The Titans’ 2020 draft class has been one to forget to this point, starting right at the top. Offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson was the choice for the Titans, with hopes of him developing into the starting right tackle by the end of the 2020 season. Not only did that not happen, but Wilson’s future with the team seems to be in massive jeopardy.
Per Ian Rapoport, the Titans are shopping Wilson, likely just trying to get anything for the second-year product out of Georgia.
The #Titans have shopped first-round tackle Isaiah Wilson, sources say, open to dealing the former Georgia standout. After a rough rookie season that included a suspension and stint on the non-football injury list, a fresh start may benefit all parties.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 25, 2021
Getting any sort of return in a trade seems unlikely at this point, considering Wilson’s tweet from earlier in the week proclaiming that he was “done as a Titan.”
The former 29th overall selection played a grand total of four snaps in his rookie season with the Titans. His time in Nashville has been marked by boneheaded decisions, like attending college parties during the height of a pandemic along with a DUI charge.
Titans GM Jon Robinson said last week that Wilson needed to “make a determination on whether he wants to do what it takes to play pro football.” Wilson signed a four year, $11.6 million contract with the team last summer. The Titans would have $5.3 million in dead cap money if they were to release him.
Wilson’s days in Nashville seem severely limited at this point, and it seems like we’ll have a final answer on the situation soon.
