Jets decline 2017 option on dud Dee Milliner

The Jets decided not to pick up the fifth-year option for 2017 on cornerback Dee Milliner. Milliner, whom the team drafted with the ninth overall pick in 2013, has been an injury-prone disappointment. He has played just 21 games in three years, starting 14. He has three career interceptions. Milliner played just five games last season...

As expected, Jets pass on Dee Milliner option

Jets Decline CB Dee Milliner’s Fifth-Year Option

The New York Jets have declined to pick up CB Dee Milliner‘s fifth-year option on Monday, according to Brian Costello. The fifth-year option would have run the Jets $11.9 million in 2017, but was guaranteed only for injury and wouldn’t have prevented them from working on a long-term extension over the next year. Clearly, that’s a lot of money for a player who hasn’t come...

New York Jets: Secondary hurting in more ways than one

Geno Smith and Michael Vick made no bad mistakes. David Harris was at the center of most of the big plays on defense. Chris Johnson could have done a little better than a half-yard per carry. But Jets fans know what the real story coming out of Thursday’s preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts was: the defensive secondary was as sloppy as expected. Now, two injuries sustained...

New York Jets: Solving the Cornerback Problem

Antonio Cromartie still has some good football left in him. That’s my opinion, or “take” as the kids call it these days. Of course, John Idzik knows football better than I do, and Cromartie will have to try to prove me right and Idzik wrong from Glendale, Arizona.

New York Jets: Breaking The Dee Milliner Narrative

The Jets’ beat writers, half of CBS’ announcers, ESPN over-saturating every news story, not being able to find some decent internet on vacation to sit down and write an article, etc. Lately, a new frustration has risen to the top of things that are simply foolish. That would be the negative elucidation of rookie...
