Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson will not participate in OTAs, which started Tuesday?(Cimini, May 19).

Wilkerson is entering the final year of his contract and is due to earn $6.96 million in 2015. The Jets have made it clear they?d like to lock Wilkerson into a long-term deal, and with close to $50 million in cap room, they have plenty of space to work with.

However, his future with the Jets became cloudy with the selection?of defensive end Leonard Williams?sixth-overall in this years draft (April?30).

Ballard is reported to be the Bears' top choice for their GM opening. He was a scout for the Bears from 2001-11. (Cimini, Jan. 2).

Although the Raiders are considered the favorites to land Jim Harbaugh should he leave San Francisco this off season, the Jets are monitoring his situation as well (Schefter, Nov. 30).

Reports of monitoring?Harbaugh are the first acknowledgement that the Jets are willing to part ways with head coach?Rex Ryan?(Cimini, Nov. 30).

Like Rex Ryan Jim Harbaugh is a polarizing figure, but maybe for extremely different reasons. ?Harbaugh has proven to be a successful coach?and has proven that he is something of a quarterback whisperer. ?Harbuagh?groomed Andrew Luck at Stanford, then took?Alex Smith off the garbage heap before?having?some read-option success with Colin Kaepernick before Kaep has?plummeted from the skies as he's shown an inability to mature as a passer,?seeing ghosts and not understanding how to read his routes or anticipate where the route concept will put a man open.
