The New York Giants are trading defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

Reports say Tampa also gets in a fourth round pick from New York. In exchange, the Giants will get a the Buc's third and fourth round selections. Schefter reports that by removing JPP from the books, the Giants avoid a $17.5 cap hit.

Pierre-Paul has played all eight of his NFL season with Big Blue, totaling 58 sacks, 13 Forced Fumbles and a pair of Pro Bowl selections. His eight sacks led the team in 2017.

The Giants are coming off a 3-13 season and hold the third overall pick in next month's draft.

New coach and GM, Pat Shurmur and David Gettleman, respectively, have been active in free agency. Among the moves, the signing of former Arizona DE Josh Mauro, and the re-signing of end Kerry Wynn. Additionally, they still have Olivier Vernon and Romeo Okwara.
