The ongoing saga with Tennessee Titans 2020 first-round pick Isaiah Wilson continues, as the team is getting impatient with the offensive tackle and what he’s planning on doing for 2021.
The former Georgia Bulldog was selected with the 29th overall pick in last year’s NFL Draft, but he barely played in his rookie season.
Last week, Titans general manager Jon Robinson said Wilson has to “make a determination” if he wants to keep playing pro football.
If you are keeping track of Wilson’s first year, you remember that he played four snaps, had a DUI arrest, a suspension for violating team rules, a couple of stints on the reserve/COVID-19 list, and placement on the non-football illness (NFI) list to work on personal issues.
Many speculate that there’s no way that he will return to Tennessee in 2021, but with his off the field issues, it seems unlikely that any team is going to give much for him, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Robinson said last week that he had not spoken to Wilson since the lineman was placed on the NFI list.
The Titans will probably have to dump Wilson eventually and cut their losses.
“We did a lot of work on him, leading up to the evaluation process,” Robinson said, via Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com.
“The player that was here in the fall in Nashville was not the player we evaluated.”
