CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) -- The New York Jets and first-round draft pick Dee Milliner have agreed to terms on a four-year contract.

The former Alabama cornerback, selected with the ninth overall pick in April, is expected to join the team at training camp Monday. It is uncertain if Milliner will be able to practice immediately because he was sidelined the entire offseason after having shoulder surgery.

Milliner missed the Jets' first three practices of training camp.

He is expected to compete for the starting spot opposite Antonio Cromartie, vacated when New York traded Darrelle Revis to Tampa Bay.

With the signing Sunday night, it leaves Tennessee guard Chance Warmack as the draft's only remaining unsigned first-round pick.
