Jason Pierre-Paul has one more big contract left, so where could he end up?

Jason Pierre-Paul has been getting after opposing quarterbacks in the NFL for a dozen years now. He spent his first eight seasons with the New York Giants, winning his first Super Bowl as a member of the 2011 team. After that, he has spent the last four years with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, helping them win their second Lombardi Trophy in franchise history two years ago.

While last season was a down year for him, Pierre-Paul is only one good season up to his standard of breaking the 100-sack threshold. Though he has missed games every now and then throughout his NFL career, Pierre-Paul is one of the most underrated edge rushers of his generation. The question remains if he will re-up with the Buccaneers on a new contract in this offseason cycle.

2022 will be his age-33 season out of South Florida. Even if he has flourished playing for Todd Bowles the last few years, Pierre-Paul could go to a team like the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams and play alongside an emerging star in Leonard Floyd. What this really comes down to is what he prioritizes more: Winning a third Super Bowl or securing the bag at all costs.

Pierre-Paul is young enough to have one, maybe two more Pro Bowl seasons left in the tank.
