Jason Pierre-Paul: 'I Would Love To Be A Giant For Life'

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Jason Pierre-Paul is a fixture in the Giants' organization.

And if it's up to him, he'll retire in New York.

"Yeah, if I can stay here, I would love to be a Giant for life," the defensive end told reporters on Wednesday. "I don't know what the future has."

Back in November, JPP said, "If I'm here, I'm here. If I'm not, I'm not."

The two-time Pro Bowler is eligible for free agency after the season. The 25-year-old was the Giants' first-round pick (15th overall) in 2010 out of South Florida and was a key contributor on the Super Bowl XLVI-winning team.

The 2011 All-Pro has struggled for much of the season, but he has come on strong as of late. He's recorded  3 1/2 sacks over the last two games.

"All I am thinking about is going through the offseason and getting better," Pierre-Paul said. "Finding out my mistakes this year and watching what I can correct. How fast can I get to the quarterback? How can I play the run better?

"Just going to look at my film work and see what I can do better next year. That is my main goal. I am not worried about my contract."

The 6-foot-5, 278-pounder has 61 combined tackles, seven sacks, two forced fumbles and fumble recovery in 13 games.
