Whether it¡¯s because he¡¯s feeling

  snubbed or not <a title="Authentic Sterling Shepard Jersey" href="" COLOR="MEDIUMSLATEBLUE">>Authentic Sterling Shepard Jersey</a> , Jason Pierre-Paul is ready to prove a point Sunday.The Buccaneers defensive end made that clear in his conference call with New York writers, after the Giants traded him for a third-round pick this offseason.“Honestly, I had this game checked off since I left there, so emotion¡¯s running big and I’m coming, man,¡± Pierre-Paul said , via Art Stapleton of the Bergen Record. ¡°I’m bringing the house down.”His motivation might have something to do with the reaction he got upon leaving the Giants after eight seasons. He said he got a call from General Manager Dave Gettleman telling him about the trade, and from some teammates, but no one else from the organization called. Stapleton reported that co-owner John Mara sent Pierre-Paul a text, but didn¡¯t hear back.¡°I wouldn¡¯t say [I was] hurt. But the fact that the only thing that I got was a phone call [from Gettleman], you know what I¡¯m saying â€?I didn¡¯t speak to no owners <a title="Youth Kareem Martin Jersey" href="">Youth Kareem Martin Jersey</a> , no nothing,¡± Pierre-Paul said. ¡°You know, obviously, I gave a hard eight years at the New York Giants, won a Super Bowl there, it¡¯s transition, but the only thing to get was a phone call â€?I wouldn¡¯t say I was hurt, it was just shocking. But at the end of the day, this is a business league, and at the end of the day, we¡¯ve got to do our jobs <a title="Youth Ray-Ray Armstrong Jersey" href="">Youth Ray-Ray Armstrong Jersey</a> , no matter what team you play for. You¡¯re a football player, you¡¯re a pro, you¡¯ve got to do the job to the best of your ability, and that¡¯s what I¡¯ve been doing.¡±After that much time, there¡¯s bound to be some degree of hurt feelings. But Pierre-Paul was the tip of the spear when it came to Gettleman getting rid of players signed by predecessor Jerry Reese.It¡¯s working out well for the Buccaneers, as Pierre-Paul already has 8.0 sacks. The Giants have 10 as a team. Also, Pierre-Paul gets to go against a guy Gettleman did want to spend money out (left tackle Nate Solder, who anchors a line which has allowed 32).¡°Numbers speak for themselves,¡± Pierre-Paul joked.Sunday, we¡¯ll see who has the last laugh.Report: Giants sign DT John Jenkins, waive DL/OLB Romeo Okwara The New York Giants¡¯ roster shuffle continues <a title="B.J. Hill Jersey" href="">B.J. Hill Jersey</a> , as the Giants have signed nose tackle John Jenkins, formerly of the Chicago Bears. Jenkins was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the third round of the 2013 draft. He played three and a half years with the Saints, going to the Seattle Seahawks in the 2016 season. Jenkins spent the 2017 season with the Chicago Bears. Never particularly prolific as a defender, the 6-foot-3 foot, 330-pounder has made his hay as a run stuffing nose tackle in 3-4 defenses. Fans have wondered who would back up Damon Harrison at the spot, and it seems they have their answer.Reports indicate that the Giants have waived DE/OLB Romeo Okwara in a corresponding roster move. The Giants originally signed Okwara as an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame before the 2016 season. He was largely buried on their depth chart that year, until Jason Pierre-Paul suffered a sports hernia and was lost for the season. Okwara got the start in Pierre-Paul¡¯s place, racking up five total tackles and a sack in a break-out game against the Dallas Cowboys. Okwara was never able to duplicate that success, though he did have a tackle and a sack against the Green Bay Packers in the play-offs that year.Stay tuned to Big Blue View for any more updates following the Giants¡¯ Tuesday workouts.
