The Alabama alum signed with agents Pat Dye and Bill Johnson on Thursday, after the five-business-day waiting period expired, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport confirmed. The news was first reported by SportsBusiness Journal.
Milliner, who was projected by many pundits to be a top-five pick, dismissed Impact Sports and lead agent Tony Fleming after falling to ninth in the 2013 NFL Draft.
"I know that everything was done to ensure that Mr. Milliner would be drafted as high as possible," Fleming said to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport on Thursday. "Dee was the first cornerback selected, and he was drafted ninth overall to the New York Jets. This is a tremendous accomplishment. I wish Mr. Milliner future success in his professional career."
