This situation with JPP has gone from bizarre to downright frightening.
Making a mockery of Jasons everywhere, Jason Pierre-Paul has put himself in a most precarious place.

The Giants are aware of an incident involving Jason Pierre-Paul and fireworks, but the team is unsure about the severity of any injuries to the star defensive end.

The Giants are kicking off their three-day minicamp on Tuesday. Attendance is mandatory, but according to a report, defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul doesn’t plan to participate.

Unlike the traditional franchise tag, the non-exclusive franchise tag allows other teams to offer Pierre-Paul a contract.
Between now and March 2, NFL teams have to decide whether or not to use a franchise tag on certain players. The Giants are currently thinking long and hard about wether they will do just that with Jason Pierre-Paul.
