Report: Jets received trade inquiries about Dee Milliner

Wednesday March 18th, 2015

The New York Jets have received trade inquiries about cornerback Dee Milliner, reports the New York Daily News’s Manish Mehta.

Milliner, the ninth overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft, was placed on season-ending injured reserve last October after tearing his Achilles tendon while trying to block a field goal.


According to the report, the Jets aren’t actively putting Milliner on the trade block and have told teams interested in Milliner that he "isn’t available at a drastically discounted price."

During this off-season, the Jets have signed Darrelle Revis to a five-year, $70 million contract, signed former Browns cornerback Buster Skrine to a four-year deal worth $25 million and have given Antonio Cromartie $32 million over four years.

Last year, the Jets allowed 31 touchdowns passes, third-most in the NFL.

Milliner has missed a total of 16 games during his first two seasons because of various injuries. He is scheduled to make $585,000 in base salary next season and will count $3.453 million against the salary cap in 2015.

Milliner, 23, has three interceptions and 19 passes defensed in this two NFL seasons.
