Report: Jets received trade inquiries about Dee Milliner
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.
