  • Instant analysis of Bucs enormous trade with the Giants for Jason Pierre-Paul

    So, the addition of Pierre-Paul provides a glimmer of hope after the Bucs finished 5-11 in one of the most disappointing seasons they’ve had.

    The good news is, Pierre-Paul should certainly be able to provide a much-needed upgrade and help the Bucs establish a consistent pass-rush when the team returns to the field in their quest to the playoffs this fall.

    Pierre-Paul originally entered the league with the Giants in the 2010 Draft and spent his entire career with the Giants after he was drafted. During his time with the team,Authentic Damon Harrison Jersey, he was selected to the Pro Bowl two times (2011 and 2012). He also clinched a Super Bowl ring in the Giants’ Super Bowl XLVI win over the Patriots.

    Throughout his tenure with New York, he has registered 433 tackles,Authentic Janoris Jenkins Jersey, 13 forced fumbles and two interceptions., 58 sacks

    Pierre-Paul did have a set back when he lost his right index finger during a 4th of July fireworks incident back in 2015. However, he has managed to bounce back from the incident and emerge as an explosive pass-rusher in the league which is precisely what the Buccaneers so desperately need.

    Sending two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul to Tampa Bay for two draft picks gives the New York Giants much-needed salary cap space for 2019 and allows the Buccaneers to continue rebuilding a line that had the fewest sacks in the NFL last season.

    With the unexpected trade announced Thursday, the Giants take another step in their rebuilding under new general manager Dave Gettleman and the Bucs upgraded their defense in a bid to end a decade-long playoff drought.

    The Giants will get Tampa Bay's third-round pick (69th overall) in the draft in late April. The teams also will swap fourth-round picks,Womens Brad Wing Jersey, with the Bucs moving up to the 102nd pick and the Giants selecting 108th.

    "Jason is an elite-level edge rusher who will make an immediate impact on our defense," Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht said in a story posted on the team's website . "We are adding a two-time Pro Bowler who is passionate about the game and has established himself as one of the league's premier defensive ends."

    Later in the day,Authentic Devon Kennard Jersey, who missed the final 11 games with a broken foot., the Giants announced they had terminated the contract of wide receiver and special teams player Dwayne Harris

    While the Pierre-Paul trade only clears up a couple of million dollars in cap space this year,Authentic Muhammad Wilkerson Jersey, the benefit for the Giants - who were 3-13 last season - will be in 2019 when it sheds roughly $18 million in cap space. That will be important with safety Landon Collins and receiver Odell Beckham Jr. both possibly looking for new contracts.

    The effects will be more immediate for the Bucs, who were 5-11 last season and had 22 sacks.

    Pierre-Paul, who had 8? sacks last season and 58? since being drafted with the 15th pick overall in 2010, defensive end Vinny Curry and tackle Beau Allen. Former Bears tackle Mitch Unrein also was signed.,Womens Muhammad Wilkerson Jersey, joins a team that recently signed two members of the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles

    They join returning six-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Gerald McCoy on a Bucs' line that hasn't had a player finish with double-digit sacks since Simeon Rice in 2005.

    Not only does Pierre-Paul give the Bucs a pass rusher, the 29-year-old is an every-down player who has overcome a fireworks accident in 2015 that severely damaged his right hand. He signed a $62 million contract last year.

    "We appreciate everything Jason has done for the Giants," Gettleman said. "He was a fine player for us."

    Pierre-Paul had 68 tackles, 8? sacks and two forced fumbles last season. He has played in 111 regular-season games with 85 starts, including all 16 games in 2017. He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2011 and '12 and All Pro in 2011, and helped New York win a Super Bowl., when he had a career-high 16.5 sacks, the fourth-highest total in Giants history

    Pierre-Paul also forced 13 fumbles and recovered seven, returning each for a score. He also had defended 47 passes., including one he returned for a touchdown. He intercepted two passes

    The move also sends Pierre-Paul back to Florida. He attended the University of South Florida and played high school football in the state.

    The Giants are moving to a 3-4 defensive alignment under new coordinator James Bettcher,Womens Damon Harrison Jersey, although they will continue to use some 4-3 formations.

    This is Gettleman's second trade since replacing Jerry Reese. He acquired linebacker Alec Ogletree from the Los Angeles Rams for fourth and sixth-round draft choices.

    The Giants will have six picks in the draft,Womens Janoris Jenkins Jersey, including the second overall. They also have the second pick in the second round (No. 34), the Bucs' fourth-rounder and the second pick in the fifth round (No. 139). They traded their seventh-round pick to Pittsburgh last year for cornerback Ross Cockrell.,Authentic Brad Wing Jersey, two third-rounders (Nos. 66 and 69)

    Harris did not have a catch last season. He had played in all 16 games with one start in 2016 and was selected for the Pro Bowl as a special teamer.

    In his first season with New York in 2015, he played in 15 games with six starts and had a career-high 36 receptions for 396 yards and four touchdowns. He finished third in the NFL with a 28.7-yard average on 22 kickoff returns,Authentic Jonathan Casillas Jersey, including an 80-yard touchdown against the Jets., including a 100-yard touchdown return against Dallas. He also averaged 10 yards on 34 punt returns

    Harris was the third player in Giants' history with kickoff and punt return touchdowns in the same season,Womens Jonathan Casillas Jersey, the first in 60 years.

    Jason Pierre-Paul woke up Thursday morning as a prominent lynchpin of the Giants’ core. By lunchtime, he was a Tampa Bay Buccaneer.

    Gettleman now owns six total draft picks in April’s draft,Womens Devon Kennard Jersey, with two picks at the top of the third., including the No. 2 choice and four of the draft’s top 69 selections

    “We appreciate everything Jason has done for the Giants, and he helped our franchise win Super Bowl. We wish him well in the future.”,” Gettleman said in a team statement. “He was a fine player for us

    “Today is a bitter sweet day,” Pierre-Paul posted. “I have been blessed to be part of a world class organization and fans for the last 8 years. As I look back at my career with the NY Giants, I will always value the time I had here.”, I am filled with gratitude and appreciation for each . As of now I’m starting a new chapter in my life as a Tampa Bay Buccaneer

    The trade saves the Giants only $2.5 million against their 2018 salary cap, since the remaining $15 million on Pierre-Paul’s original $20 million signing bonus from last offseason’s extension immediately accelerates to impact this year’s cap. But it does clear scheduled $19.5 million 2019 cap hit and $17.5 million 2020 hit off the books.

    The Giants, have chosen defensive end Olivier Vernon ($17 million cap hit in 2018) over Pierre-Paul as a fit in new defensive coordinator James Bettcher’s 3-4 scheme. The trade opens the door to Gettleman possibly drafting N.C. State end Bradley Chubb with the second-overall pick or trading back a few spots and getting him., therefore

    And it clears money off the books as for potential contract extensions for stars receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and safety Landon Collins, who each are entering the final years of their rookie deals.
