Justin Tuck was teammates with Jason Pierre-Paul for multiple years in New York, and when Tuck who recently retired was asked about his former teammate he said he is proud of him overcoming the adversity.
“What I love about Jason is adversity hit with the accident and everybody kind of wrote him off,” Tuck said Monday. “I think he’s actually a better player now. And I say that from the perspective of he’s learning how to utilize all of his abilities. Whereas before I think he was more of a … one-trick pony is not the right word. I think he was relying on the one or two things that he did really, really well. I think now he’s become more of a complete player.”
“What I love about him is just how his character has changed,” Tuck added. “How he’s focused, how he’s put things in perspective in his life. That bodes well for him. So yeah, I really feel confident in him being the leader going forward.”
Is Pierre-Paul a better player without 10 fingers? He sure played well last season.
