Isaiah Wilson, a former NFL first-round pick, asks for a second chance after a tumultuous rookie season with problems on and off the pitch that saw him being released by two teams.

On Saturday, the 22-year-old offensive tackle posted a lengthy statement on Instagram explaining what ultimately led to the former Georgia star being released by both the Tennessee Titans and the Miami Dolphins.

“Some of you may know me as GG, some of you may know me as Panda, even some of you know me as the greatest failure in NFL history. Today I write to you as Isaiah Wilson,” reads his caption.

“Before fame and glamor, I was just a kid trying to make history as the best player in New York City. I was the hope for my neighborhood. As time went by and success came my way, I struggled deeply to try to prove who I was to everyone by counting on my victories. I lost myself. I lost my mind. I lost my ability to love. I lost everything. “


The Titans selected Wilson with pick no. 29 in 2020. He played a total of four shots for Tennessee in a year full of ups and downs, including a DUI arrest in September. He was placed on the NFL’s reserve / non-football list in December.

He was then traded to the Dolphins in March but was released by the team a few days later after reports revealed he was hours late for his team’s physique, late for his hiring process, and didn’t show up. to the voluntary training he had committed to. .

Reports emerged soon after Wilson was arrested at gunpoint after engaging police in a high-speed chase in January, just two months before being swapped.

“Today I am writing to you as Isaiah Wilson, not asking for forgiveness, but hoping for a second chance,” he continued. “By the time I have spent away from the game I have learned so much about who I am as a human being. I finally love myself and feel incredible. Now I am ready to step back in that field with pride, integrity and passion.”

Wilson’s post came a day after he reportedly had his first NFL training since he was released with the Indianapolis Colts.

NFL fans witnessed an incredible sequence of events during Sunday’s Arizona Cardinals and Jacksonville Jaguars game.

The Cardinals sent Matt Prater out to kick a 68-yard field goal before half-time. If Prater had made the shot, he would have beaten his own NFL record for the longest field goal. The longest shot of his career was a 64-yard field goal in 2013, which passed six other kickers.

He lined up and threw the ball, but the kick was short.

Jaguars returning Jamal Agnew was in the end zone and caught the mistake and sent him out of the back of the end zone.

Agnew received some nice blocks and returned the ball at 109 yards for a touchdown on an electric play that got the Jaguars 13-7 at halftime. FOX broadcaster Gus Johnson was on the call and looked breathless as Agnew was racing for the touchdown.

The game has been tied for the longest in NFL history.


Agnew has already had a 102-yard football return for a touchdown this season. He also had a 100-yard return kick for a touchdown in 2019 when he was a member of the Detroit Lions. He also has four punt return touchdowns in his career.

Dallas Cowboys right tackle La’el Collins was suspended for five games earlier this month and details on the discipline began to leak on Sunday.

Collins, 28, was suspended on September 10 for missing seven drug tests and then trying to bribe the league’s test collector, ESPN reported.


According to the report, the NFLPA helped negotiate a lower suspension of just two games, but after the seven-year veteran appealed the suspension, a referee appointed by both the league and the Players Association denied his appeal and restored the original sanction.

Collins appealed that ruling based on his assertion that there were circumstances exempting him from some tests, including his uncle’s funeral and the death of Cowboys strength coach Markus Paul last November.


The suspension went into effect in the Cowboys’ week 2 win over the Los Angeles Chargers.

According to ESPN, the decision is not expected to be repealed and will be able to return in time for the week 7 game against the Minnesota Vikings.

After the initial suspension, Collins’ rep blew up the NFL.

“We are extremely disappointed with the way the NFL has handled the whole matter, from trampling Mr. Collins’ rights to the premature release of the information, knowing that a timely appeal has been filed to intentionally mislead the court during the hearing,” said Peter Schaffer, via Sports Illustrated. “The scale and effort the NFL has made to achieve its goals is frightening.”


Collins is entering his seventh season with the Cowboys, where he has started in 62 of 63 games.
