A couple years ago, Muhammad Wilkerson received a five-year, $86 million deal after proving to be one of the most dominant defensive linemen in the National Football League in 2015. Damon Harrison left in free agency, Sheldon Richardson was traded and now Wilkerson is gone to Green Bay.

Although there are some concerns regarding Wilkerson's willingness to give 100 percent game in and game out, the Packers could have a bargain on their hands if he lives up to his potential.

It made a decision to re-examine its coverage to mark 50 years since civil rights leader Martin Luther King was murdered. National Geographic magazine says its coverage of people around the world has been "racist" in the past.

Wilkerson is clearly betting on himself to rehab his value around the league by playing for a year under Packers defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, his coach in NY for the first two seasons of his NFL career. Wilkerson will play under a one-year deal worth $5 million, plus $3 million in incentives, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported. He took a one-year deal and will have a chance to prove he's the player he was.

Considering free agency doesn't officially begin until Wednesday afternoon, Gutekunst has made a fine start with the signings of both Wilkerson and tight end Jimmy Graham. Pettine could also be a reason why Wilkerson chose Green Bay. Coach Mike McCarthy fired defensive coordinator Dom Capers in January after nine seasons.

Not many were expecting him to start against Liverpool and he had a good match, not just about scoring goals. We are all in it together. "Sometimes you are in the team, sometimes you are not".

Wilkerson, 28, is a seven-year veteran with the New York Jets. The longtime Jet recorded just eight sacks in the past two seasons, and he struggled to consistently generate pressure.

With Wilkerson now in the fold, the Packers have a formidable defensive line that also includes Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark. He noted it's a "position we're looking at heavily" on Tuesday evening, via ESPN.
