Pierre-Paul done with Giants?

Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul's future with the Giants appears very clouded, according to reports.

The former USF standout, a free agent who was New York's No. 1 pick in 2010, is unlikely to be re-signed, according to Giants Wire.

Pierre-Paul suffered an injury to his right hand in a fireworks injury on July 4, and his right index finger was amputated.

The injury limited him to eight games and 26 tackles with just one sack, all career lows.

He made $7.35 million last year, and the team might be willing to re-sign him to a much lower deal, according to the reports. If he leaves, the only defensive ends on the roster would be former USF standout George Selvie and undrafted rookie Brad Bars.

LEONARD JOHNSON CUT: The Patriots released former Bucs defensive back Leonard Johnson. The former Largo High standout appeared in four regular-season games (three starts) in 2015 and made seven tackles with three passes defensed. Johnson did not play in either postseason game.

BRINDZA tears achilles: Former Bucs kicker Kyle Brindza, who signed with the Jets this month, tore his right Achilles tendon last week and is likely out for the season. He was traded to the Bucs in August and was waived in October after going 6-for-12 on field goals and 6-for-8 on extra points.

HALL OF FAME GRANT: The Pro Football Hall of Fame has a received a $2.5 million grant from the foundation established by late Bills owner Ralph Wilson. The money will fund a variety of programs and projects, including a holographic theater.
