The New York Giants' decision to use their franchise tag on Jason Pierre-Paul probably won't sit well with either him or his agent. Pierre-Paul didn't want it. And if he doesn't end up with a long-term contract, he surely won't be happy.
The decision also tied up a dangerous amount of cap space into one position on the Giants' roster. They currently have $44 million (26 percent) tied up in three-fourths of their defensive line, with the fourth member (Johnathan Hankins) looking to cash in for himself when free agency starts.
