- Details on Milliner contract
CORTLAND, N.Y. — GM John Idzik told people close to him he wasn’t going to bend on the issue of offset language in Dee Milliner’s contract — or any rookie contract, for that matter. And he didn’t. Milliner’s four-year, $12.66 million contract, fully guaranteed, includes the offset.
Basically, the offset prevents Milliner from “double dipping.” If he gets cut by the Jets during the contract, which is unlikely, the salary he receives from his new team is subtracted from the salary he was due to make — and that difference is the Jets’ responsibility.

CORTLAND, N.Y. — It’s Dee Day.
The training-camp spotlight will be focused Monday on rookie CB Dee Milliner, who agreed to a four-year contract Sunday night. The Jets have big plans for their top pick, chosen ninth overall, but it’ll fascinating to gauge his physical condition. Remember, Milliner never — repeat, never — has participated in a practice for the Jets. He sat out the offseason program, recovering from March shoulder surgery.
“I think we’ll be able to get him up to speed quickly,” defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman said Saturday, before a deal was imminent.

- Jets wrap up deal with Milliner
CORTLAND, N.Y. — The Jets agreed to terms Sunday night with top pick Dee Milliner, who will sign a four-year, $12.66 million contract. The former Alabama cornerback, who missed three practices, will report Monday to training camp, according to the team.

- Gates runs the right route
CORTLAND, N.Y. – After the first day of training camp, Rex Ryan declared wide receiver Clyde Gates the MVP of the Jets offense. Caught after practice, Gates smiled slowly and said a lot of people played well.
Yes, but MVP?
“It’s just one day,” Gates said.
Now starting his second season with the Jets, the publicly soft-spoken, privately funny Gates has filled a void as several of the team’s free-agent receivers and running backs sit during team drills at training camp.

- What we learned on Day 4
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Observations from the press box:
1. Clock is ticking: QB Geno Smith made a good point Sunday. Working with the starters for the first time, he mentioned how beneficial it was to face the No. 1 defense. It’s a tremendous learning experience for a rookie, facing a defense to changes fronts and disguises coverages. The downside: There won’t be too many more opportunities. If the Jets name the starter after the second preseason game, the ideal timetable, it leaves only 12 practices (counting the Green & White scrimmage).

- Rex Report: Bring the rain
CORTLAND, N.Y. — The skies opened in Cortland and, before a lightning warning cleared the field, the scene was reminiscent of a 2010 goal-line stand in a downpour that was chronicled in HBO’s “Hard Knocks.”
“If you don’t have lightening, we’d have gone right at it,” New York Jets coach Rex Ryan said Sunday. “But that was about as good as it gets because you’re doing goal line, a goal-line scrimmage, and that was fantastic.”
That was the day in 2010 when former quarterback Joe Namath noticed that Mark Sanchez bobbled the wet ball in the rain a few times.
- Clyde Gates Camp Update
Clyde Gates started camp off by making the most of his early opportunities. Rex Ryan said that Clyde Gates was the MVP of camp. Strong words for a young receiver fighting to make the roster under a new offensive coordinator. Gates had a history in Miami with Tony Sparano. But his safety net (Sparano) is [...]
- Practice report: Geno shows big arm
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Finally, it looked and sounded like training camp, as the Jets practiced for the first time in pads. Observations:
GENO’S TURN: As per the quarterback rotation, rookie Geno Smith led the first-team offense in an abbreviated afternoon practice. For now, the plan is to have Smith and Mark Sanchez alternate every third practice. So far, they’ve responded well to the competition. Three days, no lousy practices. In fact, they’ve yet to throw an interception in team drills.

So they resumed practice at 3:30pm and here is a brief recap of the action. Quarterback It is so hard to get a [...]
