It’s clear that Jason Pierre-Paul made a large mistake while launching fireworks on the fourth of July weekend but former Giants head coach Jim Fassel says that Pierre-Paul has faltered on some other decisions since being in the hospital.

“Ronnie Barnes the trainer tried to go see him and they wouldn’t let him go see him. That would bother me a lot,” Fassel told Armen and Levack on 104.5 The Team, in Albany, New York.

“You’ve paid him a lot of money, it’s been a great relationship … I would just leave word with his parents or whoever is closest to him that we’re disappointed we didn’t get a chance to see him. We are concerned about his health number one [and] we do wish that he would make contact with us as soon as he’s able to do that.”

Of course with Pierre-Paul not currently signed with the Giants and reportedly holding out on the franchise tag tender until he is ready to get back on the field, his representation is a big part in this as well.

“I would reach out to his agent and say, ‘What’s going on here? We’ve paid this guy a lot of money and we want him back … At some point in time we need to have some communication’.”

To the public’s knowledge, Pierre-Paul has not yet had contact with the franchise that he was drafted by in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft.

104.5 The Team’s Adam Schefter has indicated there’s a chance that Pierre-Paul could come back within two months, despite having his right index finger amputated less than a week after the holiday weekend.

Armen and Levack can be heard weekdays from 3 to 7p ET on ‘Your Home for New York Sports’, 104.5 The Team.
