Defensive Lineman Preps for His 1st Training Camp as a Member of the Saints

Behind the Facemask: Jimmy Wilkerson

Defensive lineman Jimmy Wilkerson enters his first season with the New Orleans Saints and eighth in the NFL. This will be his third-straight year in the NFC South as he was a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers the previous two seasons. Prior to joining Tampa Bay, the former University of Oklahoma star played his first five years in the league for the Kansas City Chiefs. Wilkerson is coming off his best season as a pro after starting the first 15 games of 2009 and collecting 66 total tackles, six sacks and three forced fumbles.

Q: How has your time been in New Orleans since signing with the Saints in April?

JW: “So far everything has been great. The players have really been friendly and have helped me out a lot. They give me as much knowledge as they can, especially the defensive linemen. This team is all about getting back to the Super Bowl. Sometimes, you deal with guys that don’t want anything to do with you because they think you are just there to take their spot. These guys aren’t like that. We all have the same goal.”

Q: You were very familiar with the Saints after playing for their division rival the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but what specifically attracted you to New Orleans?

JW: “The coaches really attracted me to come here. Starting with coach Gregg (Williams), the defensive line coach Bill Johnson and when I met Coach (Sean) Payton he put the icing on the cake. I was very excited to come here after meeting them because I didn’t know they were interested in me at first. When my agent told me I would be flying to New Orleans for a visit I was ecstatic. I want to help this team get back to the Super Bowl.”
