After suffering from a fractured vertebrae in 2019, Pierre-Paul made a full recovery mid-season and returned to the team to assist in the defense’s turnaround. Pierre-Paul is an integral part of this Buccaneers defense leadership wise, as well as his play on the field.
Michael Silver reported that the Baltimore Ravens were also interested in Pierre-Paul.
