The Jets will hold their first practice of training camp on Thursday.
Milliner, 23, played just three games last season due to an ankle injury he suffered in training camp and an Achilles tendon tear he suffered in October.
In football, ability without durability means nothing. Milliner has fought to stay healthy dating back at least to when he was coming into the league. An Achilles tendor tear is serious business, but he's had a long time to recover so hopefully he can return to form and stay active for all 16 games this season.
Antonio Cromartie "grilled" Dee with some questions this spring, but it seemed like the veteran was taking a playful jab at the younger player and poking fun at the press potentially overplaying his health as he entered training camp. Either way, Milliner is a man who looks to be entering this season as the team's fourth corner, but who could jump to second if he proves himself for Todd Bowles this year and Cromartie's play isn't good enough to warrant the money necessary to keep him for the 2016 season. But all that hinges on the ninth overall pick from the 2013 NFL Draft actually staying on the field.
