Change of scenery? Tennessee Titans reportedly listening to offers for former Georgia first-round pick
Isaiah Wilson has had a tumultuous start to his NFL career, and Wilson’s career may have a new chapter soon.
Wilson, a former offensive lineman at Georgia, was drafted No. 29 overall by the Tennessee Titans in last year’s NFL Draft. Wilson had a series of incidents last year, and about three months ago was suspended for a game against the Cleveland Browns for violating team rules.
Now comes this news from NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, who reported 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,” he noted.
In September, Wilson was arrested and charged with drunken driving after he was spotted doing “donuts” in an intersection before crashing into a concrete wall, the Associated Press reported. The offensive lineman also said he had two margaritas before driving. He struggled with the field sobriety tests before registering 0.107 on the final breath analyzer test. The legal blood alcohol limit in Tennessee is 0.08. Wilson also reportedly told the officer he was having issues with a back tire, which caused the crash.
In August, Tennessee State University police responded to the smell of marijuana at an off-campus apartment on Aug. 15 and wrote that Wilson went to the second-floor balcony where he appeared to briefly consider jumping.
At Georgia, Wilson was a key figure on the offensive line for multiple seasons. He started all 14 games of the 2018 season at right tackle and then started 10 games for the 12-2 Bulldogs in 2019 and was voted to the AP All-SEC Second Team.
