Wilkerson visited the Packers two days later, but he also made visits to the Saints, Chiefs and Redskins before choosing the Packers.

Defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson #96 of the New York Jets celebrates a tackle against running back Tevin Coleman #26 (not pictured) of the Atlanta Falcons with teammate strong safety Jamal Adams #33 during the third quarter of the game at MetLife Stadium on October 29, 2017 in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

With Wilkerson now in the fold, the Packers have a formidable defensive line that also includes Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark.

You have just arrived in Green Bay.

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.

Marcus Smart's Chances Of Returning This Season Aren't Great
Smart will head to the Big Apple to have another examination done on his right thumb, according to NBA.com's David Aldridge. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports Smart and the Celtics are still deciding if Smart can play through the injury or not.

A former first-round pick, Wilkerson agreed to terms with the Packers on Tuesday, a source told ESPN.

A one-year commitment at $5 million is hardly a steep price to pay for a former Pro Bowler, regardless of the impact Wilkerson provides in 2018. Coach Mike McCarthy fired defensive coordinator Dom Capers in January after nine seasons.

Wilkerson, 28, dealt with ankle and shoulder injuries while managing just eight sacks over the last two reasons. The bigger positions of need are at cornerback and outside linebacker.

That seemed to change, however, when he was signed to a five-year, $86 million contract extension before the 2016 campaign, according to Spotrac.

The 305-pound defensive lineman was playing under the franchise tag with a lot to prove when he tallied 12 sacks during his Pro Bowl year in 2015.
