On Monday night, the New York Giants host one of the hottest teams in the NFL – the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
One of the biggest storylines headed into the game will be Jason Pierre-Paul facing off against his former team. The longtime Giants star reignited his career with the Buccaneers.
Now he’ll have the opportunity to take on his former team. However, much has changed since JPP last suited up in blue. He lamented not being able to see his former quarterback – Eli Manning.
JPP said he still has love for the Giants, but that won’t get in the way of his plans for the opposition this weekend.
So what are his plans? To destroy the Giants, of course.
Here’s what JPP had to say about facing his former team, via NorthJersey.com:
“I’m happy to play Daniel Jones. Eli’s not there no more, so I won’t have to pick him up and say ‘Eli, man, you good?'” Pierre-Paul said Friday in a Zoom call with reporters. “I’m coming for their necks, and they know that. Jason Pierre-Paul ain’t going nowhere. I’m going to Monday Night Football and going to destroy the Giants. That’s what I want to do as an individual, you know what I mean, but I still have love for ‘em. Period.”
Pierre-Paul is in the midst of a great season. The former Giants pass rusher leads the Buccaneers in sacks so far this season with 5.5.
He revamped his career in Tampa Bay and looks to be ready to destroy his former team this weekend.
