So while being a fan, waiting for the players for autographs by the parking lot; one player I was lucky enough to get an autograph from was Jason Pierre-Paul. It only took 17 weeks, but who’s counting.

Holding a quick nonchalant conversation, I asked: “You coming back next season“?

Smiling and showing off a grill that shined like his personality, he said,

“If they want me back, hell yeah I’ll be here!”

In 29 games with Tampa Bay, the 10-year pro has 76 tackles, 21 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, and 3 pass deflections. Since returning in Week 8, he racked up 8.5 sacks and 2 FF, and 24 tackles. Since coming to Tampa, the energy and focus that he brings are why he is a leader in the locker room. He is a Un-Restricted Free Agent.

My advice: Bring the man back

Playing couch GM for a moment, but RE-SIGN him to at least another one-year deal. We all know he’s worth the money.
