Jeez. I'd be hiding that thing too.
Now I know that he can probably still play football. Thats not really the point though. How does a guy that is about to get paid tens of millions of dollars blow his hand off? Can't you just ask one of the guys in your entourage to light it? I am sure JPP has a Turtle that would happily light his fireworks for a million bucks.
Pierre-Paul is obviously going to sign with a team eventually, whether that is the Giants or another team, but he isn't going to be the same player that he was before. He has said multiple times that he doesn't need a finger or a thumb to sack the quarterback. And he is right.
But I don't think that JPP understands the ripple effect that this causes. If he doesn't have as many fingers, he can't lift the same way. If he can't lift the same way, he won't have the same strength. If he doesn't have the same strength, he can't sack the quarterback.
PS- Anyone immediately think of Chubbs after looking at his hand?
