Muhammad Wilkerson was released by the Jets following the 2017-18 season, and the talented defensive end has drawn interest from a number of teams so far this offseason.
Wilkerson has already visited the Packers and is reportedly scheduled to visit the Saints and Chiefs next.

Wilkerson had his worst season last year posting a career low 46 tackles with just 3.5 sacks. The 28-year-old is just two seasons removed from a Pro-Bowl caliber season and has the talent to be a top tier defensive lineman.
Wilkerson would fit well on the Chiefs who ranked 25th in the league in rush defense and 24th in sacks last season and could use Wilkerson's performance on their defensive line.
Would expect 3-4 teams (NE, BAL, PIT - where his old DL coach is) to have some interest. KC has former DC on staff. Mo still just 28yr old— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) February 28, 2018
The Saints would also benefit from Wilkerson's skill as the team ranked 17th in rush defense last season.
Wilkerson will look to replicate his earlier career success with his new team and New Orleans and Kansas City would both be solid options for the defensive end. Both teams will have the opportunity to pitch Wilkerson when he visits but will face stiff competition from the rest of the league.
