Jets keep DL Muhammad Wilkerson through 2015


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9:24 am ET) The Jets have exercised their fifth-year option on defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson, Newsday reported. He's now slated to be a free agent following the 2015 season. The extension is worth nearly $7 million. 

Muhammad Wilkerson not planning to hold out


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/11/2014) Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson said he will not hold out this summer if the team picks up the fifth-year option in his current contract instead of signing him to a more lucrative long-term deal, reports the New York Post.

Wilkerson said talks about a long-term contract are ongoing between his agent and the Jets, and he said he wants to be a "Jet for life."

"I'm not holding out. My agent is talking with (GM John) Idzik, and that's all I can say," Wilkerson said. "I have nothing to do with that. I'm just going to let him take care of that. That's his job. I'm just here to play ball. It is what it is. If [a long-term deal] happens, it happens. I don't control what goes on upstairs."

Wilkerson is scheduled to earn $1.2 million in 2014. Per terms of the CBA, Wilkerson, the 30th pick in the 2011 draft, is in line for $5.25 million-$6 million in 2015 under the team option.


Muhammad Wilkerson: I won't hold out

"It will be taken care of, definitely," Wilkerson said of his contract situation, per ESPN.com. "But all that holdout and all that other talk that people were saying and everything -- I never said anything like that. I’m not going to hold out. It’s not something I want; it’s not something I’m thinking about. I’m going to show up like everybody else and do what I’m told."

Wilkerson had 64 tackles, 10.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception last season.
