Jets Sign Dee Milliner

Al Bello

The Jets and first round pick Dee Milliner have reached an agreement on a contract to end the cornerback's holdout.

The Jets now have all of their Draft picks under contract. It would have been nice to see Milliner get in camp on time, but at least he only missed a handful of practices. Now he has to get up to speed as he figures to have a significant role on this defense. Rex Ryan has essentially announced the defense is going to get more aggressive this year, which means the cornerbacks are going to have to have a ton on their plates and cannot expect much help. Whether he is listed second or third on the depth chart, he will get a lot of playing time, and opponents will test the rookie.
