Jets' Wilkerson reportedly will show up for camp despite contract dispute
NEW YORK -- A person familiar with Muhammad Wilkerson's plans says the defensive end will report for training camp with the New York Jets despite being unhappy with his contract.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday because neither Wilkerson nor the Jets announced the decision.
Wilkerson reported for mandatory minicamp last month, but was non-committal about showing for training camp. He stayed away from the team's facility during voluntary workouts and practices earlier in the offseason while looking for a long-term deal.
Wilkerson, one of the key parts of new coach Todd Bowles' defense, is in the last year of his rookie contract and is due to make $6.97 million this season.
The Jets report for camp Wednesday at their facility in Florham Park, New Jersey.
