The Green Bay Packers signed DL Muhammad Wilkerson on March 15, 2018.
Wilkerson (6-4, 315) was originally selected by the New York Jets in the first round (No. 30 overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Temple. Over seven seasons in New York, he played in 105 regular-season games, starting 101, and recorded 498 tackles (324 solo), 44.5 sacks, two interceptions, 26 passes defensed, 10 forced fumbles and a fumble recovery that he returned for a touchdown. In 2015, he earned a spot in the Pro Bowl after posting a career-best 12 sacks, tied for the sixth most in the NFL that season and the most by a Jets player since DL Shaun Ellis recorded 12.5 in 2003. It was the second time in his career he reached 10-plus sacks after posting 10.5 in the 2013, the same season he set career highs in tackles (91) and solo tackles (66).
