Free agent DT Muhammad Wilkerson scheduled to visit Chiefs

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs apparently have some interest in free agent DT Muhammad Wilkerson. According to Calvin Watkins of Newsday, the Chiefs are on Wilkerson’s free agent visit.

Wilkerson, one of the top defensive linemen available, visited the Packers this week then it’s the Saints and then the Chiefs ... if he makes it to Kansas City and another team doesn’t sign him first.

The Jets cut him last week two years into a five-year, $86 million contract so something was going on there. Wilkerson was reported to have shown up late to meetings with the Jets so he’ll have to show free agent teams how dedicated he is. Or he’ll just have to be so good teams put up with showing up late.

The connection to the Chiefs is Bob Sutton, who was in New York for a couple years with Wilkerson.

The Chiefs were rumored to be interested in DT Star Lotulelei, who is scheduled for free agency. The Chiefs are set to lose Bennie Logan in free agency. They obviously have some interest in adding a defensive lineman at some point so keep an eye on free agent options and if they don’t find one there then the draft.
