The New York Giants new regime has shipped out another expensive veteran, this time they have traded defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in exchange for a third round pick and a fourth round pick swap in the 2018 NFL Draft. As a New York Giants fan, I was always a huge fan of JPP, he is a great pass rusher and a very underrated run defender which is a facet of the game he has never gotten enough credit for during his great career. Trading JPP does make sense for the Giants, he has struggled with injuries and at times had his effort questioned, plus the Giants will be playing more of a hybrid and 3-4 defense in 2018 under new defensive coordinator James Bettcher where JPP’s talents would go to waste. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have needed pass rush help for seemingly a decade, so giving up a third round pick for a veteran defensive end makes sense, JPP will immediately help the Bucs generate a pass rush on the super talented quarterbacks in their division (Cam, Brees, Matty Ice). For the Giants, it’s another step towards rebuilding, jettisoning a high priced defender in exchange for another draft pick to replenish an organization devoid of young talent that will fit their new scheme.
