MIAMI (AP) – Tackling Isaiah Wilson, a first-round pick for the Tennessee Titans that turned out to be a fiasco, lasted just two weeks with the Miami Dolphins.
Miami released Wilson on Saturday after he was late for his physical and team meetings and failed to show up for his scheduled workouts, said a person with knowledge of the Dolphins’ decision. .
The person gave the reasons for Wilson’s discharge on condition of a nonymity because the Dolphins had no comment beyond the press release. The player’s agent did not respond to a request for comment.
Miami acquired Wilson from Tennessee on March 8 in a trade that also involved a trade of seventh-round picks.
Wilson was the 29th pick in the 2020 draft and his only season with Tennessee was filled with instability on and off the court. The Titans put the player on the injury / illness reserve list in December to deal with what general manager Jon Robinson called personal problems.
