NY Jets Reach Deal With Top Draft Pick Dee Milliner

It took 3 months, but I guess the phrase “better late than never” applies here. On Sunday, the New York Jets finally reached a contract agreement for their top pick from April’s draft, cornerback Dee Milliner out of Alabama.

The 9th overall pick, who is being asked to step into the big shoes left behind from Darrelle Revis, has signed a fully-guaranteed 4-year deal, worth $12.66 million. As part of the deal, the 2-time National Champion and 1st-team All-American received a signing bonus of just under $7.6 million. The long delay in getting this deal done isn’t hugely on the Jets, as Milliner changed agents during the negotiating process.

Milliner underwent shoulder surgery in March to repair a torn labrum, which caused a red flag for some teams that were interested in drafting him, but he now says he is focused and ready to go with his health and conditioning. The Jets open their preseason schedule on Friday August 9 at the Detroit Lions.
