2020 first-round NFL pick Isaiah Wilson says he's 'done' with Titans

Feb. 23 (UPI) -- A week after the general manager of the Tennessee Titans questioned Isaiah Wilson's desire to play professional football, the former first-round NFL draft pick says he's "done" playing for the franchise.

The Tennessee offensive lineman made the declaration in a tweet late Monday.

"I'm done with football as a Titan. ... No further comments," it read.

The tweet was later deleted.

Wilson, 22, was the No. 29 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and the Georgia product appeared in just one game last season, playing for just four snaps.

His rookie campaign also included a DUI arrest, a suspension for violating team rules, two placements on the reserve/COVID-19 list and a move to the non-football illness list in December.

"He's going to have to make a determination if he wants to do everything necessary to play pro football, and that's going to be on him," Titans GM Jon Robinson told reporters a week ago.

"I know what the expectation level is here, and it's no different than any other player on the football team. We have a certain standard that we want players to prepare and perform at professionally, and as people, and there's a lot of work to be done there."

Wilson is signed with Tennessee through 2023. The team has a fifth-year option for 2024, but could part ways with him sooner.
