The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have reportedly agreed to terms with DE/OLB Jason Pierre-Paul. Pierre-Paul will remain with Tampa Bay on a 2 year, $27 millon deal per ESPN’s Adam Schefter
The move is another in an effort to keep last year’s rising defensive unit intact for the Bucs. Earlier on Monday, Schefter reported that Tampa Bay applied the franchise tag to retain Shaq Barrett. The biggest unknown going forward remains what will happen with DT Ndamukong Suh.
Pierre-Paul missed 6 games in 2019 due to a neck injury sustained in an offseason car accident. However, he made a substantial impact in his first season with the Bucs in 2018. That season, he played in all 16 games and recorded 12.5 sacks. The 2 time pro bowler spent his first 8 seasons with the New York Giants after calling Raymond James Stadium home in college with the University of South Florida.
