Jets' Muhammad Wilkerson: Absent from workouts
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wilkerson (leg) is not expected to attend the Jets' offseason program, NFL.com reports.

Wilkerson, who is still rehabbing from the broken fibula he suffered in Week 17, has yet to sign his $15.7 million franchise tag, as he continues to seek a long-term deal with the Jets. While his stance on a new contract could lead the Jets to entertain trade interest in him during the draft or thereafter, Wilkerson's career-best 12 sacks and 64 tackles last season make him one of the league's best defensive lineman and someone New York could obviously use after losing nose tackle Damon Harrison this offseason.

Jets' Muhammad Wilkerson: To receive franchise tag
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wilkerson received the Jets' franchise tag ahead of Tuesday's deadline, the New York Daily News reports.

Wilkerson's franchise tag designation will net him $15.7M for the 2016 campaign, when he'll aim to bounce back after suffering a broken fibula in Week 17 of last season. One of the league's premier defensive linemen, Wilkerson registered a career-high 12 sacks to go with 64 tackles last term, making him a stellar IDP option at his position.

Jets' Muhammad Wilkerson: Expected to receive Jets franchise tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad Wilkerson is expected to receive the franchise tag from the New York Jets but could still be traded, the New York Daily News reports.

Wilkerson will cost in the $15-$16 million range against the salary cap if tagged. He is currently considered "ahead of schedule" in his rehabilitation from a fractured tibia and has 30.5 sacks over the past three years, making it well worth the Jets' while to lock him up at that cost, even if they end up flipping him at a later date.

Jets' Muhammad Wilkerson: Cleared to begin rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad Wilkerson had an evaluation on his healing right tibia in North Carolina on Thursday and received clearance to begin rehabilitation.

After breaking his right leg in the season finale, Wilkerson underwent surgery shortly thereafter, but the expected recovery timetable of six months was expected to be a hindrance in his upcoming free agency. With news that he can kick off the rehab process, though, he relayed that he's "ahead of schedule," which bodes well for his offseason prospects. Even if his participation in the offseason program is delayed with whomever signs the defensive lineman, his pass-rushing chops will be incredibly appealing to interested parties.

Jets' Muhammad Wilkerson: Expected to need 6 months for rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad Wilkerson (fractured tibia) is expected to require six months for recovery and rehab, Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News reports.

Given that Wilkerson suffered the injury in Week 17 and had surgery shortly thereafter, he can safely be ruled out for offseason activities. He does have a shot to be ready for the start of training camp, but with his rookie contract set to expire, it's unclear what team he will be playing for. Even with Sheldon Richardson and Leonard Williams also in the fold, the New York Jets are believed to have serious interest in ponying up to keep Wilkerson around. The injury might lead to a slight discount, but Wilkerson will inevitably still become one of the league's highest-paid defensive players.
