However, Mehta’s sources have said that the Jets told interested teams that Milliner isn’t available at a “drastically discounted price.”
Mehta writes that it’s fair to wonder whether new Jets GM Mike Maccagnan would be willing to trade a player who has dealt with a number of injuries since entering the NFL if the price is right.
Sources have told Mehta that even though the Jets are reluctant to move him right now, a trade at a later point in time has not been ruled out.
Milliner, 23, still has another two years remaining on his four-year, $12.66 million rookie contract. He’ll make base salaries of $585,000 and $675,000 over the remainder of the agreement.
In 2014, Milliner was limited to appearing in just three games due to a torn Achilles he sustained in October. He recorded six tackles and two pass defenses for the Jets.
