A bit of news from JPP
« on: April 20, 2017, 12:11:39 PM »
Jordan Raanan  @JordanRaanan
1m
JPP said he needed 4 procedures (2 abdominal, 2 groin) at the same time last year. Missed the final four games and the playoffs.

Seth Walder  @SethWalderNYDN
2m
JPP said he's down to 265 pounds and intends to play at that weight. Was 275 last year and 290 as a rookie, he said.

Ralph Vacchiano  @RVacchianoSNY
3m
JPP wouldn't say when he'll be able to get back on the field, though, or if he'll be ready for training camp.

Sounds like a DE could be higher on JR, BM & SS's draft wish list than we originally thought.  Sounds like JPP will be "non-100%" for a bit, maybe even into the start of the season...especially if he has any setbacks in his rehab. :suspious:

I'm not too worried about this because this would have been known at the time, and obviously the Giants weren't concerned enough to prevent them giving him the big contract.

I'd rather be a disappointed optimist than a vindicated pessimist

could be? It will be. I wouldnt be shocked if Michigan's Tack Charlton isnt on Reese's short list.

Oh Swell. I can see it now, he'll miss camp, limp into the preseason, get nicked up, and then fight health issues the rest of the season.  just the kind of news you want to hear from a guy who u just committed 40 million to. ~X(

I luv JR, but this contract has disaster written all over it. Redfaced

Sorry JPP...but  no need to be such a drama queen. 

You had hernias.  Recovery time 3 to 6 weeks.

my concern is that he hid ALL the surgeries from the Giants....just like he kept them in the dark initially with his hand
Regardless, we have him for the long term,giants won't rush him
Didn't strahan play at 265lbs. and was very effective??

Damn reporters here is what JPP actually said

Q: How do you feel coming off your surgery?

A: I feel good. I’m walking and I’m running. I’m here at OTA’s participating in every activity that they have. I’m OK.

It looks like politics is not the only venue for fake news.
