Green Bay Packers: Defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson to sign with Pack

Report: Packers to Sign Former Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson

But Wilkerson had already visited Green Bay, and he was on his way to Washington.

Wilkerson, who was released by the New York Jets earlier this month, will be reunited with new Packers defensive coordinator Mike Pettine.

With Wilkerson now in the fold, the Packers have a formidable defensive line that also includes Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark. Damon Harrison left in free agency, Sheldon Richardson was traded and now Wilkerson is gone to Green Bay.

According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the deal is worth $5 million plus $3 million in incentives.

Muhammad Wilkerson embarked on a four-city tour over the past several days but has made a decision, and it turns out the first stop on that two-time zone sojourn was telling.

In the mean time, fans can look forward to seeing Kidman reprise the role of Celeste on Little Lies when it returns for Season 2. Nicole's new role will see her play Grace Sachs, a happy wife and mother who's on the brink of publishing her first novel.

Wilkerson is clearly betting on himself to rehab his value around the league by playing for a year under Packers defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, his coach in NY for the first two seasons of his NFL career.

While the 28-year-old end enjoyed a dominant stretch with the Jets during the first several years of his career, he was not productive for the team after signing a massive extension prior to the 2016 season. The Jets released him after his last two seasons.

Head coach Todd Bowles made Wilkerson a healthy scratch in each of the final three games of the 2017 campaign.

His best years were in 2013 and 2015, with 10.5 and 12 sacks respectively, but has only eight sacks the past two seasons. If Pettine can keep Wilkerson motivated and maximize his unique ability as a long and powerful run-stopper and pass-rusher, it's possible Wilkerson could land another big deal.
