According to reports, the New York Giants are comfortable with the situation their defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is in, and they're in the process of negotiating a deal.
Pierre-Paul has been out of football action since last season due to a Fourth of July fireworks incident which occurred during the offseason. He lost a finger and damaged other parts of his hand.
This raised major concerns over his football career, as many believed he wouldn't be able to play at the same level in the NFL again as he once did. The 26-year-old is a former first round pick and a two-time Pro Bowler.

According to a report by Gregg Rosenthal of Around The NFL: "The Giants are "comfortable" with where Pierre-Paul is physically after examining his hand this week. The two sides are now negotiating a deal, the final step to bringing Pierre-Paul back on the roster."
The report also said the Giants could get a roster exception for him to start practicing from Tuesday if they are able to sign him to a one-year deal.
The NFC East side have managed to cope without Pierre-Paul so far this season, as they currently sit on a 4-3 record.
However, he would be welcomed back into the frame instantly due to the fact the team is in need of some defensive improvement, as they're currently ranked 29 in the NFL in yards allowed on defense.
It appears Pierre-Paul's return to the NFL is coming up soon. We'll finally get to see how much damage the injury has done to his game.
