"It's always a good challenge to go up against one of the greatest quarterbacks in our division. I'm looking forward to that," the former Alabama cornerback said Thursday, via USA Today. "Hopefully, I get my hands on a couple of his balls and take them back."
During the montage following the Jets selecting Milliner at No. 9 overall, NFL Network's Mike Mayock lamented that the only thing missing from the corner's game was an ability to catch the ball. So getting a hand on Brady's passes will be one thing. Catching them and taking them back will be something the rookie will have to work out.
"Everybody wants a piece of Tom Brady and guys of their stature," defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson said after the Jets took him No. 13 overall. "They don't get touched a lot, really, or throw picks. So we've got to make him do that."
While Jets fans might not be thrilled to have parlayed Revis into a rookie corner and a non-flashy defensive tackle -- who is a stud, by the way -- stacking pieces aimed at decelerating Brady's dominance never is a bad thing.
