New York Giants: Five Players They Should Let Go In Free Agency

Jason Pierre-Paul

This one is, admittedly, tough to swallow. Jason Pierre-Paul was one of the premier pass rushing talents in the NFL, most known for his incredible 2011 season, where he recorded 16.5 sacks and led the Giants to the Super Bowl.

However, the last seven months have not been good for the USF product, who lost two fingers in a fireworks accident on the Fourth of July. JPP’s contract negotiations then soured, and he returned with a club on his hand in the second half of the season. Pierre-Paul’s hand and tempermant present the Giants with a possible liability, which is why they may be better served parting ways with their mercurial pass rusher.

Another thing to keep in mind: Pierre-Paul just had another hand surgery to start the new year. Risk, personified.
