Packers to land Muhammad Wilkerson

Packers to land Muhammad Wilkerson

Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst and cap manager Russ Ball delivered a big-time talent on defense at a price point everyone should be able to agree on.

The Packers have agreed to terms with Wilkerson, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky.

Imagine a defensive line featuring Muhammad Wilkerson, Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark. Green Bay will continue to use a 3-4 scheme under new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, who coached Wilkerson early in his Jets tenure.

Wilkerson, 28, is a seven-year veteran with the New York Jets.

Although there are some concerns regarding Wilkerson's willingness to give 100 percent game in and game out, the Packers could have a bargain on their hands if he lives up to his potential.




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. "#Packers should be getting a motivated player".

Wilkerson, 28, was released by the Jets after a tumultuous 2017 season during which he had just 3.5 sacks, his lowest total since his rookie season. The bigger positions of need are at cornerback and outside linebacker. In 2016, he was rewarded with a five-year, $86 million contract that included $37 million fully guaranteed at signing.

Like the Graham deal, let's see if the Packers structured it so they can get out and have enough to pay their franchise quarterback.

After a 12-sack season with the Jets in 2015, Wilkerson signed an $86 million extension to stay in NY.

His best years were in 2013 and 2015, with 10.5 and 12 sacks respectively, but has only eight sacks the past two seasons.
