  • Raiders lose out on DT Mo Wilkerson, signs with Packers

After seven seasons with the New York Jets, defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson agreed to a deal with the Green Bay Packers, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reported Tuesday.

The former first-round pick was part of a defensive line many thought would be dominant. A team like Green Bay can afford to take a risk on Wilkerson to see if that player who earned a big deal is still in there. The deal is reportedly worth a maximum of $8 million, per NFL Network's Jason La Canfora. Pettine served in the same capacity for the Jets from 2009 to 2012 and coached Wilkerson during his first two years in the league. It was a major point of contention when the Packers switched general managers and put Brian Gutekunst in charge this offseason. The Jets went 10-6, and NY rewarded their defensive tackle with a five-year, $86 million dollar deal. Wilkerson visited the Packers two days later, but he also made visits to the Saints, Chiefs and Redskins before choosing the Packers.

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.

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.

Wilkerson has proved to be a disruptive force against both the pass and the run when healthy and motivated, which could make him a steal of a signing.

The last time Wilkerson was in Green Bay, he was ejected for fighting.

It's fair to say Mike Daniels is pleased with the signing.
