Tennessee Titans first-round pick Isaiah Wilson arrested for DUI
Wilson was expected to play a major role on the Titans offensive line, as he was selected with the 29th overall pick in the NFL Draft. Wilson was placed on the COVID-19/reserve list earlier in training camp, which is where he still resides.
“We are aware of the situation,” the Titans said in a statement. “This is not conduct that is indicative of the character of our football team and we are working through details on how to proceed.”
Wilson was arrested around 11:30 p.m. on Friday night, and released on bond around 1:30 a.m. He’s scheduled to appear in court in early October.
This isn’t the first time Wilson has been mentioned on a police report this offseason
Wilson also attended an off-campus event at Tennessee State University earlier this offseason. While he wasn’t arrested, Wilson was directly named in a police report, and received a trespassing warning. At the time, head coach Mike Vrabel addressed the unsettling offseason activity of the Titans’ first-round selection out of Georgia.
“You’re not going to be able to control a professional football player outside the building,” Titans coach Mike Vrabel said during training camp. “Always hopeful that we’re making the right decisions away from here and doing everything we can to maintain the best health we can.”
Obviously, such actions aren’t ideal so early in the career of a promising young NFL player. Hopefully, this incident can serve as a turning point for a man the Titans have high hopes for entering the 2020 season and beyond.
