The veteran defensive linemen has agreed to terms on a deal to join the team once the new league year begins, per ESPN's Rob Demovsky.

The former first-round pick was part of a defensive line many thought would be dominant. Damon Harrison left in free agency, Sheldon Richardson was traded and now Wilkerson is gone to Green Bay.

Tom Pelissero of says the contract is one year, $5 million with up to $3 million in incentives.

He extended his 2018 win streak to 13 matches and has only dropped three sets from 34 played this year. Fernando Verdasco, who defeated Grigor Dimitrov in the second round, will play against Taylor Fritz.

He'll also get to do playing with his old defensive coordinator Pettine, who was on the Jets with Rex Ryan when Wilkerson was drafted by NY back in 2011. It was a major point of contention when the Packers switched general managers and put Brian Gutekunst in charge this offseason.

Under new leadership in the front office the Green Bay Packers are approaching free agency with more aggression than ever before.

Now Wilkerson will come back home to face the Jets when the Packers come to MetLife Stadium this season.

Harry Kane 'ruled out until May'
Harry Kane is out until May and faces a desperate battle to be fully fit for the World Cup . Kane is definitely ruled out of Tottenham's FA Cup clash with Swansea on Saturday.

NY signed Wilkerson, the team's first-round pick in the 2011 draft, to a five-year extension that included $53 million in guarantees after his Pro Bowl season in 2015, but it did not fare out as planned. Wilkerson produced eight sacks in 28 games over the past two seasons.

Former New York Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine joining the Packers' coaching staff could've been the deciding factor for Wilkerson if his offers all amounted to one-year prove it deals, like the contract he signed with Green Bay. If Wilkerson plays motivated every play, he could be a force.

It's fair to say Mike Daniels is pleased with the signing.
