Giants Reportedly Getting Money Ready to Bring Back Jason Pierre-Paul

The Giants’ Monday releases of veteran running back Rashad Jennings and franchise icon Victor Cruz didn’t occur in a vacuum, Chris Wesseling of NFL.com reports.

New York’s front office is freeing up salary-cap space, with designs on preventing impending free agent Jason Pierre-Paul from reaching the open market.

“I do expect them to make a legitimate run in the coming days and weeks,” NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo said on Monday’s edition of Up to the Minute Live. “They will try and get a deal done before he can potentially hit the free agent market.”

Pierre-Paul made it clear last month that he will not accept another one-year, prove-it contract to remain with the Giants.

He was just hitting his stride, recording 5.5 sacks over a two-game span to close out November, when he went down with a season-ending core-muscle injury that required surgery.
