Jason Pierre-Paul denies signing new four-year Giants deal

"I ain't signed nothing," was the reply from Jason Pierre-Paul after reports suggested he had signed a four-year New York Giants deal.

Jason Pierre-Paul has denied claims he has signed a new four-year contract with the New York Giants.

New York placed the franchise tag on Pierre-Paul, 28, after he recorded a team-high seven sacks as well as 53 combined tackles in 12 games in 2016, playing on a one-year contract.

But after reports emerged that he had put pen to paper on a new deal with the Giants, Pierre-Paul denied that was the case.

"What the heck is people talking about I ain't sign nothing," he wrote on Twitter.

"That's New York media for yah!! [sic] They always want the story first and they got it wrong."

Though he suffered a season-ending groin injury in week 13, it served as a bounce-back season for the seven-year veteran after he suffered severe hand injuries in a 2015 fireworks accident. 

Pierre-Paul has said he will not play the 2017 NFL season under a one-year tender deal.
