Good morning, New York Giants fans! Let’s check the headlines to find out what is going on with the Giants on this wet Wednesday.

Non-exclusive tag for JPP

Something we didn’t really talk about in regards to the Jason Pierre-Paul situation is that the Giants have used the non-exclusive tag.

This means that JPP is free to negotiate with other teams when the free agency signing period begins next week, and the Giants have the right to match any offer he receives. If they choose not to match and Pierre-Paul signs a contract with another team, the Giants will receive two first-round draft choices as compensation.

The non-exclusive tag also opens the possibility of a sign-and-trade.

The Giants and Pierre-Paul have until July 15 to work out a long-term deal. If no deal is reached, Pierre-Paul would have to play the 2017 season under the terms of the franchise tender, expected to be about $17 million.

McAdoo speaks today

Giants coach Ben McAdoo is scheduled to speak to the media from the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis at 11:15 a.m. on Wednesday. Big Blue View will have a report as soon as a transcript becomes available.
