Jets 1st-rounder Dee Milliner says shoulder feels 'great' after getting on field for 1st time

New York Jets first-round draft pick Dee Milliner participated in some drills as he joined his teammates on the practice field for the first time in training camp.

Milliner signed a four-year deal with the Jets after a brief holdout, and says his surgically repaired right shoulder felt "great." He has not fully practiced since being drafted by New York in April after having his shoulder operated on in March.

The former Alabama star did some positional and one-on-one drills Wednesday, but did not participate in 11-on-11 team drills. Milliner is unsure when he'll be able to fully practice, but says he had "no problems" with his shoulder.

Milliner is expected to compete with Kyle Wilson for the starting spot opposite Antonio Cromartie, vacated when the Jets traded Darrelle Revis.
