We have mixed reports on the kind of shape Jets defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson is in, but they led to a sack any lineman would be proud of.
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reported that Wilkerson recently showed up overweight as a spectator at Temple’s pro day, and several scouts described him as “sloppy” and one said that “He looked like a pedestrian with a huge gut.”
On its face, that would a bad look, after he signed a huge contract extension last offseason and responded with a poor year.
But another Jets writer has responded, claiming a vendetta.
Brian Costello of the New York Post responded with a photo from Wilkerson’s Instagram account last week, which shows him looking about like what Wilkerson looks like.
But then Costello accused Mehta of a grudge, and made it a little personal himself.
Regardless the shape Wilkerson may or may not be in, this makes me want nothing more than a big bowl of popcorn. And some wings. And maybe some ribs. Watching this fight will keep us entertained until the basketball starts.
