Florham Park, NY (Sports Network) - The New York Jets announced Sunday that
the team has come to terms with cornerback Dee Milliner, the ninth overall
pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
The Jets selected Milliner out of Alabama, where he started 12 games and
totaled 51 tackles with two interceptions and 18 passes defensed while helping
the Crimson Tide win the 2012 National Championship during his junior
Milliner was named a unanimous first team All-American in his final season at
Alabama and is expected to fill the void left by former Jets cornerback
Darrelle Revis after he was shipped to Tampa Bay prior to the draft.
