Jets, Milliner agree to terms

Dee Millner AP

Like Darrelle Revis, cornerback Dee Milliner held out of his rookie training camp.  The Jets hope the similarities will continue.

According to the team’s official website, the Jets have agreed to terms with the ninth overall pick in the 2013 draft.

The delay resulted directly from the offset issue.   The player wanted to secure the ability to double dip if he’s cut.  The team wanted credit for any money the player earns elsewhere, if he’s terminated at any point during his four-year guaranteed deal.

It’s unknown for now whether the Jets or Milliner blinked.  For now, our guess would be that the deal includes offset language.

Regardless, there’s now only one team who hasn’t signed:  Titans guard Chance Warmack, the 10th overall pick in the draft.

    Now he can starting counting down until he can leave the Jets as a free agent.

    [i] “The player wanted to secure the ability to double dip if he’s cut.”[/i]

    Probably more accurate to say the agent wanted street cred with the other agents.

    This may be the one situation where sitting out the year and re-entering the draft might be the better option

    Taking his rookie contract into consideration, I’d take him and his athletic skill set over Revis, knee surgery, and his 16mill every day of the week.

    Bout damn time! Anyway, I hope he turns into a Revis, in terms of his play, not his holdouts!

    JetsBlog reporting Millner blinked. Great job by Jets & Idzick. Now the season could begin. Cannot wait till the Jets officially get their letter for the playoffs so all the haters that predicted 2-14 could tell us how “lucky” they were…go Jets. It’s nice to have the circus w/Big Blue & NE this year — all is right in the world…

    Mark Sanchez was looking like a decent QB so they decided to bring in a decent DB!!

    The deal has offset language, but a huge bonus and minimum base salaries, which begs the question: what was the point?

    Good. Now he can hurry up and get on the field and become the bust we all know he will be. J-e-t-s suck suck suck

    The reason it took so long is they had to get all 65 people in management to agree.

    The new management team concept Rex alluded too.
