5 Teams That Should Take A Chance on Muhammad Wilkerson

Muhammad Wilkerson was an integral part of a fierce New York Jets defense that had big dreams for the future. That's no longer the case, as Wilkerson was released by the Jets. His relationship with the team soured last season, but he still has the potential to be a dominant force in the league. With that in mind, here are four teams that should take a chance on Mo.

5. Green Bay Packers

This wouldn't be taking much of a chance considering the Packers have already expressed interest in Wilkerson, but all the same, it's a fit that makes sense. The Packers need more pass rushers with the decline of Clay Matthews and Mo could fill that role. 

4. New England Patriots

While he might not necessarily fit with the Patriots' organizational culture, he would be a real anchor for their defensive line. And you know the Pats would love to pick up Wilkerson and have him stick it to the Jets by sacking whoever their quarterback may be in 2018.

3. Seattle Seahawks

Wouldn't it be funny if the Seahawks decided to bring in Muhammad Wilkerson to replace Sheldon Richardson, another former Jet? It would make sense, as Richardson's price tag would figure to be higher in comparison. There's a real chance that the Hawks would get more out of Mo, as he put up better numbers than Richardson in fewer games in 2017.

2. Washington Redskins

The Redskins are in need of run stoppers, as they did not fare well against the ground game last season. Drafting Jonathan Allen in the 2017 draft was a first step, and adding Wilkerson would give them one of the more dynamic run-stopping duos in the league.

1. Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs have been making changes left and right on defense, and they could use another experienced veteran on their line. Defensive coordinator Bob Sutton previously coached Wilkerson in New York during his first two years in the league, and he absolutely flourished. This just makes too much sense.
