The Tennessee Titans have agree to terms with their first round pick Isaiah Wilson this afternoon. Wilson was taken with the 29th overall selection and is expected to compete for the right tackle job this season with Dennis Kelly after the team let Jack Conklin walk in free agency.
Here’s a look at Wilson signing the deal.
Without a preseason to find his footing, the re-signing of Dennis Kelly becomes that much more important. The team won’t have to force anything in the opening weeks of the season and can ease Wilson into the mix when he becomes ready.
Wilson stands in at 6-6, 350 pounds. He was named to the SEC’s second team after his performance last season for the Georgia Bulldogs, just one season removed from being named a Freshman All-American in 2018.
Wilson was the final first round draft pick to sign his rookie contract. Additionally, the team removed him from the COVID-19 list, clearing the way for Wilson to join the team.
As for the terms, Ian Rapoport reports that the deal is worth $11.57 million spanning over four years. Wilson will receive a signing bonus of nearly six million.
