2015 NFL Free Agency: Top 5 Landing Spots For Jason Pierre-Paul
In 2011, the New York Giants went on an improbable postseason run and became the first team to win less than ten regular season games and win the Super Bowl. Stomping on the Atlanta Falcons in the Wild Card Round, shocking the heavily favored Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round, and upsetting the upstart San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game, the Giants were matched up with Tom Brady and the New England Patriots once again. After he orchestrated a game-winning touchdown drive in the final seconds of the game, Eli Manning and the offense were given the majority of the credit for the Giants' championship run.
However, it was the Giants' defense that deserved the credit for stifling opponents of every caliber down the stretch, led by their leader - the dynamic Jason Pierre-Paul. Pierre-Paul was voted a First-team All-Pro that season for recording 86 total tackles, 16.5 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles.
Pierre-Paul experienced a downturn in production in the next seasons, as he dealt with back injuries and questions regarding the consistency of his motor. This past season, he came up big down the stretch, recording nine of his 12.5 sacks in the last six games. He will certainly have a high asking price in free agency.
So which teams offer the best landing spots for Jason Pierre-Paul?
