Jets Sign First Round Pick Muhammad Wilkerson

The New York Jets agreed to terms with first round pick Muhammad Wilkerson on a four-year contract worth $7.4 million. The deal includes a $3.9 million signing bonus.

It’s a homecoming of sorts as the Temple alum grew up in nearby Linden, New Jersey, 30 minutes away from the team’s complex.

“It’s official,” Wilkerson said on his Twitter page, “now im a Jet and happy to be apart of this great organization!!!!”

Wilkerson is expected to report to training camp tomorrow with the rest of the team and practice on Monday.

The only draft pick that remains unsigned is third round pick Kendrick Ellis.
