According to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com, the Jets and defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson are expected to start talking about a contract since next season will be the final year of his rookie deal.
In a few months, the Jets and Wilkerson will be talking contract. He has only one year remaining on his rookie deal, and the team almost certainly will try to lock him up next offseason with a long-term deal — probably the first mega-contract of the John Idzik era. The franchise-tag amount this year for a defensive end is $11.2 million, so that should provide a basic idea of how much of a yearly average we’re talking about.
Wilkerson claims he’s not thinking about the mega contract that awaits him.
“I’m from New Jersey and, just being here these three years, it’s been great for me,” he said. “I’m happy here. I definitely plan on hopefully being a Jet for life.”
Wilkerson was a monster on Monday night against the Falcons and is clearly the Jets best defensive player and you could even argue their best overall player.

New York Jets tight end Kellen Winslow has been suspended without pay for four games by the NFL for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. Winslow will miss games against Pittsburgh, New England, Cincinnati and New Orleans. He’ll be eligible to return to the Jets on Monday, Nov. 4, the day after the Jets
Santonio Holmes made roughly the same amount of noise in his press conference Thursday as he likely will on the field on Sunday. Rex Ryan suggested Thursday that Holmes will probably miss Sunday’s matchup against the Steelers while the wide receiver was evasive with the media a week after saying “I can’t throw it to myself and catch it otherwise I would.”

After Mark Sanchez walloped his shoulder and likely lost his last, desperate chance at being the New York Jets’ starting quarterback during garbage time in a preseason game, many people wondered how Sanchez felt about getting the boot from New York in the most passive-aggressive way possible.
According to some New York Post “witnesses,” Sanchez did not like it at all.
Muhammad Wilkerson walked to his locker inside the Jets training facility this week put down his cell phone and turned around to see he was surrounded by a group of reporters and cameras.
“Wow what’s all this?” Wilkerson said.
He had better get used to the attention.
If it takes three years to properly evaluate a draft then the Jets hit a home run by taking Wilkerson in...
I don’t know if there was any confusion on the topic of whether or not Mark Sanchez was alive or not but Rex Ryan cleared it up. “Mark Sanchez is not dead,” the Jets’ head coach said to Seth Walder of the New York Daily News. Thanks a lot Rex. The response came as a typical Rex Ryan question dodge when asked about Sanchez’s future with the Jets.
“We’re acting like...

As it turns out, David Garrard is not ready for retirement just yet.
The veteran quarterback, who retired in May due to chronic knee problems, decided Thursday to return to the New York Jets. He underwent a physical and was removed from the reserve-retired list.
Garrard was placed on the team’s exempt list, meaning the Jets now have 10 days to decide if they want to add him to...

Jets Papers Give Geno the Same Headline as Sanchez
Geno Smith's Monday night performance not only won over critics and headline writers it also earned him the AFC Offensive Player of the Week award for Week 5.
Smith completed 16 of 20 passes for 199 yards and three touchdowns but it was his poise down the stretch leading the New York Jets to a 30-28 last-second victory over the Atlanta Falcons that most likely earned him the...
Edwards says someone is trying to “come up” off his status but constantly puts himself in compromising situations.
