Titans Shopping T Isaiah Wilson

Isaiah Wilson‘s rookie-year no-show preceded Jon Robinson issuing an ultimatum of sorts. Shortly after the GM’s comments about the 2020 first-round pick, the Titans appear prepared to cut bait.

The Titans are shopping the once-sought-after tackle prospect, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports (on Twitter). Three years remain on Wilson’s rookie contract. However, nothing went right for Wilson last season. He may already be on thin ice with his initial NFL team.

He is going to have to make a determination on if he wants to do everything necessary to play pro football,” Robinson said last week, admitting he has not spoken with the team’s would-be Jack Conklin right tackle heir apparent since placing him on the NFI list late last season. Wilson’s trade value certainly has plummeted, to the point the Titans may have to waive him and eat nearly $10MM in dead money. In a since-deleted tweet, the embattled blocker declared he was “done with football.”

One of two Georgia tackles to be chosen in the 2020 first round, along with the Giants’ Andrew Thomas, Wilson saw his NFL career careen off course quickly. He was issued a trespass warning for attending a party at Tennessee State University last summer. That preceded a September DUI arrest. The Titans suspended Wilson in December and ended his season by placing him on the reserve/NFI list days later. The latter move led to Wilson being docked $180K in salary, per NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport (video link). Wilson played four snaps as a rookie, dressing for only one game.

The Titans did not pick up Conklin’s fifth-year option in 2019 and let the high-end right tackle defect to the Browns in free agency last year. They used former swingman Dennis Kelly as their starting right tackle last season. Kelly, 31, is signed through the 2022 season.

    it could be a nice pickup for the Eagles you know for a seventh round pick this upcoming draft or a conditional 6th in the 2022 draft. I know you flaked out in his rookie season this year, but the guy has talent it was the first round pick this year some team is going to buy low on him and it could be a very big pickup if he gets his act straight

    Wouldn’t offer the money to fly him up to a facility. Dude doesn’t want to play. Send him retirement papers.

    So what’s his realistic worth? Josh Rosen was traded for a second rounder the year after being drafted in the first round.
    Obvious differences, the position (qb vs tackle) and the overall attitude and off field issues.

    I would maybe say a high 5th round pick or a low 4th

      I actually wonder why anybody would give anything in trade. It seems really obvious TN is going to cut him…

    Don’t know what’s going on in this kids head hopefully he can fix it or get the help he needs he would be a great pick up for a mid-round pick with different levels of conditions on the players work/attitude he’d need to go to a team with a Great group of veteran leadership he was a first round pick for a reason maybe a team like Seahawks Pats Raiders and Chiefs

    Well, if they were willing to take a flyer on Haskins, then I feel like PIT should be interested in Wilson as well, given they will be losing some significant T pieces, both starting & depth.

    If they don’t come out of Day 2 with a tackle, I’d flip a 5th for a guy with Wilson’s potential. Believe his cap hit post trade would only be $1M or so, which after displacement is a negligible cap increase.
