One of the 2020 draft’s top tackle prospects, Wilson flamed out of Tennessee fast. After myriad issues limited Wilson to four snaps as a rookie, the Titans traded him to the Dolphins earlier this year. The Dolphins waived Wilson not long after acquiring him, leaving last year’s 29th overall pick out of football 11 months after being drafted.
Wilson’s laundry list of issues since being drafted include two arrests — one for DUI in 2020 and another after he was involved in a high-speed car chase in January — and a trespass warning for attending a party on the Tennessee State campus. Wilson had two stints on the Titans’ reserve/COVID-19 list and ended the season on Tennessee’s NFI list, that coming after a team-imposed suspension. The former Georgia blocker also tweeted about potentially being done with football in February.
This Colts meeting marks Wilson’s first workout since the Dolphins cut him in March. Indianapolis has experienced persistent problems at tackle this year, however.
Eric Fisher made his debut in Week 2 after completing Achilles rehab, but standout right tackle Braden Smith is currently sidelined with foot and thumb injuries. The Colts declared Smith out for the Titans matchup. Indianapolis also lost Sam Tevi for the season with an ACL tear.
