Former UGA star Isaiah Wilson may be the wildest story of last year’s NFL Draft.
Some thought the towering offensive lineman may have left college too early, but Wilson had a meteoric rise with NFL scouts and was selected at the end of the first round by Tennessee Titans.
However, things went off a cliff from there: Wilson only played a total of four snaps as a rookie after a series of off-the-field incidents.
On Tuesday, Titans general manager Jon Robinson told reporters that he hasn’t spoken to Wilson since the team placed him on the NFI (non-football illness) list in December:
“He’s going to have to make a determination on whether he wants to do what it takes to play pro football — that will be on him.”
Wilson signed a four-year rookie contract worth $11.5 million, including a signing bonus of nearly $6 million. The start of his NFL career has obviously been a huge disappointment for the Titans.
“We did a lot of work on him leading up to the draft,” Robinson said. “The player that was here in the fall was not the player we evaluated.”
