Muhammad Wilkerson won't travel for Jets at Saints

16 December, 2017, 15:54 | Author: Jacqueline Daniels

Hackenberg is now the backup after Josh McCown's season-ending injury.

Wilkerson - who is the highest-paid player on the Jets with a cap hit of $18 million - has been benched for tardiness in each of the past three seasons.

"Just worrying about the guys I'm coaching", Jets coach Todd Bowles said in a clipped news conference.

On the field, Wilkerson slipped from a career-high 12 sacks in 2015; to 4 ½ last season, when he was playing hurt, and 3 ½ this season.

Albert Maruna IV, a student at Youngstown State University, allegedly reached out to an officer posing as a child on a dating app. He also told the cop that he wanted the "teen" to be his husband one day, reported WKBN .

The Jets nearly certainly will release him before March.

Wilkerson was benched for a majority of the first quarter against the Chiefs on November 26 because he was late to a meeting the day before the game. He sat the first quarter against the Giants in 2015 and again against Miami last season when he also missed a walkthrough practice.

Wilkerson hasn't been a bad player, but he hasn't been worth that contract and he might not be worth the trouble anymore. That's eight sacks in 28 games.

"A source told NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes that the reason is this: Wilkerson arrived late to Friday morning's team meeting". Bowles calls this a coach's decision and says he's anxious only about the players who will face the Saints. "I'm not anxious about Mo right now", he said.

Arsenal Haven't Offered Mesut Ozil Final Contract - Arsene Wenger
He caught the eye against Huddersfield Town at the end of November, when he played a starring role in Arsenal's 5-0 win. The German global will be out of contract next summer and Arsenal will surely not want to lose him on a free transfer.

"He pretty much just said, 'our mission is still the same".

Demario Davis said Bowles informed the team of Wilkerson's latest punishment. You'd assume, with them leaving Wilkerson home for Sunday's game, they have reached the end of their rope and would rather eat $9 in dead space to get rid of Wilkerson and his unremarkable production.

The Jets have decided not to activate wide receiver-kick returner Jeremy Kerley, who's served his four-game suspension for violation of the league's substance abuse policy.

Running back Matt Forte (knee) and right guard Brian Winters (abdomen/ankle) are questionable and will be game time decisions, said Bowles.
