The Miami Dolphins have acquired offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson from the Tennessee Titans, according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport. The deal calls for an unknown swap of picks. Wilson was the No. 29 overall selection in the 2020 NFL Draft

The former Georgia Bulldog appeared in one game for the team that drafted him. He was placed on the COVID-19 reserve list twice, suspended for the team’s Week 13 game following a violation of team rules. As of February 16, Titans general manager Jon Robinson had not spoken with Wilson since he was placed on the reserve/non-football illness list in December. The 22-year-old had also been arrested for a DUI in September. A late night post on February 22 suggested that the lineman intended to give up football. Days later, it was reported that Tennessee had begun to shop him in a trade

Robinson issued a challenge to the New York native. 

“He’s gonna have to make a determination if he wants to do everything necessary to play pro football. That’s going to be on him,” Robinson said, via Pro Football Talk

Wilson should compete for the starting right tackle position in Miami if he is able to stay on the straight and narrow path. Rookie Robert Hunt would presumably slide inside to the starting offensive guard position manned by Ereck Flowers.

Wilson is the second prospect to be traded from the 2020 NFL Draft. Miami also acquired wide receiver Lynn Bowden Jr. — a third-round pick — from the Raiders. He has three years plus a possible fifth-year option worth a little more than $5 million left on his rookie deal. 

The Dolphins have the ninth most salary cap space in the NFL at roughly $35.6 million. The franchise holds two first-round picks, including the No. 3 overall selection; acquired from the Texans as part of the trade for offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil.
