Report: Packers to Sign Former Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson
A couple years ago, Muhammad Wilkerson received a five-year, $86 million deal after proving to be one of the most dominant defensive linemen in the National Football League in 2015. Wilkerson visited the Packers two days later, but he also made visits to the Saints, Chiefs and Redskins before choosing the Packers.
A one-year commitment at $5 million is hardly a steep price to pay for a former Pro Bowler, regardless of the impact Wilkerson provides in 2018. Wilkerson will join the defensive line with Mike Daniels, Kenny Clark, Dean Lowry and Montravius Adams.
He'll also get to do playing with his old defensive coordinator Pettine, who was on the Jets with Rex Ryan when Wilkerson was drafted by NY back in 2011. Coach Mike McCarthy fired defensive coordinator Dom Capers in January after nine seasons. The longtime Jet recorded just eight sacks in the past two seasons, and he struggled to consistently generate pressure.
They will need to address the cornerback position at some point, but Gutekunst is well aware. Eventually, the Jets had enough and he was a healthy scratch for the last three games of the 2017 season. By then, the organization had decided Wilkerson's fate. The deal, reportedly for three years, makes up for the loss of longtime wide receiver Jordy Nelson, whom it was announced Green Bay was releasing nearly immediately after the Graham news broke. In 2016, he was rewarded with a five-year, $86 million contract that included $37 million fully guaranteed at signing.
The 2011 first-round pick made the Pro Bowl for the first time in 2015 after registering 64 tackles and a career-high 12 sacks. Privately, team officials questioned whether he still had a passion for the game.
