Even though the 2015 NFL season is young, New York Jets have still been very busy in the opening couple of weeks.

The Jets traded for star receiver Brandon Marshall from Chicago Bears, and then they also re-signed former starting cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie.

These moves have led to many reports about the future of the Jets starting cornerback from last year, Dee Milliner, and now the speculation regarding his future has reached fever pitch after today's revelation.

According to reports from, the New York Jets have received several offers for Dee Milliner, and it would not be a surprise to see the Jets entertain those offers, considering the fact that Milliner is now arguably the team's fourth choice corner - with Buster Skrine also adding considerable depth for the Jets in the position.

"The New York Jets added a super trio of cornerbacks this offseason in Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie and Buster Skrine, thrusting the future of former first-round pick Dee Milliner into question," reported on Wednesday.

"After beginning last season atop Gang Green's depth chart -- and waywardly making a "best NFL corner" boast -- Milliner currently sits in position to battle for the No. 4 gig after he returns from an Achilles tendon tear."

"The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reports that teams have inquired about Milliner's availability in trade talks, but the Jets aren't willing to ship the 23-year-old out of town. At least not for cheap, yet."

Though the Jets will obviously listen to offers for Milliner, it would maybe be surprising to see him leave the Jets, with a strong offer being the only thing likely to make New York give up on him.

New Jets coach Todd Bowles is likely to give even his fourth-best corner a good run next season. with Bowles running a defense last season in Arizona that employed six defensive backs for a large chunk of plays that he drew up.

It remains to be seen whether or not Milliner leaves New York via a trade, but what do Jets fans think their team should do with the young cornerback? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
