We’re less than a month away from the start of the NFL preseason and the biggest story that everyone’s talking about isn’t the Jimmy Garoppolo saga in San Fran, or the quarterback battle that’s set to take place in Carolina between two of the top three picks from the 2018 draft—Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold.
Heck, it’s not even about the NFL’s pending decision on Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson, who could be hit with a season-long suspension any day now.
Rather, the quarterback that everyone is talking about these days resides in the Big Apple. And he’s drawn all this attention for something that’s not even remotely related to football.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock this past weekend, you’ve probably heard the rumors that Zach Wilson apparently cheated on his now-ex-girlfriend with none other than his mom’s best friend. The New York Jets quarterback was called out for his cheating ways by his ex Abbey Gile on Instagram, after she received plenty of backlash for moving on from Wilson with his former best friend and roommate from college, Washington Commanders wide receiver Dax Milne.
The reaction to Wilson’s scandalous actions has been mixed. Some have called him out, but most seem to be happy to see the 2021 second overall pick show some “dawg” in him.
Some have even gone back through Wilson’s old tweets, where they discovered one tweet in particular that seems fitting for the situation that the former BYU Cougar finds himself in at the moment.
Wilson’s BYU days may be over, but he’ll always be a cougar lover.
All I know is his Jets teammates may want to keep their mothers away during Family Day at MetLife.
