The Miami Dolphins have decided former first-round pick Isaiah Wilson doesn’t want their help.

Just weeks after acquiring the troubled offensive lineman in a trade with the Tennessee Titans, the Dolphins have cut the ex-Georgia Bulldogs star for his continued off-field troubles.

According to reports, Wilson showed up late to his first meeting with the team and physical, while also skipping two voluntary workouts he had committed to attending.

“The Miami Dolphins waived 2020 first-round offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson on Saturday, just days after acquiring him in a trade with the Tennessee Titans,” Cameron Wolfe reported on ESPN.com.

“Wilson was hours late for his physical and team onboarding process, skipped multiple optional workouts that he agreed to attend on Thursday and Friday, and declined support service help that he was offered, all in his first official week with the team, sources said.”

On Friday, Wilson was spotted dancing shirtless on top of a car in a video posted to social media.

Before landing with the Dolphins, Wilson had a wild ride in Tennessee.

The 22-year-old received a trespass warning at Tennessee State after fleeing an off-campus party during training camp, was charged with DUI after doing donuts in a Nashville intersection and later crashing into a wall. He was also placed on the reserve/non-football injury list and the COVID/reserve list twice.

The team had traded for Wilson last month, but it only became official just days ago.

Now, Wilson will be a free agent and will need to do a lot of work to earn another opportunity. At this point, it’s hard to know if Wilson even wants to play football again, but what is most important is that he gets the help he needs to get his life back on the right track.
