  • Mo Wilkerson agrees to terms with Packers on free-agent deal

Wilkerson has a personal connection in Green Bay.

Free agent defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson is signing with the Packers. Mike Pettine, the Packers' new defensive coordinator, was Wilkerson's defensive coordinator with NY when he was drafted in the first round in 2011.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky broke the news on Twitter.

In good news for Wilkerson, he can be reinvigorated by playing for a victor, something CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported was important to him when discussing Wilkerson on our Pick Six Podcast Free Agency Preview (listen and subscribe to all episodes here).

The Packers won the race for Wilkerson's service. "#Packers should be getting a motivated player". Wilkerson visited the Packers two days later, but he also made visits to the Saints, Chiefs and Redskins before choosing the Packers.

Although the Jets showed good faith by rewarding him with a five-year, $85 million deal in 2016, Wilkerson has disappeared on the field and disappointed off the field ever since.

One can assume new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine had a say in this signing.

More bad Celtics' injury news, Marcus Smart reportedly has torn thumb ligament
Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving will not play in Wednesday's game against the Washington Wizards because of a knee injury. More troubling is news that reserve big man Daniel Theis is out for the season with a torn meniscus .


A Pro Bowler in 2015 and twice a second-team All-Pro, Wilkerson will help strengthen the Packers' front-seven.

Wilkerson was released from the Jets prior to the beginning of free agency.

It's fair to say Mike Daniels is pleased with the signing.

They will need to address the cornerback position at some point, but Gutekunst is well aware.

Wilkerson, 28, was released by the Jets after a tumultuous 2017 season during which he had just 3.5 sacks, his lowest total since his rookie season.

What are your thoughts on the two signings?
