The Jets have agreed to a contract with Sheldon Richardson, one of their two first round picks according to Manish Mehta.
Now that Sheldon Richardson has agreed to terms and will show up for camp tomorrow, Dee Milliner is the only Jets draft pick without a deal— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) July 25, 2013
That leaves the other first round pick, Dee Milliner, as the only unsigned pick on the eve of training camp opening.
There is offset language in Sheldon Richardson deal. Wasn't point of contention. However, it is a hurdle in Dee Milliner negotiations #nyj— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) July 25, 2013
We will see what happens, but the new rookie wage scale makes a protracted holdout less likely than it might have been in the past. It also might have kept the sides from moving quicker to get something done. Hopefully the sides work into the night and get this done.
