Jason Pierre-Paul wants to return to action as soon as he can with the New York Giants, and he will reportedly meet with the franchise early this week to sign his tender.

A report Sunday night, and he notes the entire thing hinges on Pierre-Paul passing his physical.

The Giants (4-3) are in good shape, leading in the NFC East without Pierre-Paul in the lineup. If Pierre-Paul is able to come back and make a meaningful contribution as the Giants head down the home stretch, then New York will have an excellent chance to finish with the conference crown.

This report is similar to the ones we heard last weekend, however, when Pierre-Paul was supposedly going to meet with the team and get his hand checked out by team doctors. The meeting never materialized, and at this point it seems foolish to put too much stock into rumors until we actually see the man making progress.

Recent reports peg Pierre-Paul’s potential return to action around the beginning of December. We’ll continue keeping an eye on this developing story to see if anything happens.
