    Report: Jets' Muhammad Wilkerson will not hold out
    Standout Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson will head into training camp without a new contract. But he will not hold out in an effort to receive a new deal, the New York Post's Brian Costello reports.
    Wilkerson turned out for last month's mandatory minicamp after skipping OTAs. He would not answer a question about whether he would hold out for training camp while talking with reporters there.
    The 25-year-old is heading into the fifth and final year of his rookie contract. He will earn $6.969 million in 2015 under his current deal, slightly more than he's earned through his first four seasons in the NFL. However, Wilkerson has not received the multi-year extension he seeks. Contemporaries from the 2011 draft class like the Steelers' Cameron Heyward, Saints' Cameron Jordan and Chargers' Corey Liuget all inked lucrative extensions over the last few months.
    “I am frustrated, yeah,” Wilkerson said in June, via Costello. “I thought that a deal would be made, but at the end of the day, it’s a business and these things take time.”
    A new deal is not imminent for Wilkerson as the club and his agent do not agree on the defensive lineman's value. With the regular season less than two months away, he will likely play out the last year of his contract in 2015. The Temple product will be a free agent next spring, and if he puts together a big season, he will earn a big payday.
    Wilkerson has 24.5 sacks, seven forced fumbles, a fumble recovery, 237 tackles and 14 passes defended since he joined the Jets in 2011. Gang Green really needs him now because Pro Bowl defensive end Sheldon Richardson will miss the first four games due to a violation of of the league's substance-abuse policy.

    Former first-round pick Coples impressing new Jets regime
    This season is a big one for Quinton Coples, the Jets' rush outside linebacker, Darryl Slater of reports.

    Yes, the Jets have picked up the fifth-year option in his rookie contract, which means they can retain him for 2016 — if they want to.

    The Jets don't have to make a decision about Coples' 2016 contract status until next March.

    At least one person in the Jets' organization likes what he's seen from Coples so far. That would be the Jets' new outside linebackers coach, Mark Collins.

    "He plays with very good violence," Collins said. "He can set the edge in the run. He can finish plays in the run game. He can push the pocket. He can affect the quarterback. It doesn't mean he's always going to sack the quarterback, but he can affect the quarterback. I definitely think his arrow is pointing up." 

    It sounds like head coach Todd Bowles and Collins envision Coples doing a bunch more pass rushing, and less coverage — especially compared to what he did last year.

    "If you're just looking at it from a common sense [standpoint], you've got a 280-pound guy, so naturally, you want him to rush the passer versus drop into coverage," Collins said. "Obviously, for him, you want him rushing the passer more than you want him dropping into coverage. But in the same sense, we're demanding, and we want him to be able to do both."

    Through three seasons, Coples has accumulated modest sack numbers — 5½ as a rookie, 4½ in 2013, and 6½ last season. Still, when Collins examined Coples' film, the coach wasn't discouraged by the lack of sacks.

    "I think in a lot of ways, numbers sometimes can be overrated," Collins said. "He does a lot of things. He may not have great sack production, but he does a lot of other things very well. I know he has aspirations to change that production, and I have full confidence that he will. But I think there are a lot of things that he does well."

    Kraft will not appeal NFL punishment
    5/18/2015 7:24:13 PM
    The NFL and the New England Patriots are engaged in "back-channel conversations" to see if the two sides can resolve their differences without an appeal or possible litigation following the league's Deflategate punishment, sources told Adam Schefter of ESPN.
    The Patriots are weighing their next move in terms of reacting to the discipline meted out by the NFL and have until before Friday to file an appeal of their penalties, which consist of the loss of two draft picks -- including a first-rounder -- and a $1 million fine.
    The team's penalties were for, among other issues, what the NFL said was a lack of cooperation with the investigation.

    Kraft, when asked by Peter King of MMQB whether he would violate NFL bylaws by going to court to try to get the league penalties overturned, declined to comment, saying, "I'm not going to comment on that at this point in time. I'm going to leave it. I won't say."
    Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was suspended for four games for his likely knowledge of the use of underinflated footballs in the AFC title game against the Indianapolis Colts. Brady has officially appealed his suspension to the league.
