Former Alabama cornerback and the New York Jets' first-round draft pick Dee Milliner Sunday night agreed to terms on a 4-year, $12.661 million deal with the team.

Milliner, sidelined all offseason following shoulder surgery, is set to join the Jets at training camp today, and he will be competing for the starting spot left vacant when the team traded away All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Stanhope Elmore High product was drafted ninth overall by the Jets in April. According to spotrac.com, Miliner's contract includes $9.748 million in guaranteed money and a $7.588 million signing bonus.

Tennessee Titans offensive lineman Chance Warmack, who was selected one spot behind his former Crimson Tide teammate at 10th overall, had been the last first-round draft pick to remain unsigned until this afternoon.

The Titans announced that Warmack had agreed to a deal with the former All-American and the originator of "Warmacking" sent out a tweet saying, "Time to get to work! #Blessed."

Other former Alabama players who have already signed rookie NFL contracts include offensive lineman D.J. Fluker (San Diego Chargers), offensive lineman Barrett Jones (St. Louis Rams), running back Eddie Lacy (Green Bay Packers), linebacker Nico Johnson (Kansas City Chiefs), defensive lineman Jesse Williams (Seattle Seahawks), defensive lineman Quinton Dial (San Francisco 49ers) and tight end Michael Williams (Detroit Lions).
