Tampa Bay Buccaneers outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul posted on his personal instagram account that he underwent minor knee surgery on Wednesday.
On a separate post, Pierre-Paul said he played at just 70 percent this season, and it’ll be scary to see what he can do at 100. Pierre-Paul was still able to win his second Super Bowl championship this year after the Bucs defeated the Chiefs 31-9 in Super Bowl LV.
While playing in all 20 games this season including the playoffs, Pierre-Paul often missed a lot of practice towards the end of the year due to the ailing knee injury.
Pierre-Paul was still a force as a pass rusher for the Bucs, though, leading the team with 9.5 sacks and also recorded 55 tackles, a career high four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. He even had two interceptions in pass coverage along with six pass breakups.
Pierre-Paul joins quarterback Tom Brady and running back Ronald Jones as players that have had minor procedures done following the Super Bowl LV victory.
With one year remaining on his contract, Pierre-Paul will look to repeat on a great year, this time at full health, as the Bucs go for two straight Super Bowls.
