The Miami Dolphins made a big move to trade with the Tennessee Titans to bring offensive lineman Isaiah Wilson to the team, it didn’t work out.
The trade for Wilson was easy for Miami. They swapped 7th round draft picks for the former first-round pick of the Titans from only a year ago. That should tell you enough about the young man’s issues.
Over the weekend, a series of videos recorded by the offensive lineman surfaced with him dancing on the top of a car, rapping in a vehicle while smoking a vape, and as some on social media have pointed out, drinking what is called a sizzurp. A drink that contains oxycodone.
The level of immaturity was too much for the Dolphins so today, they released him.
Tennessee was ready to drop the lineman only a year after drafting him in the first round because of his off-field issues that included a DUI. Now, only a day after his career with Miami officially began, he is back on the street without a football team to work with.
It will be highly unlikely that he will get another shot this year with any team in the league. He is going to need some time away and he will need to grow up. While his actions were not viewed by many as something to be overly concerned about, some have pointed to the combination of everything and that this only continues to show that he is not likely going to change anytime soon.
The move will add some money back into the Dolphins cap space but Miami will need to find another option. Wilson was a no-risk high-reward prospect and it didn’t pay off. The Dolphins were at least smart enough to move on earlier than later.
