Summary

Wilkerson has already established himself as one of the best 3-4 defensive ends in the league, but he took things to a new level last year when he posted 12 sacks. It couldn't have come at a better time for him either as he was headed for free agency this offseason. The Jets used the franchise tag to retain his services, but he was holding out in the hopes of signing a long-term deal. Some speculated the Jets may trade him given their depth at the position, but that seems unlikely at this point. Assuming Wilkerson eventually signs the 1-year tender, we can likely expect another DE1 season from him. (May 27)

Jets | Muhammad Wilkerson ditches brace (Fri Jun 24, 09:09 PM) - New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (leg) shared a video that showed him running without a leg brace, and he remains on track to be ready for the start of the season, if not sooner.

Our View: Wilkerson surprisingly did not draw strong trade interest during the draft, and the continuing recovery of his leg injury could be a reason. With the loss of Damon Harrison in free agency to the Giants, the Jets will need Wilkerson to earn his franchise tag salary of 15.701 million.
