Muhammad Wilkerson is currently the best available player on our list of the top free agents in the NFL. He’s not helping his chances of getting the kind of contract he wants.

Wilkerson was arrested for drunk driving today, the New York Daily News reports.

Police pulled Wilkerson over at about 3:40 a.m. for running a stop sign, according to the report. Officers said they suspected Wilkerson was drunk and he told them he had a shot and two beers.

A breathalyzer recorded his blood alcohol content at 0.09, which is just above the legal limit.

The 29-year-old Wilkerson played seven seasons with the Jets before signing with the Packers last year. An injury limited him to just three games in 2018.

  1. .09 is a joke. .09 is nothing but a revenue generator. Ask Robert Kraft if blue lives matter !!

  2. I remember when this guy was in the draft
    Idiots on TV pegged this guy like the second coming of Sapp.
    He’s been a meh player.

    I don’t think Kraft’s case ever brought police lives into question. There is no report of Wilkerson doing that here either.

  4. Of course the daily news and prolly Manish reported this. He is on some path Manish it’s become personal where it should never have been. As for Wilkerson it’s sad too see once he got paid he turned into a fraud. Way too now officially ruin ur career again

    Apparently you think drunk driving is a joke.

  6. Just some knowledge for everyone coming from someone who has a prior DUI. Even if you blow .08 or less, by admitting to having even 1 drink you can still be charged with a DUI. Well atleast in the fabulous state of NJ you can.

    Actually, and I will never forget it, but it was a mnf game and gruden claimed him to be another Richard Seymour, simply because Rexie Ryan was pimping as such.

    Absolutely preposterous.

    He used his leverage and took the Jetsies for a ride.

    If the player is a Jet, they are immediately overrated.

  9. .09 is not drunk driving. It’s two beers for the average guy.

    He should have kept his mouth shut and spent the 10 k to fight the case. Maybe the breathalyzer wasn’t calibrated right. Maybe the officer didn’t administer it properly.

  10. I find the “Legal limit” term ironic since you can blow anything and if the officer “feels” or “judges” that you are impaired you can be arrested. I blew a .05 and was arrested. The whole “Legal Limit” thing needs to be exposed. It’s truly nothing more than an officers opinion or judgement if you fall below .08. Money making scheme…..

  11. Why? Why take the chance of being pulled over when you can call a cab or a friend to pick you up…especially with what he has at stake. Without a doubt he’ll be suspended for a few games so if he hasn’t been signed already I’ll be surprised if he’s signed now.

  12. Everybody gets drunk driving tickets. Wisconsin taught him well, that’s all. It’s what we do. Come to think of it, it’s all we do.

  13. If you’re dumb enough to commit a blatant traffic violation after having a few drinks, don’t be mad at the system. It isn’t difficult: either drive property or don’t drive after drinking.

  14. Well the guy lived in Green Bay, Wisconsin… What else was he gonna do on a Saturday night? Attend a Sargento convention…? 🐭

  15. The man was a beast in his first few seasons with the Jets
    then he had more injury issues
    he has not been the same since his first big payday although there were rumors of him missing practice, missing meetings, often would be late, attitude seemed to get worse as his fame increased
    he signed a huge contract
    he then decided not to show up for practice same day when they got him a birthday cake
    it got worse
    has tons of talent, but I don’t think the fire is there anymore
    at least, not for football. Maybe for booze.
    The funny thing is-JEts could have let him walk and despite all the internal debate-gave him big money for a few seasons. Another reason why the GM had to be fired. There was more than enough internal info that they should have traded him for picks in return or not given him that extension.
    Much like every free agent pick up with Mac, either its good for one year or NO years.

    Even if he signs for the league minimum, he might get suspended a game now. So I doubt anyone signs him before the first game, because nobody is giving him a guaranteed contract.

    .09 is not drunk driving. It’s two beers for the average guy.

    Its way more than 2 beers for the average guy, and for a big man like Wilkerson its even more. I can drink 2 beers and not be drunk or anywhere near .08. I still wouldn’t drive right after drinking 2 beers though.

    Wilkerson got busted at almost 4 in the morning. He was drinking all night probably.

  17. He was probably just used to the old drill in Wisconsin. You need a minimum of 6 drinks to make a Wisconsin girl look decent, poor guy just forgot you don’t need that thick of beer goggles once you get out of Wisco.

    Except he was arrested in Manhattan, but don’t let the facts get in the way of your narrative. And enjoy getting the first pick in next spring’s draft, Idiot.

  19. .09 was below the legal limit not that long ago. For those who are saying he doesn’t get that high with a 2 beers and shot don’t know what they are talking about. An average person can blow that high after one beer and a shot would easily put you over. Most people talking negative here have gotten behind the wheel higher than this if you ever had more than one drink and drove.

  20. Poor decision-making by a guy that could least afford poor decision-making.

  21. .08 generally means you had more than 1 drink in less than an hour. It isn’t a very high level and virtually anyone who has two beers would blow it without some time passing from the last beer. He apparently ran a Stop Sign,which is a problem with or without the .08

  22. Was he really drunk? maybe not but he was feeling pretty good and he did have a higher than legal BAC level and thats all it takes to get arrested.one beer is 5% alcohol and one shot of booze is 40% alcohol so two beers was 10% and one shot was 40% equalling 50% alcohol in his system which equal .09 BAC level,legally drunk.

  23. Should have been hanging with Snacks. He’ll be offered the veterans minimum IF he gets another chance. Mayock will take him of course…..

  24. This guys downfall is nuts. The people on here saying he’s a meh player clearly didn’t watch him under Rex Ryan. It wasn’t until the big contract, the Bowles hire, and breaking his leg in week 17 at Buffalo when he started acting out.

  25. Drinking away the awful memories of a season with the Packers. Hard to blame him this time.

    .09 for a guy that size is like a .04 for the average guy.

    It’s obvious you don’t understand how this works. You probably also believe PSI is a weight

  27. He should be smart enough to get a driver; but the overwhelming judgement from people responding here who’ve probably escaped this fate 100 times is sad. But for the grace of… should be the first thought. .1 is about revenue. I agree he should be smarter, but good grief! Most of you commenting and judging here would have blown more in the past month!

    Making fun of a DWI is on par for a Viking troll. It’s the reason why I loved how Philly fans treated snowflake Viking fans during the NFC Championship game. It’s also why I have celebrated every August 1st since 2007.

  29. If I were an NFL GM and a player had a DWI on his record it would definitely have an impact on my interest, especially if there was reckless driving and/or other violations attached to it. However, a guy who rolls through a stop sign at 3am, gets pulled over and blows a .009 (which is NOT even close to being impaired) without any other incidents would likely not deter my interest in the player.

  30. .02 for every drink in an hour… so would be about 4 or 5 drinks in an hour to blow a .09

  31. The guy made a mistake, I am not a fan of this type story. Why rub his nose in it. He was barely over the limit on top of it.
