Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul gets the franchise tag as he and the New York Giants work out a long-term deal.

The New York Giants placed their franchise tag on Jason Pierre-Paul on Monday.

According to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post, keeping Pierre-Paul will cost the Giants $17 million, which they likely can’t afford since it would be difficult to sign free agents. The two sides have until July 15 to agree to a long-term contract. The defensive end will play on the franchise tender if no deal is reached.

The Giants star said after the Giants lost to the Green Bay Packers in the wild-card game that he doesn’t want to play on a one-year deal.

“I’m not playing on no one-year deal,” he said. “I’ve proved it. I’ve shown it. There is not really another guy like me out here doing it with 7.5 fingers still.”

This isn’t the first time that the defensive end has been given the franchise tag as he was given it in 2015. This past season he played on a one-year deal that was worth just under $10 million and had seven sacks in 12 games.

Pierre-Paul is ranked 10 on Around the NFL’s top 101 free agents list. He also made the list last offseason. It will be interesting to see if Pierre-Paul and Big Blue can reach a deal.
