forward if Manning isn’t delivering in training camp. It’s always good to have options in the NFL and this would be the best course of action for the New York Football Giants.
