Steve Tisch: Giants' co-owner says 'nothing new' on Jason Pierre-Paul

New, comments

Tisch says "it's complicated," and seems to indicate the Giants still have little information.

Ever since Jason Pierre-Paul was injured in a Fourth of July fireworks mishap, it has been pretty much radio -- and Internet, TV, newspaper, telegraph, telegram and any other form of communication you can think of -- silence. A week before New York Giants players report for 2015 training camp that has not changed, with c-owner Steve Tisch telling Newsday that "there's nothing new" regarding Pierre-Paul.

We know, of course, that Pierre-Paul had his right index finger amputated. We think we know he also suffered a fractured thumb. We know the Giants have not rescinded the $14.8 million franchise tag offer. We know Pierre-Paul hasn't signed it. We don't really know much else, and Tisch made it sound as though there still has been little or no contact between Pierre-Paul and the team.

From Newsday:

"It's been printed and it's very sincere: Above anything else I hope he's healing. I hope he will play great football in the future. I hope he's getting the best medical care available to him and I really personally and from my position with the Giants wish him all the best and I look forward to seeing him sooner than later.

"It's complicated, as you know, but [team president] John Mara and I, Coach [Tom] Coughlin, [general manager] Jerry Reese, all the team, his teammates, wish only the best for him."
