Duggan NJ.com: Giants NFL Mock Draft 2017 roundup: The latest picks, rumors, buzz including ESPN's Todd McShay

King MMQB: Dwight Clark Has ALS
The former 49er, famous for making ‘The Catch,’ stunned the football community Sunday when he announced he has the incurable disease. Plus the Beast Mode-Raiders rumor, a bad free-agency trend and more
Code:

"When Jason Pierre-Paul permanently disfigured his right hand in July 2014 fireworks accident, he missed out on a chance for a huge long-term contract. Instead, the Giants paid Pierre-Paul $8.7 million on a one-year deal, and then $9.7 million for 2015. Over those two years, he played 20 games, missed 12, had eight sacks, and made $18.4 million.
On Friday, the Giants signed Pierre-Paul for four more years, a deal that Pro Football Talk reports will be worth $35 million in the first two years, when virtually all of the guaranteed money will be paid. In all, a damaged Pierre-Paul, who has averaged one sack per 10 quarters since his accident, is being paid like a premier rusher. In the first four years after the accident, Pierre-Paul will be paid approximately $53.4 million—even though there’s no assurance he’ll ever be a premier pass-rusher again. That average of $13.35-million per year over four years is more than some of the best and most productive defensive ends and outside linebackers in football, including Michael Bennett, Cam Jordan, Cam Wake, Everson Griffen, Ryan Kerrigan and Bruce Irvin.
The Giants have done way more than right by Pierre-Paul."
