Muhammad Wilkerson to sign with Green Bay Packers

New York Jets

Pettine served in the same capacity for the Jets from 2009 to 2012 and coached Wilkerson during his first two years in the league.

The Packers will soon find out if Muhammad Wilkerson is right for them.

The 2018 Green Bay Packers are not your father's Green Bay Packers, or even your younger uncle's Green Bay Packers, because these Green Bay Packers are spending big early in free agency.

With Wilkerson now in the fold, the Packers have a formidable defensive line that also includes Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark. He took a one-year deal and will have a chance to prove he's the player he was.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky, a Cover 2 contributor, was first to report the news Tuesday night.

One can assume new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine had a say in this signing. He will also contribute to the pass rush - Wilkerson recorded double-digit sacks in two of his seven seasons with the Jets. The defensive tackle was benched for the final three games of the season after he was late to a team meeting, and as the relationship turned rocky it became obvious that Wilkerson would be hitting the free market.

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. Green Bay is hoping he can turn that around while still being an asset in the run game, in which he was the 23rd best.

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. The team terminated that contract after only two years.

His decline coincided with the new contract.
