It’s rough being the player that replaces a legend, yet those are exactly the shoes Milliner will walk in, as he tries to replace the consensus top cornerback in all of football.

After Darrelle Revis was traded to the Buccaneers, the Jets used the 9th overall pick in the draft, to selected the extremely talented Milliner out of Alabama.

Milliner will face a ton of pressure being selected that high, and Ryan is trying to temper those expectations a bit.  Ryan told ESPN New York that “Milliner is never going to be Darrelle Revis.”

“Dee Milliner is never going to be Darrelle Revis,” Jets coach Rex Ryan said Monday, shortly before Milliner arrived at training camp. “He’ll just be Dee Milliner, and I think that will be good enough.”

Milliner is scheduled to begin practice with his new teammates Tuesday,  and said he is fully recovered from the shoulder surgery that kept him out of offseason workouts.

The Jets initially will limit the cornerback in practice, but expect him at some point to start at Cornerback, just as Revis once did.
