OT Isaiah Wilson tweets he’s ‘done’ with Titans
Offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson’s brief tenure with the Tennessee Titans might be ending.
The 2020 first-round pick, the 29th overall selection, tweeted Monday, “Im (sic) done with football as a Titan… No further comments.”
The tweet was subsequently deleted.
Wilson’s playing time as a rookie consisted of four plays on Nov. 29 against the Indianapolis Colts, three on offense and one on special teams.
Wilson, 22, ran into trouble last year beginning in training camp. He got a trespass warning from police after he allegedly pondered jumping from a second-story balcony during a party near Tennessee State University on Aug. 15. He subsequently had two stays on the NFL’s reserve/COVID-19 list.
On Sept. 11, he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after his car allegedly hit a concrete wall.
The Titans suspended Wilson for the Dec. 6 game against the Cleveland Browns for an unspecified violation of team rules. For the remainder of the season, Wilson was on the reserve/non-football illness list due to what the team termed personal issues.
Last week, Tennessee general manager Jon Robinson said of Wilson, “He’s going to have to make a determination if he wants to do everything necessary to play pro football, and that’s going to be on him. … We have a certain standard that we want players to prepare and perform at professionally and as people. A lot of work to be done there.”
Should the team release Wilson from the remainder of his four-season, $11.36 million contract, it would face a dead cap charge of $5.38 million, according to Spotrac.com.
