The New York Giants will be meeting with defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul today to discuss his future with the team.

Giants co-owner John Mara confirmed the defensive end was returning to the team at some point this week, but he wasn’t sure when. It appears that it will be happening later today.

According to Ian Rapoport, the two sides are expected to meet later today, with Pierre-Paul to take the all-important physical test, so that the Giants can evaluate him and his potential position in the team.

This means whether or not he suits up for their divisional clash in week one against Dallas Cowboys is still a mystery despite everything that has happened over the offseason.

Pierre-Paul has been involved in one of the highlighted stories of the NFL offseason, as the defensive end had his finger blown off after a fireworks incident during Fourth of July celebrations. Rapoport says contract issues are still remaining. The Giants originally had a $60 million long-term contract offer for the player, but they withdrew it after they heard of the incident.

However, a franchise tender worth $14.8 million is still on the table for Pierre-Paul. Whilst he will be under contract if he signs it, it means the Giants have the power to place him on the non-football injury list and not pay him for the first six weeks of the season.

Pierre-Paul will be hoping that the evaluation of him taking place today will mean the Giants don’t have to place him on the NFI list, so he can return to the field and be paid as soon as possible.
