Isaiah Wilson claims he’s “done with football as a Titan”

USA TODAY Sports

Titans General Manager Jon Robinson said last week Isaiah Wilson has to “make a determination” if he wants to play.

The first-round draft choice apparently made a decision, if only briefly, tweeting, “Im done with football as a Titan… No further comments.”

Not surprisingly, the tweet didn’t have a long shelf life. It was deleted a few minutes later, no doubt after someone with Wilson’s best interest in mind offered sound advice.

Still, it adds another layer to Wilson’s future.

He played only four snaps during a lost rookie season that included a DUI arrest, a suspension for violating team rules, two stints on the COVID-19 reserve list and a season-ending move to the non-football illness list to work on personal issues.

Robinson revealed last week he had not spoken to Wilson since the offensive tackle’s placement on the NFI list.

  1. And this just goes to show how overrated valuing a 1st round pick is. These guys are just as likely to bust as the later round guys are. The number of your pick does not determine your career. What a sad way to waste his talents.

  2. When you’re drafting early, you have to get guys that check every box. The character box is as important as any. It’s like a hitter going into the batter’s box determined to hit a home run. Sometimes you swing and miss at a bad pitch. Just make contact every time and the hits will fall in. Some will even go over the fence. It can be tempting, but you have to be disciplined and learn to lay off the bad pitches.

  3. 2019: Lewan and Conklin
    2020: Lewan for a bit and then nothing.

    Look no further for Tennessee’s struggles.

    Miami needs to run the card in for Sewell and annoyingly dominant their division.

  4. He’s probably done in the NFL too. Has someone told him what it’s like to work like a dog and be lucky to earn $50k like a normal person? If not they better before he talks himself out of the NFL.

  5. And, at this point, I’m done with millionaire athletes whining and crying about what team they’re on.

  6. What a idiot. This guy will never be taken seriously by another team, and after having a year off because he is a little kid amongst serious millionaires, he probably isn’t very good anymore

  7. Since his career is only 4 snaps, I’m not sure you can say it’s exactly started, nevermind as a Titan. What a tool.

  8. You’re in the NFL, time to grow up young man. Stop being a 6 foot 5 cupcake and take some responsibility.

  9. The Titans clearly blew it when they interviewed this young man. He clearly doesn’t get it. He needs a solid mentor and is going to have to grow up. Hope he gets it together.

  10. Can we go ahead and call him a bust now? He’s clearly not right in the head but this is something that should have been picked up in due diligence before he was drafted. I suspect there will be more cases like this in the upcoming draft class with face to face evaluations basically being off the table.

  11. This guy is talking like he has some type of leverage. I don’t think he realizes how close he is to never playing in the NFL again.

  12. He should have stopped with I’m done with football . This guy has demonstrated the decision making capabilities of a 14 yr old , not something that seems likely to change .

  13. I still am amazed when some of these players are highly drafted and there are no red flags about character that show up before the draft. With all of the social media and the abilities of teams to dig into player’s backgrounds in college (even high school) it seems rare that they get side-swiped by a player with questionable character.

    I honestly cannot recall anything about Wilson leading up to the draft that was raised as a concern. He was mentioned right there amongst the other elite-talent OTs near the top of the draft. Actually, Mekhi Becton was the one I thought was the biggest risk with his seemingly raw talent and needing development time. He turned out to be pretty good so go figure.

  14. Titans had a sneaky horrible draft in 2020, it has to be the worst in the league. Even the Round 2 CB from LSU didn’t help that D at all. Look for them to struggle in 2022, if not sooner.

    Yes, 1st rd picks under a Rookie Cap are overrated.

    No sir, GB holds that distinction

  17. “I’m angry that the coach called me out spot on about my conduct, so I’m going to flame my career on Twitter.” Sounds about right. Could be a total Marinovich-type black hole or, you never know, could turn into a Waller-type reclamation at some point. Only the Almighty knows which path he has in store at this point, but the kid is at at least ONE inflection point in his life right now. All is not lost. Yet.

    His contract is $11+ mil guaranteed. He won’t have to work like a dog.

  19. “His contract is $11+ mil guaranteed. He won’t have to work like a dog.”

    pretty sure the Titans can recover most of that money, that’s a four year guarantee (1st rd pick). His tweet alone would be pretty convincing evidence that he does not intend to honor his contract
