DL Muhammad Wilkerson to meet with Packers coaches before visit
Free agent Muhammad Wilkerson is set to make his first visit and will do so with the Green Bay Packers.
On Tuesday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Tom Silverstein reported that Wilkerson had chosen to visit with the Packers before any other team.
Free agent DE Muhammad Wilkerson will be visiting the #Packers Wednesday, according to a source. He has other visits set up as well, but chose Green Bay first.

On Wednesday, NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport said that Wilkerson had arrived in Green Bay and was set to visit with the team’s coaches before having his official visit on Thursday.
Weather permitted, so FA DL Mo Wilkerson landed in Green Bay and will have dinner with #Packers coaches tonight. The visit will be tomorrow. Obviously a lot of mutual interest on both sides, so this could come together.

Wilkerson was a problematic player for the New York Jets. He regularly showed up late to team meetings and also did not keep himself in great shape. Apparently the Packers feel desperate enough for an upgrade on their defensive line that they are willing to overlook these issues.
