Adding a few pounds while not losing his agility is the key.
If JPP can do that he will help make the Giants front four more stout against the run.

I agree, it could be helpful, particularly if he is adding power and strength.
The key will be if he retains speed and agility, which for the most part our trainers are usually able to facilitate.

It puts him in a similar size to Mario Williams.

I find the different opinions on JPP bulking up compared to Bennett very ironic. Both are almost the same size and have similar bulk ups. JPP is ok yet Bennett is seen by some as being overweight and under conditioned. It's quite laughable.

The other aspect to point out that this is the only time you can easily add a little bulk, before the serious workouts begin with a ton of running and conditioning.

The way I see it, we have an excellent coaching structure. If players are working hard within the system, it will usually be fine

He's a monster. The pass rush has been very good for a few years now, but I think they will be at their best this year. A healthy Osi and Tuck, with an experienced JPP; and what should be a very solid rest of the defense. Those three are going to be running wild this year. I can't wait.

The Giants may need that added bulk if they keep losing defensive tackles.

I like the Marcus Thomas signing. I think he'll do well for us against the run in a rotation.
