Muhammad Wilkerson signing 1-year deal with Packers

Report | Packers to land Muhammad Wilkerson

The Green Bay Packers got busy on Tuesday.

Imagine a defensive line featuring Muhammad Wilkerson, Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark.

Green Bay adds Jimmy Graham and Mo Wilkerson.

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

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.

Now Wilkerson will come back home to face the Jets when the Packers come to MetLife Stadium this season.

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.

Wilkerson, 28, dealt with ankle and shoulder injuries while managing just eight sacks over the last two reasons.

NY signed Wilkerson, the team's first-round pick in the 2011 draft, to a five-year extension that included $53 million in guarantees after his Pro Bowl season in 2015, but it did not fare out as planned.

The 305-pound defensive lineman was playing under the franchise tag with a lot to prove when he tallied 12 sacks during his Pro Bowl year in 2015. The defensive tackle was benched for the final three games of the season after he was late to a team meeting, and as the relationship turned rocky it became obvious that Wilkerson would be hitting the free market. He can stop the run, rush the passer, and create interior pressure that wreaks havoc and opens opportunities for other players.
