Jason Pierre-Paul injures hand in fireworks accident-Forfeits his $60 million contract


By The Bleacher Report

New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul reportedly suffered a hand injury while lighting fireworks on the Fourth of July. However, the injuries reportedly are not career-threatening.

Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reported on Pierre-Paul’s status, passing along that the defensive end was still at the hospital, with no update on his status.

On July 5, Adam Schefter and Dan Graziano of ESPN described the severity of Pierre-Paul’s injuries: “A source told ESPN.com that Pierre-Paul has severe burns on his palm and tips of three fingers, and one finger is being tested for nerve damage. He didn’t lose any fingers, and doctors believe there will be no permanent damage or disfigurement of his hands.”

Schefter also said “early indications” were that the injuries would not be “career-threatening.”

TMZ.com originally reported on the accident, saying Pierre-Paul seriously hurt his thumb and some of his fingers in South Florida without specifying which hand it was.

While the Giants wait for the latest word on their star’s condition, the team reportedly withdrew its $60 million contract offer, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, via colleague Kevin Patra.

“Given the timing of the event and the apparent judgment displayed, the Giants do not believe a long-term offer is in the best interest of those involved at this point”, Patra reported, via Rapoport.

However, a source told Mark Cannizzaro of the New York Post that Rapoport’s report was “100 percent false.”

Regardless of the state of the offer Rapoport noted Pierre-Paul wasn’t planning to accept the offer prior to the accident.

  2. , the fate of small company (start-up) is mostly the takeover/sale strategy. And in this context, the patent is just another asset valuing the start-up. So, you see even though the rhetoric surrounding the patent system might mention the innovation as purpose, its just another business tool. And in business, the priority is not the society but the stockholders…
