Muhammad Wilkerson to Have Surgery in Next Week

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

At his season-ending press conference today, Todd Bowles indicated Muhammad Wilkerson will have surgery on his broken leg.

I would tend to guess that this will not have a major impact on his free agency. Broken bones heal.

It was a sad way to end a terrific season for Wilkerson. He finished 2015 with a career high 12 sacks, tying for sixth most in the league. The disruption he caused and the consistency with which he won his assignments also happened at a very high rate. This is not to mention the versatility he brings with his ability to line up almost anywhere.

Hopefully the Jets can get him locked up quickly.
