NFL coaches are always disappointed when a key player isn't at training camp on time, particularly when the player is their first-round draft pick.

In the case of the New York Jets and rookie cornerback Dee Milliner, the ninth overall pick who hasn't agreed to terms yet, the AFC East franchise sorely needs him after trading cornerback Darrelle Revis.

So, Ryan is a bit miffed that Milliner isn't at camp yet since he's slated to start opposite Antonio Cromartie.

"I'm just a little disappointed he's not here," Ryan told reporters. "I'll coach the guys that are here."

Milliner might need to be eased in once his contract is negotiated due to his shoulder surgery he underwent prior to the NFL draft.
