New York Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson’s mother went off on a New York Daily News Jets beat writer, the funny thing is, Wilkerson is no longer a jet.
Free agency kicks off next week, but for Muhammad Wilkerson, the search for a new team has already begun. Released last month by the Jets, Wilkerson visited the Packers on Thursday and left without a deal, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.
Wilkerson is getting some terrible advice. The last place he should be near given his issues with alcohol is Bourbon Street/French Quarter. Who is advising this guy? https://t.co/gy1pQTXBZ3

Today Muhammad Wilkerson’s mother called into WFAN’s Boomer & Gio and ripped Mehta, mainly for calling him an alcoholic in the tweet above.
“I am livid. Manish has never ever liked Muhammad. … He’s always written horrible things about my son. …
“Where’s your proof, Manish, that Muhammad is an alcoholic? Like, really. You always say all these things, I can’t tell you Boomer, how I’m just livid. Why do you keep saying things about my son? The Jets released him, he’s moved on, so let’s just let it go.”
Janice Wilkerson wasn’t messing around, and she has every right to be upset. That’s her son, and defending is her maternal instinct. That’s great live radio.
