Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson reacts to reported Jordan signing


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) The reported signing of a long-term deal by Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan apparently has Jets counterpart Muhammad Wilkerson a bit peeved.

Wilkerson, who has been seeking a similar contract from his team, responded via Twitter, "Yup I see how that works."

Both players were taken in the first round of the 2011 draft. Wilkerson has declined to participate in the voluntary portion of the Jets' offseason program and is due to earn $6.9 million this season, which is far less than he would command on the open market.

The Jets have shown no urgency to sign Wilkerson, particularly since drafting highly touted Leonard Williams in the first round a month ago.

Wilkerson has been among the most productive linemen in the sport since arriving in the NFL. He has averaged 63 tackles and seven sacks over the last three years.

Still no contract extension for Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/19/2015) Despite some optimism from the team, Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson remains without a contract extension. Therefore, he will not participate in the team's OTA and will work out on his own. 

Heading into the final year on his contract and due to make $6.97 million, Wilkerson is not pleased with how the negotiations have gone.

"We're continuing to have dialogue sporadically, but it’s got to be something that works for both sides," owner Woody Johnson said per the New York Post.

The team expressed an interest in extending his contract, but so far there has been no signs of an extension. Plus, the team drafted Leonard Williams in the first round, which does pose some questions regarding Wilkerson's future with the Jets, according to ESPN.com.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2015) Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson has long been talked about as a potential trading chip.

"We're not actively shopping Mo," Maccagnan said, via ESPN.com. "It's not part of our plans. But, again, his name comes up periodically at times, but nothing active right now."

Wilkerson has been productive for the Jets but is entering the final year of his contract. The Jets also just drafted Leonard Williams, who figures to earn some immediate playing time. 

"Mo's a good player, he's part of this organization and he's currently under contract," Maccagnan said. "We'd like to keep him in this organization. We just have to go through a process with him to figure out, you know, if we can find a middle ground."


Jets pick could lower asking price for DE Muhammad Wilkerson


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
