To be filed in the “who didn’t see that coming” department, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News is reporting that New York Jets star defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson is not expected to take part in the team’s upcoming voluntary workout program.
Unsigned & franchised (& hoping to be traded/paid) Mo Wilkerson not expected to be at Jets voluntary workouts either https://t.co/aAuxon7HOa

Currently embroiled in a contract dispute that has many onlookers expecting an eventual trade, Wilkerson and the Jets appear headed for a divorce.
Still recovering from a leg fracture that he suffered in week 17, Wilkerson’s participation would be limited, but attending would allow him to check in with team trainers while taking part in the weight lifting portion of the workouts.
