We have been in contact with Jason and will be getting him further evaluated by our medical staff in the near future.”Pierre-Paul has not attended the Bucs voluntary workout program or minicamp held just day before the NFL draft.The Bucs traded for Pierre-Paul last season and he responded by becoming the first Tampa Bay player to record double-digit sacks in a season since Simeon Rice in 2005.It’s not the first time Pierre-Paul has had an off-field mishap. He lost several fingers in a fireworks accident on July 4 in 2015 but miraculously recovered and re-established himself as one of the NFL’s top pass rushers.
