Jets castoff Muhammad Wilkerson finds a new team

Report | Packers to land Muhammad Wilkerson

Tom Pelissero of NFL.com says the contract is one year, $5 million with up to $3 million in incentives.

I'll wait to see how Wilkerson's contract comes out financially before giving the Packers an "A" grade on this signing. The Jets went 10-6, and NY rewarded their defensive tackle with a five-year, $86 million dollar deal. Mike Pettine, the Packers' new defensive coordinator, was Wilkerson's defensive coordinator with NY when he was drafted in the first round in 2011.

This represents the third major piece of Packers news on Tuesday, following the release of WR Jordy Nelson and signing of free agent tight end Jimmy Graham.

Wilkerson has proved to be a disruptive force against both the pass and the run when healthy and motivated, which could make him a steal of a signing.

A lot more work still needs to be done, but Gutekunst has made a step towards improving the defense. He never saw the last three years of that deal after things soured with the New York Jets.

After his release from New York, Wilkerson first visited Green Bay before meeting with the Saints, Chiefs and Redskins in recent days.

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

Wilkerson, 28, has a chance to rewrite the script under defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, who served in the same role with the Jets in Wilkerson's first two seasons.

The defensive line has a ton of potential with Wilkerson, Daniels and Clark, especially under Pettine.
