Milliner now must wait five days before hiring a new agency.
Tony Fleming was the lead agent for Milliner, and he released a statement, saying Milliner had terminated the company.
“I know that everything was done to ensure that Mr. Milliner would be drafted as high as possible,” Fleming said. “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.”
Impact Sports has represented 12 first-round picks since 2000, with several in the top 10. Milliner is the first during that time to part ways with them.
Milliner will reportedly sign with Pat Dye who has a stable of former Alabama players.
