There have been no new developments in negotiating a new deal for Muhammad Wilkerson, Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan said Friday.

Wilkerson, who is seeking a contract extension, has been a no-show at the team's voluntary offseason workouts, which began earlier this month. But Maccagnan didn't seem overly concerned about the defensive lineman's absence.

"Mo is under contract, as we're all aware. It's voluntary, so I think I'll probably leave it at that," the GM said during his pre-NFL draft news conference. "I don't really want to comment on if I'd like him to be here or not be here. I'm sure Mo is doing a good job -- wherever he is -- working out. But again, these are all voluntary, so he's not required to be here for them."

Maccagnan did acknowledge that he "was aware there was a possibility" Wilkerson would skip the voluntary workouts.

As for the status of Wilkerson's contract negotiations, the GM said "there's a time and a place for it."

"We'll deal with Mo and his agent, obviously, at some point in time here," Maccagnan said. "But I had truly been so focused on the draft, and I have other things I've been dealing with, obviously, for my job."
