02/16/12 - DE Jason Pierre-Paul as someone who believes that teammate Osi Umenyiora, who has one year at $3.975 million remaining on his current contract, should get a new contract from the team.
"I think it's very important," said Pierre-Paul last week during an appearance. "Give him what he wants, man."
Pierre-Paul, who had his coming out season this year, said he likes the current three-defensive end rotation that includes Umenyiora, Justin Tuck and himself and that he would hope to keep that rotation intact moving forward.
"Just us three defensive ends, we've got a couple more on the line, but I feel like we're all on there together, it's unstoppable," he said. "Who's going to stop us? We have the best defensive line in the country, and everybody sees that. So bring him back."
