Jason Andrew Pierre - Paul (born January 1, 1989),is an American football outside linebacker for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at South Florida and was drafted by the New York Giants in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft.

As part of the procedures, Pierre-Paul had his right index finger amputated. That's the most noticeable difference to his right hand from his left — one less finger.

“I could dwell on it, like, Damn, I wish I had that finger,” Pierre-Paul told SI, “but when I look in the mirror, I’m happy. Thank the Lord -- it could have been worse.”

Jason Pierre-Paul's career post-fireworks incident

Pierre-Paul didn't return to the field for the Giants until Week 9 of 2015, and he struggled in his first eight games back on the field, recording only one sack. But he bounced back the next two seasons, first with 7.0 sacks in 12 games in 2016 and then with 8.5 sacks in 2017. It was a decline from his 12.5 sacks in 2014, but it was more like the old Pierre-Paul back again.

The Giants signed Pierre-Paul to a four-year extension in the 2017 offseason, but they traded him to the Buccaneers in 2018 for draft capital. He had his best season post-fireworks incident in 2018, at least in regards to sacks, recording 12.5. An offseason car accident limited Pierre-Paul to 10 games in 2019, but he played in all 16 games again in 2020.

One staple of Pierre-Paul's game in recent years, even as he's aged and dealt with other injuries, has been not wanting to leave the field. He played at least 78 percent of snaps in every Tampa Bay game in 2020, usually approaching 90 percent of snaps played. Defensive linemen rarely stay on the field that much without being rotated, but Pierre-Paul appreciates his time in the game, maybe more than most.

"Reality is, when is the time to rest when you're playing football? Especially when you're trying to win a game," Pierre-Paul said in November. "Me personally, I'm not going to come out unless I feel like I need to come out. I think me and my coach bump heads a little bit with that – he's always trying to look out for me – but I'd rather stay in because I know in the heat of the moment, anything can happen in just those couple of seconds."
