Muhammad Wilkerson will not be in an Atlanta Falcons uniform next season but we can dream, right? Wilkerson is the best pass rushing defensive end in the 2016 free agency class and would be a huge pickup for the Falcons. Sadly, it won’t happen.

Wilkerson will be offered an outrageous contact by his current team, the New York Jets and will likely sign a longterm deal but there is a slight chance here, folks. If the Falcons were to sign him they could very well win the offseason.
