The New York Jets agreed to a contract with their top draft pick Dee Milliner, the final member of the team’s draft class who had yet to sign.

Milliner, a cornerback selected with the ninth pick of the National Football League draft in April, will join the Jets today on their fourth day of full-squad training camp at the State University of New York College at Cortland, the team said on its website.

Contract terms weren’t disclosed. The former University of Alabama player signed a fully guaranteed four-year, $12.7 million contract, according to ESPN.

Milliner had six interceptions and 136 tackles in three years at Alabama. He’s also had five surgeries, including one on his shoulder in March, and his ability to participate in training camp has yet to be decided, according to ESPN.
