The Washington Redskins signed him as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2001. He played in all 16 games as a rookie, with only eight starts. He recorded 52 tackles, one sack, and one interception during his rookie campaign. The interception came against Jake Plummer. Over the next two seasons, Pierce played sporadically, recording only 18 and 15 tackles respectively, during the 2002 and 2003 seasons. It was not until the 2004 season, his fourth in the league, that he played a complete season replacing the injured Micheal Barrow. That season Pierce logged a career substantial 114 tackles, 95 of them solo. He also had one forced fumble, one sack and two interceptions, including a select off Ken Dorsey returned 76 yards for a touchdown.
The New York Giants signed Pierce on March 3, 2005 to start at middle linebacker. He became the captain of the defense, and in 13 games, Pierce notched 100 tackles, 80 of them solo, two interceptions and one forced fumble returned for a touchdown. His 2005 season ended early as he suffered a leg injury, against the Philadelphia Eagles, and missed the final three standard season games and the Giants’ only postseason game, a 23-0 decline to the Carolina Panthers. Pierce aided as a communications intern on the Howard Stern Show on May 7, 2008. He stated he would like to pursue a career in broadcasting after his NFL career. Near the end of the working day’s show he asked to stay for the remainder of the week and Howard agreed.
