Offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson is out of a job less than a year after being picked in the first round of the NFL draft.

The troubled 22-year-old Brooklyn native cleared waivers Sunday, as expected, following a tumultuous three-day tenure with the Dolphins, his second team.

Wilson was released by Miami on Saturday after showing up late for his physical and team meetings, failing to attend workouts and refusing personal help from the team, according to multiple reports.

The 6-foot-6, 350 pound lineman was acquired from the Titans in a trade, which was agreed to earlier this month but finalized last week, and also included a swap of seventh-round picks.

He appeared in one game, four plays, with the Titans in his rookie season, mostly due to off-field issues, including a DUI charge in September.

The Titans, who used their 29th pick on Wilson, placed him on injured reserve/non-football illness in December to deal with what general manager Jon Robinson referred to as personal issues.

Tennessee ultimately voided the $11 million salary guarantees.

A standout at Georgia, Wilson did not appear to have character concerns coming out of college.
