The Jacksonville Jaguars need to upgrade their defensive line this offseason, but one place they won't be doing it is with New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Giants will reportedly franchise tagging Pierre-Paul for an estimated one-year contract worth $15 million if the two sides can't agree on a long-term deal.

Dan Graziano, who covers the Giants for ESPN, said he doesn't believe a long-term deal will be reached "and Pierre-Paul's camp is bracing for the franchise tag."

Pierre-Paul finished the 2014 season with 12.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, and six batted passes.
