Jets star defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson not attending start of voluntary workout program

New York Jets standout defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson is a no-show for the start of voluntary offseason workouts, according to CBS Sports. Wilkersson is under contract under a $7 million fifth-year option. However, Wilkerson wants a new contract and no deal is imminent. So, there's a disconnect about how much he should be paid. If Wilkerson wants to, he can stay away from the Jets' training complex until a June mandatory minicamp. There isn't much that the Jets can do about it other than accelerate negotiations or stand pat. It's not as if Wilkerson won't be working out on his own, so, from a football standpoint, this doesn't affect much of anything.
