The Miami Dolphins reportedly released offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson on Saturday — three days after acquiring the troubled former first-round pick in a trade with Tennessee.
Wilson showed up hours late for his Dolphins physical and orientation, and skipped two optional workouts he had committed to attending, according to the Miami Herald.
The 22-year-old Brooklyn native refused Miami’s efforts to get his life back on track, the report said.
WIlson appeared in just one game with the Titans last season in what was a tumultuous rookie year for the 29th pick in the 2020 draft.
In the middle of training camp in August, Wilson received a trespass warning after attempting to evade Tennessee State campus police following an off-campus party that had been broken up.
One month later he was charged with DUI after being spotted doing donuts in a Nashville intersection before crashing into a concrete wall.
The former Georgia star was suspended by the Titans for violating team rules in December. He then was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list and went months without speaking with the organization.
“He’s going to have to make a determination on whether he wants to do what it takes to play pro football,” Titans GM Jon Robinson said in February.
Days later, Wilson said on social media that he was done playing football for the Titans, but then deleted the post minutes later.
The Titans agreed to trade Wilson and a seventh-round pick to the Dolphins for a seventh-round pick in a deal that became official when the new league year began March 17.
On Friday, social media videos showed Wilson dancing shirtless on top of a car in an undisclosed location.
Wilson, who did not appear to have character concerns coming out of college, had signed a four-year, $11 million rookie contract with the Titans, but the team later voided all of his salary guarantees due to his off-field issues, according to the Miami Herald.
In addition to his transgressions, Wilson was twice placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list — which was designated for players who tested positive for the virus or was found to have been exposed to the illness.
