Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner was supposed to be here in Philadelphia today meeting with the Eagles, but that visit was cancel abruptly yesterday. Not sure if Milliner or the Eagles know something we don’t, but unless it’s a smokescreen, both parties are probably headed in different directions. I’m sure Milliner wants to go high in the draft, but if you listen to his latest comments, it seems he sure wouldn’t mind going to Cleveland. Milliner was in Cleveland to visit with the Browns, and told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that “he and Browns stud cornerback Joe Haden would become the NFL’s best cornerback tandem immediately.” “I really think we can,” Milliner said in a phone interview today. “Not to be cocky or anything, but I think we’d be two really dynamic players who could go out and do great things for this defense.” Milliner was asked if another tandem would be able to top them. “No, not right now, I don’t think so,” he said. “Oh man, that would be awesome. I think we’d make a great combo and we’d accomplish some great things together.” Milliner for as good as he is, was ecstatic to meet Haden, a guy he considers a hero. “I study the top cornerbacks in the league to see what techniques I can put into my arsenal,” Milliner. “I’ve watched film of guys like Champ Bailey, Darrelle Revis, Patrick Peterson and Joe. Joe has great fundamentals and he’s definitely going to be one of the great DBs in the game. I really enjoyed meeting him. I’ve played against him, but have never really gotten a chance to talk to him.” What would it mean to have the two roaming the defensive backfield together? “I definitely think we’d be a playoff contender,” Milliner said.
