ESPN's Ed Werder is reporting that injured New York Giants star defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul will not sign his franchise tender with the team until he’s confident he can play and pass a physical.

"Source says JPP won't sign franchise tender until confident he can pass physical to prevent Giants from putting on NFI, having full control," Werder writes.

The Giants had been expected to place their standout defensive end on the non-football injury list until he gets healthy, a move that would give the team full control over whether or not he misses regular-season games and whether or not he gets paid for games he might miss.
