The Jets received a first-round pick as part of their compensation, and that No. 13 overall choice -- or their other first-rounder, No. 9 overall -- could be spent on Revis's replacement.Milliner thinks if the Jets acquire his services, they won't be sorry."I'm not trying to go in there and do what he did. I'll try to do what I can do and try to do more than what he did," the former Alabama defensive back said Wednesday, via ESPN New York."... I have to have confidence and faith in what I do.
