Free Agent DL Muhammad Wilkerson Arrested For DWI


According to the New York Post, free agent DL Muhammad Wilkerson was arrested for driving while intoxicated early Saturday.

Wilkerson was in Upper Manhattan at about 4 am when he was stopped by law enforcement and produced a blood alcohol level of .09.

There hasn’t been any reported interest in Wilkerson, who is working his way back from a serious ankle injury. 

Back in March, Rob Demovsky reported that there was “mutual interest” between the Packers and Wilkerson about bringing him back for the 2019 season. However, Green Bay has since bolstered their defensive line group. 

Wilkerson, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Jets back in 2011. He played out his rookie contract with the team and was in line to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason before the Jets used their franchise tag on him in 2017.

The Jets later signed Wilkerson to a five-year, $86 million contract before releasing him last year. From there, Wilkerson signed a one-year contract with the Packers worth up to $8 million.

Wilkerson has been testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent this offseason. 

In 2018, Wilkerson appeared in two games and recorded four tackles and no sacks for the Packers.
