Free-agent DE Wilkerson set to visit with Seahawks on Thursday

Free-agent defensive end Jimmy Wilkerson will visit the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday, according to a league source.

Wilkerson, a seven-year NFL veteran who's coming off a career season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but also a significant knee injury, had a very productive meeting with the New Orleans Saints earlier this week. The Saints have interest in signing him, but Wilkerson has ties to the Seahawks' coaching staff and will explore options with them.

Wilkerson had a career-high six sacks and 46 tackles in 15 games last season.
