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. May 2 - 11:45 AM

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.
Mar 5 - 9:05 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.

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.

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.

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.
Wed, Jul 29, 2015 06:20:00 PM

Jets CB Dee Milliner (Achilles') is a candidate for reserve/PUP.

Not only is Milliner coming off an Achilles' tendon rupture, but he's also been put in the toaster whenever he's been on the field. The smart play will be to let the former No. 9 overall pick take his time while watching Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie and Buster Skrine do their thing. Cutting a player with Milliner's talent while he has two fully guaranteed years left on his contract would be silly.
Mon, May 25, 2015 10:51:00 AM

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan wouldn't guarantee CB Dee Milliner (Achilles') being ready for the start of the season.

Milliner tore his Achilles' in October and may start the season on reserve/PUP, sidelining him the first six weeks. The former No. 9 overall pick has a lengthy injury history and will be behind the eight ball trying to learn coach Todd Bowles' new defense. Milliner is no higher than the No. 4 corner on the depth chart.
Thu, Mar 19, 2015 11:09:00 AM

The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reports teams have asked the Jets about Dee Milliner's trade availability.

Mehta didn't specify which teams have inquired, but it makes sense given the Jets' recent upgrades. The new regime also didn't draft Milliner. The Jets don't seem to be actively shopping the former No. 9 overall pick, who is still recovering from a torn Achilles' suffered in October, but their ears are open. Mehta pointed out that Milliner could still be of value to Gang Green, as coach Todd Bowles used a lineup featuring six or more defensive backs for 619 snaps last season.
Wed, Mar 18, 2015 08:16:00 AM

Jets CB Dee Milliner (Achilles') may not be ready to participate in football activities until early summer.

Beat writer Rich Cimini believes the Jets should consider anything they get from Milliner a "bonus" after an injury-plagued first two NFL seasons. New GM Mike Maccagnan stated at the Combine on Wednesday that the Jets plan to be active in free agency. Cornerback should be among their top targets.
Wed, Feb 18, 2015 09:25:00 PM

Jets placed LCB Dee Milliner on injured reserve with a torn right Achilles' tendon, ending his season.

It's not the news the Jets' struggling secondary needed to hear, but Milliner had barely contributed this season thanks to various injuries. The No. 9 overall pick of the 2013 draft will now head into his third NFL season having appeared in just 16 of a possible 32 games. He's trending the way of fellow-ballyhooed "safe" SEC prospect Morris Claiborne. Milliner should be ready for the start of next season's camp, but it's not a guarantee.
Mon, Oct 13, 2014 02:41:00 PM

The belief is that Jets CB Dee Milliner suffered a torn right Achilles' tendon in Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Broncos.

This is what it looked like when Milliner went down in a non-contact situation while trying to block a field goal. The disappointing No. 9 overall pick in the 2013 draft will undergo further testing Monday to confirm that diagnosis. A torn Achilles' would end Milliner's season.
