Just when you thought the Jets couldn’t get any more messier, the shadow of Darrelle Revis has crept back to the forefront.

Whether you want to talk about it or not, Dee Milliner was drafted to replace Revis at cornerback.  The ninth pick in the draft got off to a slow start before he was even drafted, after he had to have shoulder surgery during the spring.

Milliner got abused at times by Patriots receivers, and if it wasn’t for Kenbrell Thompkins drop a touchdown and several other balls, Milliner may have been the cause of the Jets getting blown out.

Milliner was removed from the game and benched by head coach Rex Ryan.

The New York Daily News is reporting that Milliner’s benching is likely to continue as the rookie from Alabama struggles to adjust to the NFL.

“I don’t know. We’ll see,” Ryan said about his starting status. “The young man, like I said before, it’s unfortunate that he missed so much work. All of minicamp rehabbing the shoulder surgery. He missed a lot of training camp as well, so we kind of just threw him into the fire.”

“That’s what this kid’s lacking, is just the NFL experience. He did play on the biggest stage in college football (at Alabama). I think it’s just a matter of time before he makes the adjustments to the NFL game.”
