Report: Mutual interest in Muhammad Wilkerson returning to Packers

Defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson said last month that he’d like the stay for a second season in Green Bay and it appears he isn’t the only one who feels that way.

Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports that there is “mutual interest” in Wilkerson staying put after signing a one-year deal with the Packers in free agency last year.

Demovsky indicates that the Packers would likely be looking for another one-year deal with Wilkerson. That makes sense given the fact that Wilkerson appeared in just three games before suffering a season-ending ankle fracture.

Wilkerson needed two surgeries in the wake of the injury, but is expected to be ready to return to action come the fall.

  1. Nobody wanted him last year except Green Bay because of his history of injuries and bad attitude which required often being inactive for games as disciplinary reasons. It looks like he’s got no where else to go again and Green Bay will be dumb enough to pay him again.

  2. The D-line was looking pretty good before all three starters landed on IR. Wilkerson being the first of them. Fortunately, bones heal better than ligaments. Still wouldn’t give him a long term deal. A one or two year “prove it” deal again would be just fine.

  3. Pretty much a done deal that Mo and Jimmy Graham will be back.

    Gute sounded like he was leaning towards keeping Clay Matthews as well. Clay I wouldn’t say is a for sure keeper like Mo and Jimmy are though. We will see how much interest from other teams Clay gets.

    Rob Demovsky is also reporting that agents that have spoken to Green Bay at the combine said they got the sense their plan is to spend on a pass rusher(or pass rushers) in free angency and then see what is left in the budget.

  4. He was on a one year deal last year. His bad attitude and cancerous behavior comes after signing a multiyear contract with bonus money. Packers beware as his true self showed when he was a Jet.

  5. If we resign mo and let clay leave I may be finished as a Packers fan. People rip on him but Clay Matthews would have had a great season if it wasn’t for these officials. He literally ended 2 games on his own. Preposterous that we are even talking about Wilkerson. Lancaster did just fine at end

  6. As I said above, it appears Gute wants to keep Clay, but if someone offers Clay a big contract then rather than overpay him he would let him go.

    Gute can sign Wilkerson to a one year deal at 5 million or less. Daniels, Wilkerson, and Clark will be a dominant d-line when healthy. Lancaster will be in the DL rotation as well.

  7. It’s tough to gauge Mo’s overall performance last season as the sample size was so small.
    It was disappointing to all.
    Hopefully he makes a full recovery from his surgeries and he can pass his physical.
    If he can, re-upping him is basically a no-brainer.
    He can contribute as part of Pettine’s rotation and his contract will be of little to no risk.
    One of the best things about Wilkerson’s first season in Titletown is the fact he got through it without threatening the lives of any local hotel staffs or their employees.

  8. You can never have too much depth up front. That said Dean Lowry has improved his play every season and Tyler Lancaster showed he can soak up snaps vs the running game. If they can bring back Wilkerson at a discount to the $5 million he got last year I’d say do it. With Daniels entering his walk year in 2019, it would be helpful to have several options experienced in Pettine’s system to consider for 2020 (to play along-side the extended Kenny Clark).

  9. Come on back! Further evidence of how a motivated player becomes easily appreciative after being brainwashed to win, unlike anywhere else. Special. Unique. Better.

  10. A source close to Nick Perry said he wouldn’t be surprised if the Packers declined to pay the 4.8 million roster bonus due on March 15th

    Ummm Duh😃

    Nick we love ya, but you gone bruh.

    Cutting Nick Perry will clear 7.3 million more from the 2019 cap.

    The Packers main contract negotiator Russ Ball was seen talking to David Dunn in The Westin Friday. The Westin Hotel is connected to the convention center which is where all the Combine action goes on across from Lucas Oil. Dunn is Clay Matthews agent.

    Maybe a deal is in the works for Clay. Obviously it would be less than the 11.4 mill he was paid last year. I would not mind bringing Clay back on a team friendly deal and couple that with signing one of the edges available in free agency. Dee Ford or Clowney are possibilities, and there are others available. Also add to the position another edge in the draft and you start feeling a whole lot better about the OLB position for 2019.

    Well, Ford has been franchised, Texans and Clowney are talking. A leopard does not change its spots. The green and yellow do not spend in FA. Don’t you ever get tired of being wrong? But thanks for geographical reference for the Westin hotel

  13. Everyone understands second-to-none, including Wilkerson, no matter how it is conveyed, intended, or communicated. As a Packer, he’ll have to read about what “embrace the suck” means. He’ll be puzzzled, but plenty of people in Minnesota can explain it to him.

  14. Right Stella – at lest Wilkerson can talk down to those sucky 5 or less win teams while he looks down from the high 6 win perch his team sits with a foundation built on excuses about refs and injuries.

  15. Personally, I don’t care if the Packers ever win anything substantive ever again. A less than .500 season means nothing to me. I enjoy the Packers, everything about them, and everything they stand for. I have enjoyed so many successes and accomplishments of the Packers…….firsthand…….that I’m good. They’ve given me a lot. More than any one fan expects or deserves.

    How many fans of how many teams can honestly say that? I know one fanbase for certain cannot. That’s where the jealousy and anger comes from.

  16. Stella- I thought you said you were done talking about the past. Funny how your narrative changes from thread to thread. Also I don’t base my personal with on the results of others. I like the Vikings but if they never win a Super Bow my life will be more than fulfilling. Sad really someone basis their life’s enjoyment on a team comprised of guys who don’t know or care about him.

    No anger or jealousy just like pointing out the inconsistencies and foolish statements made by some of the overzealous fanboys.

  17. I’ve maintained I enjoy the success of the Packers, but I also maintained I could live without it going forward. That’s the opposite of the words you’re trying to put in my mouth.

    Basing your personal worth and one’s life enjoyment on the results of others? Those are your words, not mine, and I believe you’ve described Viking trolls very aptly. Straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak.

  18. Everyone understands second-to-none, including Wilkerson, no matter how it is conveyed, intended, or communicated
    ———-
    Everyone understands second to none no matter if it was communicated as second to last?
    What kind of logic it that?

  19. Funny how your narrative changes from thread to thread.

    Yup, says what suits him in the moment and can be contradicting over time. He probably doesn’t even realize it based and how he misuses words on here.

    ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

    You’ve resorted to fighting your fights by being a grammar cop? That helps you win?

    OK…….what kind of logic it that?

  21. Not understanding the meaning of the words you use then using them incorrectly is not grammar.
    And frankly I enjoy watching your lying, double talk and loopy logic every time I bring it up.

    Sure sounds like grammar police to me. Key admission?

    “……every time I bring it up.”

  23. The Packers are second-to-none, and always have been, no matter how they fare from season to season.

  24. And frankly I enjoy watching your lying, double talk and loopy logic every time I bring it up.

    Add to that watching you post Packer affirmations in response too. Do you feel better now?😋😋
