Draft Scout *Muhammad Wilkerson News
12/15/17 - DE Muhammad Wilkerson is being benched by the New York Jets because he showed up late again to a team meeting. Wilkerson will be a healthy scratch for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints, coach Todd Bowles announced Friday. Bowles said Wilkerson will not make the trip to New Orleans, calling it a "coach's decision." According to multiple reports, the 28-year-old Wilkerson arrived late to Friday morning's team meeting and tardiness continues to be an issue for the former Pro Bowler. Wilkerson, who signed a five-year, $86 million contract in July 2016, has only eight sacks in 28 games since the new deal. The Jets likely will release him before March due to lack of performance and because his $16.75 million salary becomes fully guaranteed if he is on the roster for the third day of the 2018 league year.
