The New York Giants have used their franchise tag on Jason Pierre-Paul.

The sides have until July 15 at 4 p.m. ET to agree to a long-term contract.

Pierre-Paul has stated before he does not want to play on a one-year deal.

"I'm not playing on no one-year deal," Pierre-Paul said after he missed the Giants' season-ending loss to the Green Bay Packers in the playoffs. "I've proved it. I've showed it. There is not really another guy like me out here doing it with 7½ fingers still."

Pierre-Paul played this past season on a one-year prove-it deal worth just under $10 million.
