The New York Giants and Jason Pierre Paul have agreed to a four year contract extension worth $62 million with $40 million guaranteed.
The news of the contract agreement was first reported by Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Shortly after that Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that it was a four-year deal, and shortly after that Pierre-Paul took to Twitter to suggest the report wasn’t true. Pierre-Paul, who sued Schefter for publishing his medical records after Pierre-Paul blew off part of his hand in a Fourth of July fireworks accident, may have been annoyed that a reporter he sued had some information on his contract.
Pierre Paul cashed in even though he blew some of his fingers off with fireworks a couple years ago. This lead many to believe he would have a hard time playing going forward. Pierre Paul silenced the doubters and earned his huge pay day.
