One factor the Jets must consider when deciding what to do with Mo Wilkerson is the fact that his 2018 salary ($16.8M) is guaranteed against injury. The Jets could be on the hook for the money if he were to suffer a significant injury in the final two games. They want to avoid that because they're expected to cut ties with him after the season. His salary doesn't become FULLY guaranteed until the third day of the league year (March) if he's still on the roster, which he won't be.
