The sawtooth correction on a good GPS will go down to a few hundred ps over a thirty or so ns range. If you are going to correct, you need a chip that is accurate to <100 ps over a 30 ns (> 300  tap) range. That’s a tough part to find. Next you need to worry about jitter in the delay line ….

Once you do all that, you still have a pretty messy PPS.
