Free Agent Defensive Lineman Muhammad Wilkerson Picks Packers

I'll wait to see how Wilkerson's contract comes out financially before giving the Packers an "A" grade on this signing.

According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Packers and defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson agreed to a one-year deal worth only $5 million, with another $3 million available in incentives. Mike Pettine, the Packers' new defensive coordinator, was Wilkerson's defensive coordinator with NY when he was drafted in the first round in 2011. Wilkerson has remained a solid contributor in recent years, but the Jets didn't feel his play justified his salary.

One can assume new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine had a say in this signing.

They will need to address the cornerback position at some point, but Gutekunst is well aware.

Wilkerson tweeted that he's looking forward to teaming with Daniels. Eventually, the Jets had enough and he was a healthy scratch for the last three games of the 2017 season.

The Jets made a decision to keep him off the field for the remainder of the season because they were concerned about a potential injury, which could have resulted in the team being on the hook for his 2018 salary. By cutting him, the Jets saved $11 million.

Wilkerson first came into the National Football League in 2011 as a first round pick of the Jets.

Wilkerson peaked in 2015, when he recorded a career-high 12 sacks and was named to his first Pro Bowl.

His decline coincided with the new contract.

Wilkerson, 28, dealt with ankle and shoulder injuries while managing just eight sacks over the last two reasons. Privately, team officials questioned whether he still had a passion for the game.
