According to Manish Mehta, Dee Milliner, the ninth overall selection in the 2013 NFL Draft by the New York Jets, has fired his agent and is seeking a replacement.
There's a mandatory 5-day waiting period, but I'm told that all signs point to Pat Dye representing Jets' Dee Milliner moving forward. #nyj— Manish Mehta(@MMehtaNYDN) May 17, 2013
Along with Geno Smith, that makes two draft picks on this team that have decided to change representation. Why, you might ask, did they fire their agents? The answer is that we don't know, and truthfully, it really isn't much of our business. Mehta alluded to the possibility that Milliner was unhappy he slipped out of the top five; he then contradicted his own report. We don't know why Milliner decided to find a new agent, but I can assure you, it doesn't matter nearly so much as getting Milliner healthy and on the field.
I'm waiting for the media to blow up and call Milliner a diva as they did Smith, but, as of this report, the world has not ended simply because another player decided to fire his probably poor representation.
