Muhammad Wilkerson is currently one of the best available free agents in the NFL. He’s not helping his chances of getting the kind of contract he wants, not after he goes and does a dumb thing like drinking and driving.
Wilkerson was arrested for drunk driving today, the New York Daily News reports.
Former New York Jets defensive lineman Muhammad (Mo) Wilkerson was busted for drunk driving early Saturday after he was caught rolling through a stop sign in Washington Heights, officials said.
Wilkerson, 29, was driving a 2019 Rolls Royce Suburban when he was pulled over on Riverside Drive and W. 168th St. at about 3:40 a.m., cops said.
Police were about to give him a ticket, but realized he was drunk behind the wheel.
Police pulled Wilkerson over at about 3:40 a.m. for running a stop sign, according to the report.
Officers said they suspected Wilkerson was drunk and he told them he had a shot and two beers.

A breathalyzer recorded his blood alcohol content at 0.09, which is just above the legal limit.
The 29-year-old Wilkerson played seven seasons with the Jets before signing with the Packers last year. An injury limited him to just three games in 2018.
If he wasn’t on anyone’s radar yet, he sure is now.
