Despite missing the first few days of camp and not being able to practice since becoming a member of the Jets, Milliner doesn’t feel he’ll have much catching up to do.
“I hope when he plays, there are those comparisons, and I understand where people are coming from,” Rex Ryan said. “But Darrelle was a special player. Dee Milliner is never going to be Darrelle Revis. He’s going to be Dee Milliner.”
Less is more, Rex. Instead of becoming a complete football coach, dance with what brought you to this level: defense.
The Jets’ first-round draft pick, cornerback Dee Milliner, did not show up to camp on Thursday and is holding out over his rookie contract.
Former Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis seems to be loving his new team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, much more than Gang Green.
Darrelle Revis is long gone. So is Tim Tebow. And so are several other players from last year’s dismal Jets team. It’s time to start fresh at Camp Cortland.

Johnson did acknowledge on Tuesday that fans should “be patient and have trust we’re doing the best thing for your team.” But on the other hand, he wants fans to know that there will be excitement in East Rutherford this coming season.
Newest Jets Sheldon Richardson and Dee Milliner aren’t sweating the pressure of playing in New York.
According to Yahoo! Sports, the Jets and offensive lineman D’Brickashaw Ferguson are set to restructure his deal, saving the Jets $5.128 million in cap space.
Don’t let the defensive picks from Thursday night change your understanding of the reality. If Ryan truly yielded power in that war room, the offense would be trotting out new weapons on Friday.
Dee Milliner. Doesn’t sound like Darrelle Revis, does it? Lacks a certain ring and, right now, a certain set of credentials.
The New York Jets are loading up on defense by taking Missouri defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson with the 13th overall pick in the NFL draft.
The Jets selected Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner at number 9 overall in the NFL Draft.
When asked if he could replace Revis for New York, former LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu confidently told reporters, “I feel like I’m the guy to do it.”
