Milne had two receptions for 16 yards on four targets during Washington’s 22-13 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 1 of the NFL preseason.
“He’s progressed very well. He really has,” Rivera added. “You see his natural route running ability showing on certain situations, circumstances. The thing is he caught a lot of balls in college, so you know he came here prepared. He’s taking coaching very well. You see him coming out of his own element, starting to create who he is, his own persona.”
