Wilson epically flamed out of the NFL as a rookie last year but has been doing workouts and looking to get back in the league.
The Giants have a few connections on the coaching staff to Wilson from his time in college at Georgia, so they obviously felt comfortable giving him another chance.
Wilson’s rookie season included two appearances on the COVID-19 list, an arrest for a DUI and a suspension for breaking team rules. He was placed on the non-football injury list and the Titans said at the time he needed space to figure some things out.
Tennessee then traded Wilson to the Dolphins. However, Wilson reportedly refused the Dolphins’ efforts to help him get his life back on track and continued the behavior that caused the Titans to trade him to Miami just a year after they used a first-round pick on him.
Miami waived him a few days later.
Wilson, 22, was a two-year starter at Georgia and was named a freshman All-American in 2018 before being drafted with the No. 29 overall pick in the draft by the Titans.
He signed a four-year, $11,568,389 rookie contract that includes a $5,973,374 signing bonus. The contract includes a fifth-year for the Titans to pick up for the 2024 season.
The Titans traded Wilson to the Dolphins as part of a pick swap. However, Miami waived him in March.
During his three-year career at Georgia, Wilson appeared in 25 games, starting 24 of them at the right tackle position.
He was active in one game for the Titans in 2020 and played three snaps.
