Report: Packers to Sign Former Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson

The Packers won the race for Wilkerson's service.

A couple years ago, Muhammad Wilkerson received a five-year, $86 million deal after proving to be one of the most dominant defensive linemen in the National Football League in 2015.

Now, the Green Bay Packers will hope to get the player that Wilkerson was earlier in his career after they agreed to terms with him, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN. The deal is expected to be for one season, giving Wilkerson the opportunity to test free agency again next year.

He'll also get to do playing with his old defensive coordinator Pettine, who was on the Jets with Rex Ryan when Wilkerson was drafted by NY back in 2011.
