Offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson may be the Tennessee Titans’ worst draft pick ever. And if not the absolute worst … well, he’s way up there. At least, that seems to be the opinion of some after the Miami Dolphins waived the offensive tackle, just three days after acquiring him in a trade.
Per the Miami Herald, Wilson rejected the Dolphins’ attempts to help him “get his life on track” and instead continued “behavior that caused the Tennessee Titans to give up on him less than a year after drafting him in the first round.”
The Herald added that Wilson showed up late for his first physical with the Dolphins, as well as his first orientation. He then “skipped two optional workouts that he had committed to attend,” the Herald reported, citing a source.
It didn’t get any better from there for the No. 29 overall draft pick in 2020.
“On Friday, a series of videos were posted on Wilson’s Instagram account of what appeared to be Wilson inhaling a vape and dancing shirtless on a car,” the Herald reported, “but the Dolphins would have cut him even if those had not appeared, the source added.”
While with the Titans, Wilson was arrested on DUI charges and, in a separate incident, attempted to jump off a second-story balcony to evade arrest. He instead received a trespassing warning.
He played appeared for just three snaps in Tennessee.
The Titans will still own the Dolphins’ seventh-round pick in the upcoming draft, and the Dolphins will indeed the Titans’ seventh-round pick in 2022, as part of the Wilson trade.
Let’s just hope he can pull it together for his own sake.
