Titans Suspend T Isaiah Wilson

One week after seeing his first NFL action, Isaiah Wilson ran into more trouble in a turbulent rookie season. The Titans are suspending the first-round tackle for Sunday’s game against the Browns, Field Yates of ESPN.com tweets.

Wilson will be moved to Tennessee’s reserve/suspended list for violating team rules, according to NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero (on Twitter).

Drafted to be Jack Conklin‘s heir apparent at right tackle, the Georgia product has played just three offensive snaps this season. His 2020 off-field headlines have easily surpassed anything football-related. Wilson was arrested for DUI in September, received a trespass warning in August for attending a party at Tennessee State and twice landed on the Titans’ reserve/COVID-19 list.

Wilson signed a four-year, $11.6MM rookie deal with the Titans. All of it — for now — is fully guaranteed. But excepting a severe injury, Wilson’s rookie year has gone about as badly as possible through seven-plus months as a Titan.

        PapiElfsATool is not me. He had some issue with me a couple months ago which is why he had that name.

          Big nod to the folks that run this place for keeping people with ignorant despicable opinions off the boards.

          Also, thanks to everyone that stepped up and put that punk in his place. It’s a shame we have some scum like that in our society, but with continued working together to ALWAYS confront racism head on, hopefully the generations after us will face less and less of it. And our family members, friends, coworkers, neighbors and fellow citizens that are different than us will see and know that we see them no differently than those that share our same background.

          Yeah don’t lump PapiElf in with that guy. Anyone miffed enough at an online commentor to dedicate an entire online presence to demeaning him likely doesn’t much worth listening to anyway.

    He’s on a path to be out of football completely if he doesn’t grow up and listen to his coaches and elders. I wonder if he had similar problems at Georgia? If he may spell continuing problems for the Titans.

      I disagree. How many 1st-2nd rounders are given multiple chances? Heck Josh Cribbs is back in the league.

      If he did have similar problems at Georgia, then the Titans scouts, GM, and coaches failed miserably.

    Huge swing and a miss on this guy. J-Rob has hit on a lot of them, but not this goofball.

    • So if I’m reading your idiotic comment correctly, nearly 50% of the country is unemployable? How ignorant. And by the way, this is a football website, not a political one.

    This is what happens when the GM listens too much to the Head Coach. Wilson was a Vrabel pick. Vrabel is a decent coach but is about as good at talent recognition and requisition as Bill O’Brien was. Stephen Gostkowski and other ex-Pats are further examples…

      The coach always guys who fit his scheme, but GMs do have to have feedback on what the team needs to fit what the coach wants to do. The door is not shut on Wilson yet, but the Titans certainly seem to have their hands full at the moment. Here’s to hoping Wilson matures, for both his and their sakes.

        Wilson is a few steps away from making Purple drank in his bathtub.

        GM and Head of Player Development should be the guys picking the players. Coaches obviously need to provide insight on where they stand talent wise, who is a current problem for which position they need upgrading most. The coach should be able to provide a hierarchy of needs based on urgency.

        Wilson was projected as a 2nd day pick but, taking him at the end of the 1st isn’t terrible bc if he does pan out you have that 5th yr. 5 tackles went ahead of him, so there was a run. Hindsight is 2020, but next tackle came off at #58 and the next was in the 3rd. So they could have waited. Both dudes drafted after have played 8 games.
