It’s been a few months since the viral rumor about Zach Wilson, but it’s still clearly a huge story.
During the offseason, things got crazy when social media found out that Zach Wilson’s ex-girlfriend was dating his college roommate, Washington Commanders wide receiver Dax Milne. After being blasted online, she seemingly accused the Jets quarterback of cheating on her with his mom’s best friend.
Abbey Gile fired back when a commenter accused her of being a “homie hopper” by dating her longtime ex’s one-time bestie. In a since-deleted comment, she said that Wilson “was sleeping with his mom’s best friend … that’s the real homie hopper,” she wrote with two laughing emojis.
Wilson is expected to make his first start of the season against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. Ahead of this matchup, Steelers defensive end Chris Wormley brought light back to the situation.
During the most recent episode of his podcast, The Sick Podcast: The Chris Wormley & Friends Show, the backup defensive lineman went viral with his statement.
“I think Zach Wilson has a lot of talent, second-year guy, you know he likes to get after the cougars it seems like in his free time.”
Wilson missed the Jets’ first three games of the 2022 campaign with a preseason meniscus tear. The team managed a 2-1 record in the process.
In 13 starts as a rookie, Wilson passed for 2,334 yards and 9 TDs while rushing for 185 yards and 4 TDs.
