Tennessee Titans suspend former Georgia lineman, first-round pick Isaiah Wilson
Isaiah Wilson is off to a rough start in the NFL.
Wilson, a former star offensive lineman at Georgia, was drafted No. 29 overall by the Tennessee Titans in the spring NFL Draft. But since then Wilson has run into a series of incidents. The latest came on Saturday when Wilson was suspended for the game against Cleveland for violating club rules, the Titans announced.
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. Wilson graded out at 84.6 percent in pass blocks, committed a single penalty and only allowed one sack last season.
