This will end McMillan’s season before it even begins. He had re-signed with the Patriots on a one-year deal this offseason. 

McMillan, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2017. He was traded to the Raiders in 2020 as part of a pick swap. 

McMillan played out the final year of his four-year contract worth $4,697,532, which included a signing bonus of $1,556,388 and made a base salary of $1.10 million for the 2020 season.

McMillan then signed a one-year deal with the Patriots in 2021 and followed that up with a one-year extension in September despite tearing his ACL. He returned on another one-year deal for the 2023 season. 

In 2022, McMillan appeared in 16 games for the Patriots and recorded 35 tackles, a sack, a fumble recovery and a defensive touchdown.
