Packers to land Muhammad Wilkerson

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

The Packers have agreed to terms with Wilkerson, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky.

The best season of Wilkerson's career came in 2015, the final year of his rookie contract.

You have just arrived in Green Bay.

In good news for Wilkerson, he can be reinvigorated by playing for a victor, something CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported was important to him when discussing Wilkerson on our Pick Six Podcast Free Agency Preview (listen and subscribe to all episodes here).

Teddy Bridgewater signs with New York Jets
Plenty of teams will look to trade up for a quarterback, including the Buffalo Bills at 12 and the Arizona Cardinals at 15. McCown started 13 games for the Jets in 2017, throwing for 2,926 yards with 18 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Former Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler to sign with Titans
Between those career landmarks, Butler started 54 of a possible 55 games and played more defensive snaps than any Patriots player. According to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter , Butler will with the Tennessee Titans when free agency officially opens.

Although the Jets showed good faith by rewarding him with a five-year, $85 million deal in 2016, Wilkerson has disappeared on the field and disappointed off the field ever since. It was a major point of contention when the Packers switched general managers and put Brian Gutekunst in charge this offseason.

The Packers will soon find out if Muhammad Wilkerson is right for them. Wilkerson visited the Packers last week. The longtime Jet recorded just eight sacks in the past two seasons, and he struggled to consistently generate pressure.

Former New York Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine joining the Packers' coaching staff could've been the deciding factor for Wilkerson if his offers all amounted to one-year prove it deals, like the contract he signed with Green Bay. 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.

Still, defensive line might be the deepest position on the Packers' defensive roster, with budding star Kenny Clark, Pro Bowler Mike Daniels and the improving Dean Lowry.
