In a long-anticipated move, the New York Jets released defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson on Wednesday, ending a seven-year run that turned bitter last season.

The Jets had to cut Wilkerson before March 16 or else his $16.75 million salary for 2018 would have become fully guaranteed.
Limited Kyle Juszczyk Jersey Wilkerson, 28, was benched for the final three games of last season, ostensibly because he was late for a meeting on Dec. 15 — the fourth time since 2015 he was disciplined for tardiness.
The Jets decided to keep him off the field for the remainder of the season because they were concerned about a potential injury, which could have resulted in the team being on the hook for his 2018 salary. By then, the organization had decided Wilkerson’s fate.
In 2015, the Jets had one of the best defensive lines in the league, but they lost Damon Harrison in free agency and traded Sheldon Richardson. Now Wilkerson is gone, too. The only holdover is Leonard Williams, who the Jets selected with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2015 draft.
We know that he’s going to attack his rehab and post-surgery in the way that he prepares himself as a player, Perry said. And we’re going to be here to support him every step of the way.
One issue that is unsettled in the wake of Porzingis’ injury is the Knicks’ plans to offer him a rookie extension. This summer, Porzingis will be eligible for a five-year, $157 million extension, with a starting salary of $27 million. If New York decided to wait and offer Porzingis an extension in the summer of 2019, it would create an additional $10 million in cap space for the club that summer.
The club had been comfortable with the idea of offering Porzingis an extension this summer. It is unclear if or how Porzingis’ injury impacts the Knicks’ thinking.
Rosen, too, seemed intent to show he is the most ready to lift one of the teams near the top of the draft board.
I think I’m the best quarterback here, Rosen Cordy Glenn Authentic Jersey said. … I think I make quick decisions, very quick and decisive decisions. I always say if you can get three, four reads into your progression you’re going to increase your opportunity to get the ball down the field.
