JPP Makes a Comeback

Defensive end Jason Pierre Paul was the 15th overall pick in the 2010 draft and signed a five-year, 20 million dollar deal with Big Blue. Since 2010 JPP has been a valued defensive player on the team with 362 tackles, 50 sacks, 11 forced fumbles, and 2 interceptions returned for touchdowns. The star DE hit a wall in his career when he severely injured his right hand in a fireworks accident in July of 2015. This unfortunate event caused the amputation of his right index finger and tip of his right thumb. His middle finger was also severely damaged by the accident. Since the accident JPP has fought through this obstacle and shows great dedication to the New York Giants. Pierre Paul has used a variety of rehab tools to help better his condition which include soft putty for pinching and squeezing exercises, hand grippers to work individual fingers, pinch pins for coordination and playing basketball to apply impact to his hand. Recently JPP has stepped up his game and has shown Giants fans that he is still a threat to opposing offenses. In week 12 against the Browns he earned the title of defensive player of the week with 7 tackles, 3 sacks, 1 forced fumble and a 43 yard fumble recovery for a touchdown. It is clear that JPP is still a valuable player to the Ny Giants roster and is definitely one of a kind.
