Report: Jets Exercise DE Muhammad Wilkerson’s Fifth-Year Option

  Ian Rapoport reports that the Jets have exercised DE Muhammad Wilkerson‘s fifth-year extension.

The 2015 option will run them close to $6 million for the 2015 season, which is a very reasonable salary for a player...

After much anticipation, it is now believed that the NFL will release its 2014 schedule on Tuesday, April 22.
