Sheldon Richardson, left, and Dee Milliner, right, are ready for Tom Brady, Images via ESPN.com and DraftInsiders.com With their two first-round draft choices, Nos. 9 and 13 overall,  the New York Jets opted to shore up their defense. At No. 9, they selected Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner to replace Pro Bowl cover man Darrelle Revis, who was dealt to Tampa Bay. At No. 13, the pick they got in exchange for Revis, the Jets grabbed Missouri defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson, who is expected to boost the team’s interior pass rush. Both rookies know exactly who they were brought in to deal with: Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Via USA Today, this is what Milliner  had to say about facing New England’s All-Pro passer: “It’s always a good challenge to go up against one of the greatest quarterbacks in our division. I’m looking forward to that. Hopefully I get my hands on a couple of his balls and take them back.” Get his hands on a couple of Brady’s balls? Careful Dee, that’s probably a 15-yard penalty and a $20,000 fine. All joke aside, the Jets’ other first-round pick was just as eager to make Brady’s life a little tougher two Sundays out of the year. Via NFL.com: “Everybody wants a piece of Tom Brady and guys of their stature. They don’t get touched a lot, really, or throw picks. So we’ve got to make him do that.” The Jets know who they’ve got to take down if they want to make waves in the AFC East. And from the sound of it, they just acquired two players who know exactly who public enemy number 1 is when you’re a Jet, and what they’ve got to do to help Gang Green get back into playoff contention.   The post Jets’ first-round rookies eager to face Tom Brady appeared first on New York Sports Kings.
