Earlier this week, Titans GM Jon Robinson put Isaiah Wilson on notice. However, the team does not plan to trade or release the offensive tackle, according to Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com (on Twitter).
The Titans selected Wilson No. 29 overall in last year’s draft and they already have buyer’s remorse. After receiving a DUI and taking two turns on the COVID-19 list, he played just four snaps as a rookie. In Week 13, the Titans suspended him for violating team rules.
“He is going to have to make a determination on if he wants to do everything necessary to play pro football,” Robinson said, adding that he hasn’t spoken with Wilson since placing him on the NFI list.
Wilson, who just celebrated his 22nd birthday, has three years to go on his four-year, $11.6MM rookie deal. If he can get things in order, he could have a promising career ahead of him. Leading up to the draft, many saw Wilson as a potential Top 10 pick. At Georgia, Wilson was a standout. The 6-foot-6, 350-pound lineman earned All-SEC second team honors in 2019 after starting 10 of his 11 games. And, before that, he was named to the Football Writers Association of America Freshman All-America Team.
