Muhammad Wilkerson plans on domination

Muhammad Wilkerson has a warning to the rest of the league.

“I want to pretty much have one of my best years ever,” Wilkerson told Brian Costello of New York Post. “I plan on being dominant.”

Wilkerson made 12 sacks in 2015, earning Pro Bowl honors for the first time. He had only 41/2 sacks last season on the heels of signing a five-year, $86 million deal.

But what Wilkerson kept to himself was a lingering tendon issue with his leg, which he broke in the 2015 season finale.

“At the end of the day, nobody knew what I was going through,” Wilkerson said. “People can say what they want, but I couldn’t care less about what people say.”

Now 100 percent, Wilkerson vows to get back to playing up to his expectations.

  1. When healthy this guy is one of the better 3-4 DE in the league.

    Believe it or not his younger teammate Leonard Williams is already better. Sheldon Richardson can play too. One thing for sure – the Jets D-line is talented.

  2. I am a huge Jets fan and their D line isnt really better than average. They are elite on paper like as you said, but collectively as a group to go along with arguably the worse head coach in the league you get mediocrity. They are elite against the run, but average at best against the pass. Even when they had a good secondary they never had an elite pass rush with that group. And its not like this is a running league.

  3. Their best talent is at the D-Line.

    Problem is, they didn’t use these guys very well at times last year–putting Richardson at ILB did not work. I hope they scheme better.

    And Richardson is surely gone soon. It is a shame, he is very talented but so many off the field violations, he is one more violation away from a long suspension.

    Jets may have been better off keeping Damon Harrison and letting Wilkerson walk…but the team thought differently. And Harrison had a great season for the Giants. Good for him–he went from UDFA to all pro.
