Muhammad Wilkerson visiting Packers Thursday

Plans for Muhammad Wilkerson to visit the Packers were reported before Wilkerson was officially cut by the Jets on Monday and that visit is now taking place.

Word earlier this week was that the visit was scheduled for Wednesday and Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that is when Wilkerson arrived in Green Bay. He was set for dinner with Packers coaches before moving on to a formal visit at the team’s facility on Thursday.

Wilkerson was released by the Jets after a dismal 2017 season that saw him have little impact on the field before getting benched in Week 15 as a result of a missed team meeting. That was the latest in a string of missed meetings or late arrivals and Wilkerson did not play again for the Jets.

In Green Bay, Wilkerson will have the chance to renew acquaintances with defensive coordinator Mike Pettine after the men worked together with the Jets in 2011 and 2012. He’ll also have the chance to make his case that he’s a more committed player than he appeared to be at the end of his run with the Jets.

  1. It’s always a crap shoot. The character of a man is always an important consideration. You don’t change the spots in a leopard. What could he possibly say to “make things right?”

  2. He’ll also have the chance to make his case that he’s a more committed player than he appeared to be at the end of his run with the Jets.

    He will be as long as you tie everything into money. Give him the bare minimum salary and put plenty of behavior and incentive clauses in. That’s the only thing that will motivate him. However, with what he showed with the Jets I’m surprised anyone is interested in him. He’s a bad apple.

  3. Maybe… like Reggie White… God has chosen this for him . well, the money helps too

  4. Maybe he willing to change for better, or maybe not…

    1 thing I do know is; It ain’t Jets problem anymore to worry about him. Let other teams worry or not sign him at all.

    I wanted Wilkerson to get big deal contract with Jets, because he deserved it after playing hard for first couple years; Until he show his true colors after signing that Fat contract.

  5. I’d offer a low base with huge incentives.
    If he plays like he did in 2014/2015 he gets paid.
    If he dogs it like he did in 2016 he gets his low base.
    If he’s ok but not great, as in 2017, he gets some bonus.

    Looks like the Packers have a great head start on another offseason championship.

    I think you’re confusing the basic difference between Packer fans and Viking fans. Just because we’re “brainwashed to win” doesn’t mean we’re predicting it. That would be like saying “embracing the suck” means the Vikings enjoy being pretenders. But that’s not true, is it?

    Is it?
