Isaiah Wilson's spectacularly failed tenure as a member of the Tennessee Titans appears to be nearing its conclusion.

A message posted on Wilson's Twitter account Monday night – and subsequently deleted – said "I'm done with football as a Titan. ... No further comments."

Titans' first-round draft pick Isaiah Wilson says he's done with team 

Despite the unmistakable meaning of that deleted tweet, the Titans haven't yet confirmed they were done with Wilson. There has been no update from the team on Wilson's status changing as of Monday night.

It wouldn't be a surprise, though, for the team to part ways with the 2020 first-round draft pick. Not after comments last week by general manager Jon Robinson that suggested the franchise was running out of patience with Wilson.

"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," Robinson said. "... We have a certain standard that we want players to prepare and perform at professionally and as people. A lot of work to be done there."

An offensive tackle from the University of Georgia, Wilson only played in the final moments of one game for the Titans.

He was arrested on a DUI charge prior to the season's first game. He was suspended for a game at one point, and then the Titans placed him on the reserve non-football illness list to finish the season, citing "personal issues, which will take some time for him to work through."
