The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have made another big move, trading for Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

 

 

The deal will reportedly send Pierre-Paul and a 2018 4th round pick to Tampa Bay in exchange for a 2018 3rd round pick and 4th round pick.

Tampa Bay residents may remember JPP from his days at the University of South Florida where he played on the defensive line.

Pierre-Paul has been with the New York Giants since 2010 and had 8.5 sacks and 48 tackles last season. Back in 2011, the 2-time Pro Bowler logged a career high 16.5 sacks, something the Bucs were dead last in last season.

He also brings Super Bowl experience as he earned a ring with the G-men in Super Bowl XLVI.

The move comes just three days after the Bucs signed DE Vinny Curry.
