Dee Milliner’s rocky rookie season ends with AFC defensive player of the week

Things did not start off well for Jets cornerbackDee Milliner in his rookie season.

Milliner battled injuries during the summer and then got benched more than once early in the year as teams picked on him to positive effect in the passing game. Rex Ryan offered weekly support for the rookie, but the results didn’t get better right away.

They did eventually get better, though. Safety Ed Reed took on a mentorship role with Milliner and the rookie closed the season showing improved play. That culminated in two interceptions and a large hand in a quiet day from wide receiver Mike Wallace in the 20-7 Jets win that knocked the Dolphins out of playoff contention.

Milliner has been named the AFC defensive player of the week as a result, leaving things on a high note that creates a lot more optimism about his future than there was a month ago. If Milliner can build on that, Ryan’s praise of Milliner when he was struggling will seem a lot less hyperbolic than some other things Ryan’s said over the years.

Congratulations Dee, you earned it and thanks to Ed Reed, who probably has it in him

to be a great secondary coach, which we will need.

This is great news!  Geno and Milliner both have reasons to feel good as they head into the offseason.  Same for Brian Winters, he had such a rough time early on but he improved as well.

 

The Jets are going to need all 3 of them to start next year (most likely for Geno).

This would be huge for us if Milliner can start playing consistently good to reflect his first round pick

Agree, if these 3 guys can be even solid players next year we have a chance to be a very good football team next season.

 

Hell, If Geno alone can be solid we have a chance to be a very good team.

 

It's hard not to be encouraged by what we saw from these guys and the monster they got in Richardson.

 

A good offseason this year and we should be a real threat next season.

The Jets added Ivory, Winters, Richardson, Geno, Nelson and Bohanon who are all players that should help next year and beyond.  They did this with no cap room and a new GM.  

 

Interesting to think what they will look like next year if they can add 6 players who have an even bigger impact.  (WR1, WR2, TE, Safety, OG).  It is wishful thinking but that is what the offseason is for!
