NFL Market Share Production

Metric Recommendation: Jason Pierre-Paul’s injury history is strange. And it is clear from his lack of certain athletic qualities like flexibility that he’s a risk to rely on for consistent elite play. However, he has the size, height, and length advantages to make him a formidable matchup nightmare to most NFL lines. And has put up elite to near elite production seasons in the NFL. But the year after his freak accident to his hand saw a formidable drop to his production.

Thus, I would recommend a salary of 9,052,500 to 16,294,500 adjusting for the salary cap increase. This puts his floor and ceiling into perspective going forward. I would be cautious in paying him to become the player he was earlier in his career due to the accumulation of injuries. But he can still be a force with his innate size and athletic ability in the future.
