Report: Titans shopping Isaiah Wilson, open to trading him

USA TODAY Sports

Last week, Titans General Manager Jon Robinson said 2020 first-round pick Isaiah Wilson must “make a determination” if he wants to play pro football.

Then on Monday, Wilson posted a since-deleted tweet saying he was done playing for the Titans and would not have further comment.

Now on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports — unsurprisingly — the Titans have shopped Wilson and are open to dealing him. Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle also reports Tennessee doesn’t “necessarily expect a lot in return” for Wilson, with a late-round pick likely if anything develops.

Wilson played only four snaps as a rookie after the Titans made him the No. 29th overall pick last April. Wilson’s first season included a DUI arrest, a suspension for violating team rules, a pair of stints on the reserve/COVID-19 list, and placement on the non-football illness list to work on personal issues.

Robinson said last week that he had not spoken to Wilson since the lineman was placed on the NFI list. But at this point, it’s clear he’s been talking to other teams about the lineman. Tennessee and Wilson appear headed for an inevitable split.

  1. Patriots have a couple of former Dawgs on the 0-line, and an obvious connection to Robinson. Pull the trigger, Bill.

  2. More than a few teams should ask about this kid. He is still only 22. Not enough good tackles in the league, if he was a running back or receiver with these issues then this wouldn’t be a conversation.

  3. You can find out a lot about a guy’s motivation when you give them a fully guaranteed (almost) contract–like Wilson has. Why should Wilson care whether he plays or not since he gets paid no matter what?

    I bet the Titans are willing to just give him away just to get out under that contract. They’ll probably take a few Gatorade towels in return. Some team will probably take a chance but don’t be surprised if he doesn’t do anything until 2023–his contract year….that’s provided he doesn’t wear out his welcome first. This guy could be out of the league before his contract is up.

  4. I’d offer a conditional 7th. If he doesn’t see the field with his new team or doesn’t play X amount of games or snaps, it’s a 7th. If he plays X amount, it escalates to a 6th, to a 5th, etc. I doubt anyone gives up anything more than a 6th rounder for him.

    Though, the bulk of his contract would be from the signing bonus, which the Titans paid when they signed his rookie deal. So he could be a really cheap depth OL who can develop for 3 more years at a super low financial cost.

  5. He will be a Jet or Jag.

    Both teams have extra late picks in addition to their extra 1sts. Both teams desperate for talent.

  6. Early 20’s, new money, drinking and drag racing not condoned but understood. He just needs to mature then he will settle in somewhere with a fresh start and be a good football player.

  7. Interest state of affairs in the NFL now. I guess player with no track record now feel like they can just dictate their wishes on teams. Even if you have absolutely no reason you should or could.

  8. This dude actually tweeted he was “done playing for the Titans.” Hey bruh, when was it that you actually played? You talking about those 4 snaps? LOL!

  9. Let’s not get too carried away with his performance on those 4 snaps. Three of them were in kneel-down formation. I guess it is true that no one got sacked on those plays.
