New York Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson has been one of the best defenders on the team's roster over the past few years, and he has clearly outperformed his rookie contract. Usually, that would lead a player to begin lobbying for a long-term contract extension and a pay raise, but Wilkerson is taking a different approach.

With an attitude that will surely help him gain some fans among the Jets faithful, Wilkerson has said that he has no plans of holding out, and he also hopes to stay in a Jets uniform for the remainder of his career.

“I told them at the end of the year last year that I want to be a Jet -- a Jet for life,” Wilkerson said, via Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post. “I’m from the area [Linden, N.J.], I’m a local guy, so I would love to be here and finish my career here.”

Being with one team for your entire career is something rare these days, but if Wilkerson is honest about his love for the city and the team then it could very well become a possibility.
