The organization also understands that despite selecting seventh overall, there's a slim chance they can draft highly-coveted Bradley Chubb, the one defensive end draft prospect expected to make a Day 1 impact. According to OvertheCap.com, Jason Pierre-Paul was a $17.5 million cap hit this season. In addition to the trade for Pierre-Paul, who had 8.5 sacks past year for the Giants, the Buccaneers have also signed former Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Vinny Curry.

Pierre-Paul had had 68 tackles, eight sacks and two forced fumbles last season.

Pierre-Paul, who had 8½ sacks last season and 58½ since being drafted with the 15th pick overall in 2010, joins a team that recently signed two members of the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles, defensive end Vinny Curry and tackle Beau Allen. Eli Manning is in the twilight of his career, but we've seen the Giants put really good teams around him before and then he goes and wins a Super Bowl. He would immediately become one of the better players on the Giants defense.

However, bringing in Bettcher nearly certainly means that the team will be moving to a 3-4 defense.

This move comes just one offseason after the Giants inked JPP to a lucrative 4-year, $62 million contract.

With Cleveland owning the top pick and the Jets trading up to the third pick, it appeared that the Giants had prime real estate for a blockbuster trade given that the front office doesn't seem to believe they need a quarterback.

However, Pierre-Paul infamously suffered a fireworks accident in 2015 which saw him have his right index finger amputated. Pierre-Paul's salary will jump to 13 million in 2019.

After Schefter's initial tweet about the trade rumors, more information arrived about the deal from NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport. With Gerald McCoy on the inside, the pass rush should be much more risky this season.

The trade also reportedly includes the teams swapping their fourth-round draft picks, which is a slight benefit to the Buccaneers.

"Thank you to the Giants for the eight years I spent there", Pierre-Paul told Jones. They were also last in the National Football League in sacks, with just 22. The Giants are also weighing several college quarterbacks.
