New York Giants sign 2020 1st round pick Isaiah Wilson
NY Giants could be on the verge of making a truly curious move, signing Isaiah Wilson
The NY Giants are always looking for help on the offensive line. They are now expected to add Isaiah Wilson, the Tennessee Titans’ 2020 1st round pick.
If that’s the best the Giants can do, it’s a puzzle. Wilson was the 29th pick just over a year ago. He’s just 22 years old and is a former New York native, growing up in Brooklyn and attending Poly Tech.
Wilson was Georgia’s right tackle for two seasons in 2018 and 2019. Across from him was Andrew Thomas on the left side of the Bulldogs line, something that’s now happening in New York City.
Wilson also played directly against Lorenzo Carter and Azeez Ojulari in training for many years. He knows many former Georgian players and coaches of this team. In fact, it was Rob Sale who recruited Wilson from Georgia, who is now his offensive line coach for the Giants again. There are a lot of dots connected here, so it’s no surprise that the Giants gave him a chance to resurrect his NFL career.
Wilson has spent the last year going through the COVID / Reserve list twice and he’s only played four snaps in total. He had a tumultuous career in Tennessee lasting less than a full calendar year. He was widely regarded as the biggest failure and the most disappointing player in the entire 2020 draft.
Wilson has been arrested several times in the past year. He was caught at a college party trying to flee the scene, he was impaired driving in September, he led the cops in a 140 MPH car chase in January as he was in possession of drugs, then attempted to run away from cops again in March for speeding. a construction zone, reckless driving, reckless driving, possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, and possession and use of drug-related items.
Overall, it was as bad an NFL start as any player could ask for.
In February 2021, Wilson then tweeted that he would no longer play football for the Titans but has since deleted the tweet. He was traded to the Dolphins for a 7th round pick in 2021. He was cut no less than three days from Miami after the trade, after refusing to show up to his training and other commitments agreed upon before signing. his contract.
Wilson is a struggling person but recently posted a video on Instagram promising to make up for past mistakes and get back to football. Isaiah trained for the Colts last week and the Giants saw enough to keep him and add him to the practice squad. It’s a safe and perhaps rewarding move that the Giants can afford to take an aviator.
Returning home to New York and playing with several college teammates will help Isaiah Wilson. It will be an indispensable support system that he did not have in Tennessee. Only time will tell
