Rex Ryan may like Dee Milliner, but he’s not ready to stake his reputation on the Jets’ second-year cornerback. Ryan, who routinely heaps praise on his players without too much prodding, has taken a cautiously optimistic approach after Milliner’s rookie season was marked by injury and mental and physical lapses. “I feel good about Dee. I think Dee’s going to be a great...

Big Expectations: Dee Milliner Edition

The expectations have been high since the Jets selected Dee Milliner with the ninth overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft. Milliner was selected shortly after superstar cornerback Darrelle Revis was traded, leaving him with huge shoes to fill. After an up and down (or should I say down, then up) rookie season, Milliner’s locked in as the Jets number one corner heading into the 2014...

New York Jets: Solving the Cornerback Problem

Antonio Cromartie still has some good football left in him. That’s my opinion, or “take” as the kids call it these days. Of course, John Idzik knows football better than I do, and Cromartie will have to try to prove me right and Idzik wrong from Glendale, Arizona.

What to make of Dee Milliner

A slow start shouldn't doom Dee Milliner

Dee-Moted Jets wishing for a mulligan with Milliner

It’s early, but the returns are are poor on the 9th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft for the New York Jets. Cornerback Dee Milliner was billed as the heir apparent to Darrelle Revis, he is apparently not at this point in the season. Only two games, he was benched in the Jets loss to the New England Patriots with no timetable for a return to the starting lineup. Coupled with a...
