Dolphins waive OL Isaiah Wilson days after trade
Just three days after trading for offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson, the Miami Dolphins waived the former first-round pick on Saturday.
Wilson, 22, was the 29th overall pick by the Tennessee Titans in the 2020 NFL Draft, but tweeted last month that he was “done” with the organization. The Titans then traded Wilson to the Dolphins as part of a swap of seventh-round draft choices, Miami’s this year for Tennessee’s in 2022.
But his arrival in Miami was anything but smooth, with Wilson reportedly missing workouts he had promised to attend and showing up late for his physical and onboarding process with the team.
Wilson’s 2020 season was eventful, but the majority of the action took place almost exclusively off the field. That included two incidents involving law enforcement and two stints on the league’s reserve/COVID-19 list.
On the field, he played only four snaps. The former Georgia Bulldogs blocker lasted only one season under a four-year, $11.6 million contract he signed in August.
In December, the Titans placed him on their non-football injury list, with general manager Jon Robinson saying Wilson was “going to have to make a determination if he wants to do everything necessary to play pro football.”
In late February, Wilson tweeted that he was “done with football as a Titan… No further comments.” The tweet later was deleted.
