Since Bucs defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul was injured in his car accident this summer, there has been speculation as to what Tampa Bay could do with the money they owed him — as his injury was sustained off the football field.
On Wednesday morning we got that question cleared up a bit with the news that Tampa has reworked Pierre-Paul’s deal.
The Bucs and DE Jason Pierre-Paul have agreed to a reworked contract that now expires after this season, per source. The Bucs cleared $4.4M in cap space, while JPP gets $10M+ in pay plus a path to FA in March. A compromise for both sides as JPP continues to rehab his neck.
