New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is clearly not the same dominant player that he was two years ago  after undergoing offseason back surgery and he was honest with the media on Thursday .

“It’s really going to take the whole offseason next year to get back to my old, old ways — the old JPP,” said Pierre-Paul via Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.

The good news for Pierre-Paul is that he’ll have a chance to prove that he still has what it takes to be a great pass rusher in 2014 since that will be the final year of his rookie contract.  If he can return to his old form next season,  he’ll cash in during free agency in 2015.
