Titans coach Mike Vrabel supports OL Isaiah Wilson in spite of recent incidents
Since he was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in Round 1 of the 2020 NFL Draft, former Georgia OL Isaiah Wilson hasn’t been able to stay out of trouble off the field.
On Tuesday, Titans coach Mike Vrabel stood by his player, saying he believes Wilson is a good person despite his recent mistakes (via 247Sports):
“Yeah I think that we’re comfortable in the person that we brought in here,” Vrabel said. “And mistakes — again, we’ve been through this — me, personally, obviously. Kids being in college, coaching in college — there’s good people who make mistakes and there’s bad people, and I don’t think Isaiah’s a bad person.
“I do think that part of what we do as coaches is to be able to get these guys to help us and help the team win. But it’s also about helping them off the field and their health and growth and maturity and the men that they become.
“Certainly, we’re not — we don’t condone that type of behavior, whatsoever. It’s unacceptable, but as long as there’s an honest effort to improve, we’re going to put forth that effort as a coaching staff and organization to help any player we have, with any issues that they have.”
Wilson did not play in the Titans’ season-opening win over the Denver Broncos on Monday night. We’ll see if he can work his way back into the team’s good graces moving forward.
