While Jets fans and beat writers seem to be losing their collective minds over the news of defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson being deactivated for this Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints for showing up "Very late" to a team meeting today, the reality of the situation is that fans should be thanking Wilkerson for delivering an early Christmas gift...a clear path to his release following this season as any injury risk is removed. "I'm not anxious about Mo right now", he said. He sat the first quarter against the Giants in 2015 and again against Miami last season when he also missed a walkthrough practice.

Todd Bowles announced on Friday that Wilkerson would not travel to New Orleans and would not give a reason why, saying it was "a coach's decision".

For a franchise that shed big names with big salaries during the past year while trying to change the culture around the team, it wouldn't be a surprise if the Jets cut Wilkerson in the offseason. Just two weeks ago, Bowles sat Wilkerson for nearly the entire first quarter for being late to a meeting.

Demario Davis said Bowles informed the team of Wilkerson's latest punishment.

At ICJ Pakistan rejects India's request for consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhav
Jadhav had filed an appeal with Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa to seek clemency, which is still pending. Keeping that in mind, Pakistan recently made a decision to allow Jadhav's wife and mother to visit him on December 25.

According to multiple reports, the 28-year-old Wilkerson arrived late to Friday morning's team meeting and tardiness continues to be an issue for the former Pro Bowler.

He's been disciplined three times for tardiness in the last three seasons, including the December 3 win over Kansas City, when he sat out the first quarter.

He broke his right leg at the end of that year, and it affected his play last season. While there would be $9 million in dead money, the Jets would save $11 million in cap space by releasing him.

Bowles said he had a discussion with Wilkerson, who was not available for comment in the Jets locker room.

Facebook agrees to pay millions more in tax
Google , for example, booked €26.3 billion of global revenues here past year , paying tax of €163 million tax in Ireland. Wehner said Facebook would implement the change throughout 2018 and aim to complete it by the first half of 2019.

Since signing his five-year, $86 million contract before 2016, Wilkerson has eight sacks in 28 games.

Now the Jets are without Wilkerson in The Big Easy and will nearly certainly part ways with him in the coming months. WR Jeremy Kerley is eligible to be activated after he returned to practice this week following a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancers.

"I made my decision", he said. NY has a roster exemption until 4 p.m. Monday, when they have to make another move to activate him or release him.
