Now that the Jets have added defensive lineman Leonard Williams, the question becomes whether they’ll trade defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson.

Jets G.M. Mike Maccagnan has addressed that question with a loaded answer.

Per multiple reports, Maccagnan said at a press conference following the selection of Williams that the Jets aren’t “actively shopping” Wilkerson.  Which hardly means he’s not available.

Wilkerson, a first-round pick in 2011, wants a new contract.  He’s staying away from offseason workouts due to his displeasure with his current deal.
