Jets released CB Dee Milliner from injured reserve.

The Jets shopped Milliner in the preseason, but were forced to stash him on I.R. with a hamstring injury. A 2013 first-rounder, Milliner is a massive bust from the John Idzik regime, appearing in just eight games the last two seasons. His release doesn't save New York any money against the cap. 25-year-old Milliner's pedigree and measurables are enough that he'll resurface but he's a major project.

Jets waived/injured CB Dee Milliner.

MMQB's Albert Breer reported Saturday the Jets were trying to find a trade partner, but they predictably failed to find any takers. They will likely reach an injury settlement in the near future. Cutting Milliner saves the Jets nothing against the cap, which shows exactly how much they wanted rid of the colossal first-round bust. Milliner has the pedigree and theoretical talent to get another shot, but he should slip through waivers unclaimed.

MMQB's Albert Breer confirms the Jets are shopping CB Dee Milliner.

This is pretty well known in league circles, but we suspect Milliner will be waived if the Jets can't find a dance partner. Milliner was the No. 9 overall pick in the 2013 draft. New York would likely take a seventh-rounder for him.
Sat, Sep 3, 2016 01:47:00 PM

NJ Advance Media's Darryl Slater believes Jets CB Dee Milliner has fallen behind fourth-rounder Juston Burris.

Milliner opened camp competing for the No. 3 job, but he has now fallen all the way to fifth on the depth chart. The Jets will not save any money by cutting the first-round bust, but they are certainly looking for trade partners. Buster Skrine will open the season opposite Darrelle Revis.
Sat, Sep 3, 2016 08:55:00 AM

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini expects Dee Milliner to push for the No. 3 corner job.

An epic first-round bust, Milliner has been limited to just 21 games over three seasons due to injuries and did not play a snap on defense last year. The Jets are thin at corner, however, and Milliner theoretically has more talent than current No. 3 Marcus Williams. If he can stay healthy, he should push Williams in camp. Darrelle Revis (wrist) and Buster Skrine are locked into the top two spots.

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports the Jets will not pick up CB Dee Milliner's fifth-year option for 2017.

It would have been a shock if they did. Milliner has managed just 21 appearances in three seasons and has not been effective even when on the field. Only 24, he will have a shot to earn the starting role opposite Darrelle Revis in training camp, but nothing thus far in his career suggests he will capitalize on the opportunity. The No. 9 overall pick in 2013, Milliner will likely go down as a massive bust.

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini doesn't expect New York to exercise its fifth-year option on CB Dee Milliner.

The Jets have exercised Sheldon Richardson's 2017 option, but it doesn't appear they'll do the same with Milliner. The 24-year-old has struggled to stay healthy and barely saw the field last season with Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie ahead of him on the depth chart. Milliner is not worth the $11.9 million price tag it would take to keep him for 2017.

The New York Daily News doesn’t expect the Jets to cut CB Dee Milliner.

Milliner has played in just 21 games since 2013. His $2.1M guaranteed should lock him into a spot. With Antonio Cromartie gone, Milliner will compete for the Jets’ No. 4 corner job.
Sat, Mar 5, 2016 09:05:00 PM

Jets activated CB Dee Milliner (wrist) from injured reserve-designated for return.

Milliner will slide in at the bottom of the depth chart, but could see some snaps Thursday night against the Bills with Antonio Cromartie (thigh) banged up.
Wed, Nov 11, 2015 01:48:00 PM

Jets coach Todd Bowles said the team is unlikely to activate CB Dee Milliner (wrist) for Week 9 against the Jaguars.

Milliner has resumed practicing at full speed but he might need another week. The Jets are already well-stocked at cornerback with Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie and Buster Skrine. There's no rush to get Milliner back on the field.
Fri, Nov 6, 2015 01:55:00 PM

Jets placed CB Dee Milliner (wrist) on injured reserve/designated for return.

Milliner will miss at least the first eight games of the season and will be eligible to return to the 53-man roster come Week 10. The former No. 9 overall pick is a walking injury, as he's undergone seven career surgeries. He's expected to be healthy in a couple weeks, but the Jets couldn't waste a roster spot on him.

Jets CB Dee Milliner (wrist) has undergone seven career surgeries.

The No. 9 pick of the 2013 draft, Milliner entered the league out of Alabama having already undergone five operations. He's since added Achilles' and wrist procedures. Although the timeline for his wrist operation is 6-8 weeks, Milliner could end up on I.R./designated to return if no other big injuries come up for Gang Green. Milliner is a backup, and the Jets not want to waste a roster spot on him for September and early October.
Sat, Aug 8, 2015 11:00:00 AM

Jets CB Dee Milliner is out 6-8 weeks after tearing a tendon in his right wrist in Thursday's training camp practice.

It's another huge injury blow to Milliner, who has rarely been healthy since the Jets selected him ninth overall in the 2013 draft. Milliner was competing for a sub-package role in new coach Todd Bowles' defense. For now, at least, it doesn't appear as if Milliner is a candidate for injured reserve.
Fri, Aug 7, 2015 01:12:00 PM

Jets CB Dee Milliner (Achilles') has been cleared for training camp.

Milliner tore his Achilles' last October. A forgotten man after the additions of Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie and Buster Skrine, Milliner faces an uphill climb to earn playing time in Todd Bowles' back end. Milliner was the ninth overall pick in the 2013 draft. He's missed 16 games through two years.
