Raiders lose out on DT Mo Wilkerson, signs with Packers

Although there are some concerns regarding Wilkerson's willingness to give 100 percent game in and game out, the Packers could have a bargain on their hands if he lives up to his potential.

The 2018 Green Bay Packers are not your father's Green Bay Packers, or even your younger uncle's Green Bay Packers, because these Green Bay Packers are spending big early in free agency.

Free agent defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson is signing with the Packers. Coach Mike McCarthy fired defensive coordinator Dom Capers in January after nine seasons. The two worked together for two years with the New York Jets.

Still, defensive line might be the deepest position on the Packers' defensive roster, with budding star Kenny Clark, Pro Bowler Mike Daniels and the improving Dean Lowry.

They will need to address the cornerback position at some point, but Gutekunst is well aware. Eventually, the Jets had enough and he was a healthy scratch for the last three games of the 2017 season. By then, the organization had decided Wilkerson's fate.

Wilkerson first came into the National Football League in 2011 as a first round pick of the Jets. The team terminated that contract after only two years.

If not, the Packers will have only paid $5 million for the opportunity to find out. He will also contribute to the pass rush - Wilkerson recorded double-digit sacks in two of his seven seasons with the Jets.

NY signed Wilkerson, the team's first-round pick in the 2011 draft, to a five-year extension that included $53 million in guarantees after his Pro Bowl season in 2015, but it did not fare out as planned.
