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 eventually signed a 5-year, $86M deal in July. The Jets are loaded on the defensive line, but we can likely expected another strong DE1 type year from Wilkerson as the leader of the group. (August 7)
