Dax Milne was a fairly unfamiliar name for NFL fans until this offseason. The former BYU wide receiver is now a household name, but not for anything he has done on the football field.
The NFL world was taken by storm when Zach Wilson’s ex-girlfriend, Abbey Gile, accused Wilson of sleeping with his mother’s best friend. That information only came about after she started dating his former best friend.
While Gile’s comments are yet to be verified, her new partner seems to have caught some heat as well.
Milne is currently at training camp with the Washington Commanders, and even his own fan base seems to be giving him a hard time about the viral mess.
“Dax Milne just caught a pass along the sideline and some fans yelled, “Mr Steal Your Girl!”
Milne was a wide receiver at BYU and played alongside Wilson from 2018 to 2020.
Following a career year in 2020, Milne decided to make himself available for the NFL Draft. While Wilson was drafted second overall by the New York Jets, the wide receiver’s name was called by the Washington Commanders in the seventh round of the draft with the 258th overall pick.
Signing a four-year rookie deal, the wideout played a small role in the Commanders’ 2021 NFL season.
