Isaiah Wilson Tweets He’s Done With Titans, Then Deletes It

Videos by OutKick

When the Tennessee Titans drafted Isaiah Wilson with the No. 29 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, they were hoping he would be a staple on the offensive line for the next decade-plus. So far, they’ve been wrong.

The mammoth offensive tackle out of Georgia has struggled during his time in Nashville. He landed on the COVID-19 reserve list twice, got arrested for a DUI, made some immature posts on social media and caused some other off the field issues, so Wilson has been a constant headache.

The latest saga came on Monday night.

Wilson tweeted out saying he was done with the Titans, but then quickly deleted it. It was too late though. Receipts are almost immediate, and NFL Update snagged a screen grab before it could be erased.

“Im done with football as a Titan… No further comments,” Wilson tweeted.

At this point, it’s safe to assume Wilson’s time as a Titan could be nearing an end. If not by his choice, it will be a decision that comes from Jon Robinson and/or Mike Vrabel. Robinson said just last week that Wilson was on thin ice.

“We’ve tried to exhaust a lot of resources trying to help (Wilson),” Robinson said, via the Tennessean. “He’s going to have to make a determination if he wants to do everything necessary to play pro football, and that’s going to be on him. I know what the expectation level is here, and it’s no different than for any other player on the football team.

“We have a standard that we want players to prepare, perform at professionally and as people. There’s a lot of work to be done there.”

Lucky for Tennessee, Taylor Lewan is expected to be back at some point in 2021 after tearing his ACL in mid-October. Once he’s back, the team will more than likely rely on Dennis Kelly and him at offensive tackle.

Either way, what a waste of a premium draft pick. This has to be a frustrating situation for Titans fans.

  1. Whoever did his draft evaluation obviously didn’t talk to enough people, didn’t ask enough hard questions about his personal character, or simply doesn’t understand what character “is” to evaluate it. You don’t “suddenly” turn into Dennis Rodman’s protege like this. I promise he had a background of questionable character if you looked in the right places, but folks lied to protected him and evaluators weren’t smart enough to press harder. You can’t turn character on/off like a switch. I’d fire the evaluators who signed off on Wilson. The Titans have a history of drafting fruitcakes early too. Pac-Man Jones, Kenny Britt, Taylor Lewan, Isaiah Wilson. Everyone a first rounder, and everyone with problems with the law. You can’t draft mental cases in the first round.
