Jets | Crunch time for Muhammad Wilkerson trade

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 13:40:39 -0700

New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson and the Jets could find a trade to be more difficult once the NFL Draft begins. A potential suitor must be willing to sign Wilkerson to a long-term extension that would cost around $50 million. They must also be assured that there are no issues with Wilkerson's surgically repaired fibula.

There have not been any urgent negotiations recently, at least none that have been reported, although Wilkerson said he would love to play for the San Francisco 49ers. Stay tuned as the NFL Draft nears.
