Dolphins to acquire Titans against Isaiah Wilson
Titans general manager Jon Robinson recently issued some sort of ultimatum to Wilson, but it soon became known that the Titans were shopping the disappointing blocker. The Dolphins, who have already drafted a first-round tackle in 2020, will acquire another first-round tackle in this class.
Dolphins and Titans to trade picks in unspecified late round to close deal, ESPN.com’s Cameron Wolfe tweets. Considering the price the Titans paid to land Wilson – the 29th pick last year – this marks a big discount for the Dolphins, who will also land Wilson at a lower rate. The Titans will incur over $ 9 million in dead money trading Wilson after his rookie year. He remains signed until 2023. The Dolphins were bred on Wilson before the 2020 Draft, by Wolfe (on Twitter).
Wilson only played four snaps as a rookie, running into multi-faceted issues. He received a trespass warning for attending a party at Tennessee State University last summer. This preceded an arrest for impaired driving in September. The Titans suspended Wilson in December and ended his season by placing him on the reserve / NFI roster days later. Wilson displayed a desire to quit football, in a tweet deleted from, earlier this year. The Dolphins, who have selected Austin jackson with the third of their three picks in the first round of 2020, will give Wilson a second chance.
The former Georgia tackle’s stock has certainly nosedived from where it was at this point last year. The Titans chose him with the hope that he would succeed Jack conklin on the right tackle. Old swing tackle Dennis kelly ended up starting there instead. Kelly is under contract until 2022.
