Pierre-Paul received the Giants' franchise tag for the 2015 season Monday, Albert Breer of NFL Network reports.

Pierre-Paul was expected to receive the tag if the two sides couldn't reach a long-term contract extension prior to the deadline. Since the latter hasn't materialized, the former has. It's likely that Pierre-Paul won't sign the tag right away as the two sides continue to negotiate for a longer deal. If that doesn't occur, the 26-year-old would end up making $14.8 million in 2015. Pierre-Paul finished the 2014 campaign with 12.5 sacks, 77 tackles, and three forced fumbles, much improved over the 2013 season, when he was only able to take the field in 11 of 16 games and start six.

Pierre-Paul is expected to receive the Giants' franchise tag, should he fail to reach a long-term contract extension with the team by Mar. 2, ESPN.com reports.

Pierre-Paul posted a much-improved 12.5 sacks during his contract year last season and doing so has put JPP in a great position to cash-in this offseason. With the Giants looking to maintain their accomplished pass-rusher, Pierre-Paul is expected to either sign a long-term deal or be franchise tagged in the coming weeks. As a result, it appears Pierre-Paul will remain with the Giants next season, when he'll look to build on his resurgent campaign last term.

Pierre-Paul (neck) is active for Sunday's contest versus the Cardinals, Pat Hanlon of the Giants' official site reports.

In Monday's season-opening loss in Detroit, Pierre-Paul left the field for a time due to what was termed a "stinger" but eventually returned to action, finishing the game with four tackles (two solo). He's searching for his first sack since Week 10 of last season, but with the somewhat immobile Carson Palmer (shoulder) inactive, his replacement, Drew Stanton, may prove more difficult to bring down.
