Jets rookie cornerback Dee Milliner finds new agency
New York Jets rookie cornerback Dee Milliner can now focus on getting a contract done because he has a new agent after being required to wait for a league-required five business days to hire new representation, reports the SportsBusiness Journal.
The time period actually ended Thursday after Milliner fired his previous agents, Impact Sports on May 10.
Milliner fired Impact Sports and lead agent Tony Fleming after falling out of the top-five in the 2013 NFL Draft. Milliner ended up signing with agents Pat Dye and Bill Johnson on Thursday.
“I know that everything was done to ensure that Mr. Milliner would be drafted as high as possible,” Fleming said to NFL.com. “Dee was the first cornerback selected, and he was drafted ninth overall to the New York Jet. This is a tremendous accomplishment. I wish Mr. Milliner future success in his professional career.”
The Jets next selection in the draft, quarterback Geno Smith, also fired his agents after the draft.
