Green Bay Packers sign Mo Wilkerson: Free Agency Grade

Raiders lose out on DT Mo Wilkerson signs with Packers

Wilkerson has a personal connection in Green Bay. Not long after adding tight end Jimmy Graham on a three-year deal, the Packers bolstered their defense by bringing in a player new defensive coordinator is Mike Pettine is familiar with in Muhammad Wilkerson.

Wilkerson is clearly betting on himself to rehab his value around the league by playing for a year under Packers defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, his coach in NY for the first two seasons of his NFL career.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky broke the news on Twitter. Wilkerson will play under a one-year deal worth $5 million, plus $3 million in incentives, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported.

I'll wait to see how Wilkerson's contract comes out financially before giving the Packers an "A" grade on this signing. "#Packers should be getting a motivated player". Pettine could also be a reason why Wilkerson chose Green Bay. The two worked together for two years with the New York Jets.

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

USA spends twice as much as other wealthy countries on health care
Despite this, the United States still lags behind all other developed countries when it comes to the quality of said healthcare. The good news is that despite poor overall outcomes, when people are sick, the quality of delivered healthcare is quite high.

It's fair to say Mike Daniels is pleased with the signing. Wilkerson produced eight sacks in 28 games over the past two seasons.

It's been a couple years since he made that kind of impact, but if Wilkerson can stay healthy and return to form, he's the type of talent that transforms an entire defensive line.

The Jets placed the franchise tag on Wilkerson in 2016 to prevent him from hitting free agency, but his future with the team remained in doubt.

They will need to address the cornerback position at some point, but Gutekunst is well aware.
