Dee Milliner drops agent after NFL draft fall

Al Bello

Dee Milliner has cut ties with Impact Sports after slipping during the 2013 NFL Draft.

Dee Milliner has parted ways with Impact Sports after falling out of the top five picks of the 2013 NFL Draft, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. Like his soon-to-be New York Jets teammate Geno Smith, who also fired his agents, Milliner apparently was unhappy about his slip in the draft. Milliner's fall was less extreme, however. He still went in the top 10, coming in at No. 9 overall.

Per NFL rules, Milliner will have to wait at least five days before signing with new representation. According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, however, Milliner has already reached an agreement with Pat Dye Jr., who has a history of handling former Alabama players. Dye and his agency, ProFiles Sports, have also represented linebacker Rolando McClain and tight end Colin Peek in the past.

As many expected, Milliner was the first cornerback taken in the NFL Draft. He was named a unanimous All-American selection, and a finalist for the Bronko Nagurski and Jim Thorpe awards after recording 20 pass breakups, two interceptions and a forced fumble for the Crimson Tide last season. He is expected to help fill the void left after Darrelle Revis' trade to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
