Free-agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul (Giants) may be pursued by the Atlanta Falcons if he hits free agency.
Huddle Up: Only the Bengals, with 20, had fewer sacks last season than the Falcons' 22, and the team could again look to a Giant DE -- a la Osi Umenyiora -- for pass-rushing help this offseason. Via free agency, the draft -- or both -- expect the Falcons to add a couple players who can turn up the pressure on opposing QBs.

New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul's contract was voided Friday, Feb. 6, which officially makes him a free agent.
Huddle Up: JPP -- coming off a 12.5-sack, 77-tackle season -- will only be 26 in February and the Giants will have to make a decision on whether to give him the long-term deal he's looking for, retain him under the franchise tag or let him hit the market. It's a tough decision on a player who's been largely productive when healthy but also has had injury issues and has been anything but consistent during his five seasons with the G-Men.

New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul (neck) is back on the field in the second quarter of the Week 1 game against the Detroit Lions Monday, Sept. 8. He left for X-rays after suffering a neck injury in the first quarter, and everything checked out fine.
Huddle Up: Good news for the Giants could ill-afford to be without their top pass rusher after getting riddled for two passing touchdowns in the first quarter Monday night.

New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul wants to silence his critics after a lost season due to a surgically repaired back in 2013. 'I got something to prove this year, and I'm going to shut a whole bunch of people up,' he said. 'I want to shut them up, you know what I'm saying? It's not even going to be new to me. I'm confident in the way I play my game, you know what I'm saying? When I'm at the top of my game, it's ridiculous. Everyone has seen me there before.'
Huddle Up: We certainly saw it in the Giants' Super Bowl season of 2011, when he recorded 16.5 sacks and 93 total tackles. In the two seasons since then, he's had only 8.5 sacks and 93 total tackles.
