Wilkerson participated in the team's mandatory minicamp last month, but he skipped the entire voluntary portion of the offseason program -- fueling speculation of a training camp holdout.
But he never gave it serious consideration, and he will report under his existing contract. Wilkerson, 25, is scheduled to make a guaranteed $6.97 million in the fifth and final year of his rookie contract.
Coach Todd Bowles said Monday he wasn't concerned about a potential holdout, but he also indicated he wouldn't be surprised one way or the other.
In mid-June, Wilkerson said he was "frustrated" but "very confident" a long-term deal could be reached. The Jets have said they'd like to re-up Wilkerson, one of their top players, but the two sides aren't close.
The Jets' first practice is Thursday in Florham Park, New Jersey.
