Today, the Giants keep an important piece on their defense by retaining Jason Pierre-Paul to a one-year deal worth $10.5 mil, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com. This deal is more of a prove yourself type of deal, even though Pierre-Paul had multiple offers from other teams for more money. He thinks he is going to do well and land a big deal next off-season.

In addition, it seems Robert Ayers will be looking for a new team to play for in 2016. So the Giants keep the better player for a good amount and are hoping it works out. The Giants defensive ends group consists of JPP, Owamagbe Odighizuwa, Kerry Wynn, Stanley Maponga, and Brad Bars. They will most likely address this group via draft.

Finally, the 27-year-old defensive end had a rough 2015 year with the lose of some fingers and putting a cast on his hand that hurts him from completing sacks and tackles, but now he has got a taste of how to play with it and I expect him, just like others to adjust and make it work. He should of at least finished the 2015 with 5 to 6 sacks, but his lack of finishing tackles left him with 1 sack in 8 games.

Prediction: JPP will get 7.5 sacks this year.
