In an appearance on Daily News Live presented by Citi, former Jets offensive lineman D'Brickashaw Ferguson said there's a likelihood that Jets Pro Bowl defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson will sign elsewhere.
"I don't know if he's going to remain a Jet," Ferguson said of his former teammate, who has had over 60 tackles three of the past four years. "I think if the Jets wanted to sign him to a long-term deal they would've done that, there's no reason why they couldn't have offered something earlier. I think that there's a likelihood that he might go somewhere else."
Wilkerson did not show up to OTAs for the Jets last week. The team placed a $15.4 million dollar franchise tag on him this offseason, but he did not sign his tender since he wants a long-term contract. The Jets also reportedly were open to trading Wilkerson earlier this offseason.
"I think he's a very talented player," Ferguson added of Wilkerson. "I think he's proven his ability. Nobody can block him, nobody can stop him."
The retired Jet also talked about the Ryan Fitzpatrick situation, how he's doing in retirement, eating dinner with Rex Ryan, and more.
