Jets announce they're leaving star DE Muhammad Wilkerson home from road game

Wilkerson, the highest paid player on the team, has been disciplined several times in his career with the Jets for various offenses. Soon, it could be over.

Coach Todd Bowles said Wilkerson will be left home when the Jets travel to play the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Rather, he will be sidelined at the discretion of Todd Bowles, who described the move as a "coaching decision".

Bowles wouldn't say if it was a suspension or what led to the decision.

"I'm anxious about the guys that I'm coaching", Bowels said. "I'm not anxious about Mo right now", he said.

"I made my decision", he said. NJ.com previously reported that Wilkerson being late is a regular occurrence and that he sometimes misses meetings altogether.

More and more, it seems likely the Jets will part ways with the 28-year-old Wilkerson, who has a $20 million salary cap figure next year.

Now the Jets are without Wilkerson in The Big Easy and will nearly certainly part ways with him in the coming months.

Wilkerson was benched for a majority of the first quarter against the Chiefs on November 26 because he was late to a meeting the day before the game.

Bowles wasn't looking past this Sunday, however - nor was he going to elaborate on the troublesome Wilkerson.

The former Pro Bowler had been benched for the first quarter of the Jets' Dec. 3 game against the because he showed up late for a meeting on the eve of the contest. It marked the third straight year Wilkerson was benched a quarter for lateness.

In 2015, Wilkerson was benched for the first quarter against the Giants after arriving late to a meeting.

Wilkerson has eight sacks the last two years after signing a five-year, $86 million contract that many celebrated at the time.

"He won't be making the trip", Bowles repeatedly told reporters Friday.

Initially, Bowles didn't say whether Wilkerson would play in the team's final two games, against the Chargers and Patriots, but later he said the benching was just for the Saints game.
