Finally, we have some good news to report about the team’s top draft pick.

First reported by our buddy Jake Steinberg, than other sources began rolling in, announcing that the Jets have come to terms on a contract with 9th overall pick, CB Dee Milliner from Alabama. He has been working out on his own while the team and his representatives worked out his rookie contract. Word is he will be in camp Monday.

The Jets needed him in camp quite badly, especially after the injury to Aaron Berry, losing him for the season. Terms of the contract were not disclosed at the time of this post, but we know that the salaries are pre-determined. Reports were that the dispute holding the contract up was over offset language.

That means the entire draft is signed, finally, and set to work out together in Cortland. The rookies need all the time they can get learning the system, so this news couldn’t come soon enough. Now the Jets can finally get rolling with a full squad.

    I’m just glad it didn’t drag out for weeks. I guess we can expect our fat stupid friend with the cowboy hat covering the hole in his head to return with a new name any minute now… How can you tell a Tampa bay fan? ->->->->->->->->->->->-> they have more fingers than teeth!

      I hope not…but I am going to do what I can to block his IP address if he does come back

      They are the ones that will be crying when Revis plays “the hammy game”
      His hamstring healed miraculously with the new contract!! Expect him to hold out next season! LOL

    Idzik works his magic again! Signs Milliner to a 4 year contract with a team option for a fifth year!!!! He also gets the offset language in the contract that he wanted. Idzik is gaining a reputation as someone that cannot be pushed around unlike our previous GM. This is absolutely great news!

      He definitely is showing everyone that he can get what we wants done.

    Idjik is really beginning to grow on me! The Jets might have found the answer at GM!! Dee needs to be full speed for opening day, we’ll see about the conditioning quickly, I hope he’s in shape!

      I think we all share that hope Paul.
