"Isaiah Wilson needs help..."


  

          

..This is bigger than football.

DAVIE, Fla. -- The Miami Dolphins waived 2020 first-round offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson on Saturday, just days after acquiring him in a trade with the Tennessee Titans.

Wilson was hours late for his physical and team onboarding process, skipped multiple optional workouts that he agreed to attend on Thursday and Friday and declined support service help that he was offered, all in his first official week with the team, sources said.

Miami was aiming to take a low-risk flier on Wilson, who was acquired with a 2022 seventh-round pick in exchange for a 2021 seventh-round pick on a deal that was agreed to on March 8, but finalized earlier this week. His guarantees were voided due to his suspension with the Titans, so he's owed no money, and the loss to Miami is receiving a seventh-round pick one year later.

Coach Brian Flores has known Wilson, a Brooklyn native who went to the same high school, for years. The team hoped that connection plus others on the team would help give Wilson a second chance to reach his on-field potential and manage his off-the-field troubles after a disastrous year in Tennessee. But just days into his time in Miami, Wilson continued to show what a source called a "concerning track record" that made it clear to the team it was time to move on.

Wilson also posted social media videos of him Friday dancing shirtless on top of a car and smoking a vape, the same day he agreed to do a workout. By then, the Dolphins had already decided to move on as Wilson was not receptive of their plans to help him.

Tennessee signed Wilson, the 29th selection in last April's NFL draft, to a four-year, $11.6 million contract in August. He was considered a top-50 prospect by many draft analysts, and a potential long-term starting right tackle. But Wilson's time with the Titans didn't get off to a good start, prompting the team to move on from him less than a year later.


The right tackle out of the University of Georgia played only four snaps in his rookie season, which culminated in his being placed on the non-football injury list in December. Before that, Wilson found himself on the reserve/COVID-19 list twice -- during training camp and in October.

He also had a couple of run-ins with the law. The first came when Tennessee State police broke up an off-campus party Wilson had attended during training camp. In their report, the police documented that Wilson went to the second-floor balcony, where he appeared to briefly consider jumping. He received a trespass warning.

The second incident occurred when Wilson was arrested and charged with a DUI in September when he lost control of his vehicle and struck a concrete wall.

Titans general manager Jon Robinson addressed Wilson's status during a virtual news conference last month, telling reporters he had not spoken to Wilson since putting him on the non-football injury list and suggesting that Wilson "makes a determination on whether he wants to do what it takes to play pro football."

That’s what he needs right now. He definitely needs counseling and guidance.

He posted a video of himself vaping, and due to his out of control behavior,
he might be hooked on K2. That stuff will destroy your brain, and couple
that with playing football?

He shouldn’t be allowed on a football field anytime soon.
Can only hope for the best.

He's clearly having some problems coping with his responsibilities which, as we know, maybe a sign of a mental health condition.

It's sad to see potential not be realized. He could be living out his dream. Finances aside, the ability to play in the NFL is a fantasy for 99% of the boys who dream of it. He not only had the opportunity but so was so prized that he was a first-round pick. He had a good of a chance as sticking as anyone.

I pray someone gets through to him, to salvage a chance at his opportunity but also give him the structure to thrive as an adult.

I'm hoping this dude doesn't end up dead or in jail at this point. If you can't/don't want to comply with the basics in order to have a gig on a NFL team, how are you gonna get right to show up in an office somewhere? Or some factory/warehouse? I just don't know.

I struggle with remembering what it was like to be that age and, in many cases, not really understand what you could/should be doing. And that's for regular ass folks in seemingly normal situations. I am not sure how we don't have more issues with folks in the sports world with all of the pits you can fall into. But it seems clear that if you come in with big enough issues, you can be out fast.

yeah its crazy, you hear about so many guys working so hard to just get a shot, and to see someone have everything laid out for him by TWO teams and just throw it away. Hopefully he gets the help he needs.

Ex-Tennessee Titans O-lineman Isaiah Wilson charged after high-speed chase in January

Former Tennessee Titans offensive lineman Isaiah Wilson was arrested and charged with multiple offenses after a high-speed car chase in Georgia on Jan. 7.

According to the Barrow County Sheriff's Office incident report, an officer was operating a stationary radar system on University Parkway when he noticed a dark-colored Dodge Charger zoom by him.

The vehicle registered a speed of 123 mph on radar, causing the officer to turn on his sirens and begin the pursuit, the report said. The chase was called off because it reached dangerous speeds as high as 140 mph.

Wilson's car had crashed, and he was eventually arrested by an undercover ICE officer who had witnessed the wreck moments after the chase was called off, the report said. The officer placed Wilson under arrest after approaching the car and seeing him standing in the vehicle with his upper torso extending out of the sunroof.

After being apprehended, Wilson was asked why he fled from the police. According to the report, he said that he had past experiences with law enforcement that scared him and was afraid he'd go to jail. Wilson also stated that there wasn't anything illegal in the vehicle.

A female identified as Grace Barnett was also in the vehicle and was arrested after a metal grinder with 3.4 grams of marijuana was found in the vehicle despite her telling police there were no drugs in their possession. Both Wilson and Barnett were taken to the Barrow County Detention Center. A small bag containing 0.2 grams of acid was found in Barnett's purse during the booking process at the jail, the report said.

Wilson was charged with felony fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer, speeding in a construction zone, reckless driving, reckless conduct, possession of less than 1 ounce of marijuana, and possession and use of drug-related objects.

Tennessee traded Wilson along with a seventh-round pick in the 2021 draft to the Miami Dolphins last week in exchange for a seventh-round pick. The Dolphins waived Wilson on Saturday after the team determined that he was not receptive to its offers to help him.

The Dolphins did have some knowledge of Wilson's January arrest before the trade was finalized, but they weren't aware of the full scope of it at that time, a team source told ESPN's Cameron Wolfe.

The Titans declined to comment on Wilson's arrest in January.

Wilson has had other run-ins with the law since being selected with the 29th pick in the 2020 draft.


The first came when police at Tennessee State broke up an off-campus party Wilson had attended during training camp. In their report, the police documented that Wilson went to the second-floor balcony, where he appeared to briefly consider jumping. He received a trespass warning.

Wilson was arrested and charged with DUI in September when he lost control of his vehicle and struck a concrete wall.

Wilson played only four snaps in his rookie season, which culminated in his being placed on the non-football injury list in December. Before that, Wilson was twice on the reserve/COVID-19 list -- during training camp and in October.

Titans general manager Jon Robinson said during a virtual news conference last month that he had not spoken to Wilson since putting him on the NFI list in December. Robinson suggested that Wilson needs to "make a determination on whether he wants to do what it takes to play pro football."
