Jets Release 2013 First-Round Pick Dee Milliner From Injured Reserve List

Dee Milliner

Dee Milliner’s time with the Jets has officially come to a close, Connor Hughes of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

On Wednesday, the team released Milliner from its injured reserve. He is now free to sign with any team of his choosing and can play the remainder of the 2016 season.

The Jets waived/injured Milliner during the 53-man cutdown. He spent the first three weeks on the team’s injured reserve with a hamstring issue.

ESPN’s Field Yates was the first to report the Jets released Milliner from the IR.

Milliner, 25, was initially selected by the Jets with the No. 9 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. While he came to the team as the presumed replacement for the recently-traded Darelle Revis, his three years with the team were marred by injuries and ineffective play.

As a rookie, Milliner missed a large chunk of training camp with a high ankle sprain. In 2014, he ruptured his Achille’s tendon. In 2015, a wrist injury landed him on the short-term injured reserve. This year, the hamstring issue caused Milliner to miss valuable time in training camp and the preseason.

In this now Milliner’s fourth season, the cornerback has played just 21 games. Milliner has played in just eight of a potential 35 games the last three seasons.

Milliner has three career interceptions. All came as a rookie in 2013.

Jets Claim Former Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins Off Waivers

Austin Seferian-Jenkins

The Jets have claimed troubled tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins on waivers, Daryl Slater of the Newark Star Ledger reports.

Tampa Bay drafted him in Round 2 in 2014, but he has disappointed to date. Immediately after he was arrested for DUI on Friday, Tampa Bay waived him.

It wasn’t his first DUI arrest. While in college at the University of Washington, he was suspended one game during the 2013 season, due to a DUI arrest. Seferian-Jenkins was sentenced to one day in jail for that arrest.

Seferian-Jenkins still faces potential NFL discipline for his latest DUI arrest. It wasn’t his first misstep in the NFL. The Buccaneers’ coaches tossed him out of an organized team activities practice this spring because he wasn’t prepared.

But Seferian-Jenkins, who turns 24 on Thursday, is a young player with potential as a pass catcher.

Jets Self-Destruct; Give Up 8 Turnovers in 24-3 Loss to Chiefs


Derrick Johnson saw everybody else picking off passes for Kansas City and decided to join the party.

Then he figured he might as well score, too.

The veteran linebacker snagged one of six interceptions thrown by Ryan Fitzpatrick, scored one of the Chiefs’ two touchdowns off turnovers, and put an exclamation mark on a rather bizarre 24-3 victory over the hapless, turnover-prone New York Jets on Sunday.

“We put an emphasis on taking away the ball all the time,” said Johnson, who scored his fourth career TD. “If you can get a turnover, it’s a big momentum changer. And if you can score, it’s even bigger.”

A turnover? How about get eight.

Former Patriots Center Bryan Stork to Chat with the Jets


Free agent center Bryan Stork, formerly of the Patriots, is visiting the Jets on Tuesday, a league source confirmed to Darryl Slater of the Newark Star-Ledger.

Stork’s visit was first reported by NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport.

The Jets have some depth concerns on their offensive line right now, heading into Sunday’s game at the Chiefs.

In Thursday’s win at the Bills, left guard James Carpenter strained his calf. Wesley Johnson, who doubles as the backup center, replaced Carpenter on Thursday. So if Carpenter can’t play at the Chiefs, the Jets wouldn’t have a backup center, since Johnson would have to take Carpenter’s spot.

Stork, 25, was a fourth-round draft pick by the Patriots in 2014. They are the only team he has played for. They tried to trade him to Washington in late August, but Stork failed his physical, which voided the trade. The Patriots then cut him.
