Green Bay hired Wilkerson's former DC Mike Pettine this offseason for the same job, so this pairing makes sense as Pettine knows what a motivated Wilkerson looks like. Damon Harrison left in free agency, Sheldon Richardson was traded and now Wilkerson is gone to Green Bay. Mike Pettine, the Packers' new defensive coordinator, was Wilkerson's defensive coordinator with NY when he was drafted in the first round in 2011. The deal is reportedly worth a maximum of $8 million, per NFL Network's Jason La Canfora.
Muhammad Wilkerson embarked on a four-city tour over the past several days but has made a decision, and it turns out the first stop on that two-time zone sojourn was telling.
The Green Bay Packers have been one of the most active teams in the tampering window, agreeing to terms with tight end Jimmy Graham and releasing wide receiver Jordy Nelson. He took a one-year deal and will have a chance to prove he's the player he was.
NY officially released Wilkerson on February 28. He can stop the run, rush the passer, and create interior pressure that wreaks havoc and opens opportunities for other players. Coach Mike McCarthy fired defensive coordinator Dom Capers in January after nine seasons.

Wilkerson, 28, was released by the Jets after a tumultuous 2017 season during which he had just 3.5 sacks, his lowest total since his rookie season.
For the Packers, this is another departure from their traditionally conservative approach to free agency.
The 2011 first-round pick made the Pro Bowl for the first time in 2015 after registering 64 tackles and a career-high 12 sacks.
