To say that picking Isaiah Wilson in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft hasn't worked out for the Tennessee Titans is an understatement. The former Georgia Bulldog played just 3 snaps in his rookie season, while he landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list twice and the reserve/non-football illness list once, also getting arrested for DUI in September.
There has been obvious tension between Wilson and the Titans, and that culminated in a very clear tweet (that has since been deleted) from Wilson on Monday night:
It's hard to imagine he plays another snap in Tennessee.
Whether he's released or the Titans manage to find a trade partner willing to take a risk on Wilson, here are the three most likely destinations for the 22-year-old tackle.
Isaiah Wilson Landing Spots
1. Baltimore Ravens
Orlando Brown Jr. has made it clear he doesn't want to play right tackle, meaning he's likely on his way out of Baltimore while the Ravens have Ronnie Stanley at the left tackle spot. Brown wouldn't likely be included in this trade, as the Titans have a starting left tackle in Taylor Lewan, but Wilson would likely be a cheap addition that would make moving Brown in a subsequent trade that much easier for Baltimore.
2. Buffalo Bills
Daryl Williams had a great season at right tackle for the Buffalo Bills, but he's set to be an unrestricted free agent. Buffalo wouldn't likely want adding Wilson to be their only move to address the right tackle spot, given how much risk is involved. But as a late first-round pick, Wilson's contract is very manageable, and the length gives the team a ton of upside if things do work out.
3. Seattle Seahawks
You'll notice a trend here — all the teams on the list are contenders that won't need to rely too heavily on Wilson. Being able to cut ties quickly if things don't work out, rather than allowing him to be a negative impact on the locker room, is important if you're going to add a player who has shown as many red flags as Wilson has so far. Offensive line seems to be a perpetual area of need for the Seattle Seahawks, but they've also shown a willingness to start late-round picks and unheralded free agents. Once again, signing Wilson is a gamble, but Seattle could make this a high-upside move that doesn't carry much downside if they quickly decide it's a failed experiment.
