The Jets agreed to a four-year deal with first-round DL Muhammad Wilkerson, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

Wilkerson, out of Temple, was the 30th overall pick of the draft. The contract has three years guaranteed.

Wilkerson is expected to be the team's five-technique of the future.

The Jets announced that fifth-round WR Jeremy Kerley signed his rookie contract, leaving third-round NT Kenrick Ellis as the only draft pick not to sign.
