The Jets have previously stated their desire to lock up Wilkerson to a long-term deal. In 2014, Wilkerson totaled 56 tackles and six sacks.
"Muhammad has another year to go on his contract," Maccagnan said. "That's something we're going to discuss here in the offseason at some point in time with him. Obviously, for us, first we're going to work ourselves through the draft process. After that, that's something we're going to address going forward. I think for a lot of these things, it may be a process."
