East Rumors: Wilkerson, Meriweather, Dolphins

The latest from the AFC and NFC East..

  • Muhammad Wilkerson says he’s not concerned about his contract situation with the Jets, writes Dan Martin of the New York Post. Because of the CBA, teams can exercise an option for a fifth year on rookie contracts for players taken in the first round of the 2011 draft. It’s a team-friendly clause, and while the defensive end can renegotiate his deal, he says he has “no clue” what is going on with his contract. Meanwhile, Wilkerson is glad to have coach Rex Ryan back for another season.
  • Brandon Meriweather‘s contract with the Redskins voids five days after the Super Bowl, writes Mark Maske of the Washington Post. The two sides re-worked his contract last year but it appears that they didn’t add an option to potentially keep him in 2014. Meriweather is coming off of a two-year, $6MM pact and could still return to Washington.
  • James Walker of ESPN.com details his impressions of Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey from his introductory press conference. Meanwhile, USA Today’s Brent Sobleski runs down the draft impact that the hiring will have on Miami.
