Jets wrap up deal with Milliner
By Rich Cimini
CORTLAND, N.Y. -- The Jets agreed to terms Sunday night with top pick Dee Milliner, who will sign a four-year, $12.66 million contract. The former Alabama cornerback, who missed three practices, will report Monday to training camp, according to the team.
The big question is, will Milliner be cleared for immediate participation and, if so, to what extent? He underwent shoulder surgery in March to repair a torn labrum and he missed the entire offseason program. Milliner will be in serious catch-up mode. If he's in decent shape -- he reportedly was working out in Alabama -- and if he's as good as the Jets think he is, Milliner should be an Week 1 starter.
