Titans Place Isaiah Wilson On Reserve/NFI List

Isaiah Wilson‘s turbulent rookie year may be over, and the latest news involving the Titans first-round pick points to the offensive line prospect needing to surmount hurdles to resume his career.

The Titans placed Wilson on their reserve/non-football illness list Wednesday. This came four days after they suspended him for Sunday’s game. Jack Conklin‘s would-be heir apparent at right tackle, Wilson made his NFL debut in Week 12. He played four snaps against the Colts. That might end up being his only action as a rookie.

Currently, (Wilson) is dealing with some personal issues, which will take some time for him to work through,” Titans GM Jon Robinson said. “We will continue to help him and support him, with the hope that he can ultimately re-join the team.”

Since the Titans drafted him, Wilson has been arrested for DUI, received a trespass warning for attending a party at Tennessee State and twice landed on the team’s reserve/COVID-19 list. Former swing man Dennis Kelly has worked as Tennessee’s right tackle starter, and that status does not look to change in the near future. Wilson is under contract through 2023, but the Georgia product’s career can be considered on hold.

    everybody always talks how great the GM of this team is. but look at this horrible off-season. everything he did is crap. Free agency crap. draft picks crap. let’s not extend Corey Davis crap

      Even with a bad off season as you claim they’re still pushing for a playoff spot.

      Your memory must not be very good as well.

      Draft picks? Teams couldn’t conduct the draft process like usual cause of covid. Everyone knew this years draft was a gamble.

      Corey Davis? Dude is a 1st round bust and inconsistent in a run first offense. He has a big game then goes quiet. He’s not a #1 and barely a #2. He’s had two good years and two bad years. Not worth picking up a 5th year option after posting 600 yards in 2019.

      Bad FAs? He signed most of the big name guys to 1 year prove it deals. He didn’t overpay or lock them into a bad contract for 3 4 or 5 years, same with Corey Davis. His 1 year gambles haven’t paid off. Oh well. Least they’re not stuck with Beasley and Clowney for multiple years.

      I’m kind of in the middle regarding Robinson. He did build a team with more upside after the Titans were stuck in the purgatory of mediocrity for a few seasons and deserves credit for inking Tannehill when several analysts had written him off. He’s built a solid offensive line and prior to this year, drafted fairly well (Lewan, Adoree, Simmons, Aj Brown, and Byard are franchise cornerstones)

      On the other hand, I was not a huge fan of this offseason and actually called the Titans out at the beginning of the season for their complacency. They should not have let Conklin go and literally traded Casey away for nothing. Vic Beasley was an obvious overpay, even if it was just one year. Although, I disagree on Corey Davis. He was definitely a prove-it candidate coming into the season and it was worth holding off on the extension in case he continued to underachieve
