Jets exercise fifth-year option on Muhammad Wilkerson
The Jets have exercised their fifth-year option on defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson.
The Jets have exercised their fifth-year option on Wilkerson in advance of the May 3 deadline, a league source confirmed to CBSSports.com.
Wilkerson has been the anchor of Rex Ryan's defense for the past two years, emerging as one of the better (and more underrated) defensive lineman in the NFL.
Paired with Sheldon Richardson, he's a force up front for the Jets.
No doubt the team will be interested in a long-term deal for Wilkerson too, but it can, like all the teams with 2011 and on rookies, be patient.
Theoretically the Jets could let 2014 and 2015 play out -- Wilkerson's option year is only guaranteed for injury -- and then franchise tag him in 2016.
More than likely they'll seek to lock up the defensive lineman for the long haul.
