Trent Williams reports to Washington

Left tackle Trent Williams didn’t get traded by Washington before Tuesday’s deadline, but there has been a change in his status.

According to multiple reports, Williams had ended his long holdout and reported to the team. Williams was at odds with the team over their handling of a growth on his head that was eventually removed and found to be benign. Williams is also thought to want a new contract and asked for a trade away from the team.

The team said they were not going to deal him, but there were reports on Tuesday that they were open to a deal that would bring back at least a first-round pick. Cleveland was the team most often linked with a potential trade, but none came to fruition.

Williams is under contract through the 2020 season.

  1. What a disaster of a situation that is for all parties involved.

    Big mistake by Washington. His value can’t go up and the team can’t go anywhere with him so….

  2. Redskins are fools. Keeping a player who is in the last year of his contract, haven’t played for half the season and shows no interest in helping the team and also in his 30’s. You get offered a 1’st I see no reason to turn that down especially it might be a top 15 pick.

  3. Trent loses a large amount of money, Skins lose out on a good player for most of the season, or draft picks they could’ve used to build around Haskins (or draft a decent QB), Fans keep on losing watching this joke of a front office try to keep winning ‘off the field’. Rinse & repeat….for the next 30 years.

  4. Washington..a once proud franchise..For those old enough..remember the GREATNESS of John Riggins both on and off the field? Snyder has absolutely ruined that franchise.

  5. When The Baltimore Colts left in the middle of the night.
    we were forced to watch the Redskins . I was never a fan but I watched a lot of
    those games …They were some great teams!
    Snyder should be ashamed of himself.

  6. Snyder wouldn’t trade this guy, purely out of spite, even though his atrocious 1-7 team desperately needs draft picks. If Snyder has no real interest in winning (as further evidenced by Bruce Allen staying on the payroll) why should anyone bother to follow this team? Sincerely, a 47 year long fan tendering his “maroon and black” resignation.

    If more WA fans did this, it would have an impact. Tip of the hat to you.

  8. Dorsey didn’t cave. Well, at least he did this right after mismanaging the Browns offensive line the last two years. Maybe he’s putting his ego aside and finally figuring out that stars don’t win games as much as strong lines in the trenches. Well, maybe… Now, about that head coach…

  9. 5 serious QB injuries, including 2 broken legs in the last 2 1/2 years. Something massively wrong in Washington

  10. I don’t understand why the Skins didn’t just trade Trent, but what a surprise?! Trent doesn’t want to be there so trade him and get something for him, good grief. Bruce Allen needs to be fired, Dan Snyder needs to sell the team and they need a start over!

  11. The Cowboys get Bennet from the Patriots for almost NOTHING and the Skins do nothing and accept a guy back that does not want to be there! GREAT!

  12. “Williams is under contract through the 2020 season”

    This is the 2019 season, so he is signed through next season as well. He could play 1.5 years at the Redskins before they get nothing for him.

  13. I was hoping that the Vikes would trade Reiff, Rhodes and a mid round pick to Washington for Williams.

  14. Did not want to lose any more money plus another vested year. Tried to be like AB, Jalen Ramsey and force his way out but ended up like M Gordon. That, and the Redskins blew it by not getting rid of him this summer. Still don’t get the growth on the head thing since it’s not caused by playing, I mean, what are team doctors supposed to say? I’m sure he could afford to go to an outside source covered by insurance that would have been able to look at it. Just strange excuse to try to get out of playing for Redskins.

  15. Trade him now!
    What have the Redskins won while he was the LT? Nothing worth talking about. Okay, everyone says he’s the best LT in the game. Who gives a fat rat’s rear end? Obviously having the games best LT is not necessary to win, and does not lead to winning seasons. Let him be a malcontent on somebody else’s roster. Best spot for him is loserville Cincinnati.

  16. There’s no question to me that Trent let many of his brothers down. I’m not cut out like that. I would have played, made my Millions, and worked toward a trade; if that’s what I wanted. Instead more hurt running backs and quarterbacks. Wonderful. Thank’s for the help, Trent. The Redskins and Chargers both stood up to their best player this year. It is unfortunate for all of the other coaches and players on the team that these players held out. Wish I could make millions and bitch about it.

  17. Well I guess I should have looked at the clock. Explains why I care about the Redskins, can’t keep up with the time of day and miss the deadline. Par for the course for B. Allen and the rest of the wingnuts running the franchise. It could only happen in the idiocy of Washington, DC.

  18. Apparently Washington wanted a first round pick for Williams but was never offered one, they weren’t willing to move him for a second rounder.

  19. It was surprising they didn’t trade him.
    It’s even more surprising that he’s reporting.
    He didn’t want to be there so he’s making sure his contract accrues a year so he can get the hell out of there ASAP.

  20. It turns out that Williams will not play this year despite reporting to the team and that the Redskins brass think they will get more for him in the offseason than they could’ve at the trade deadline. That’s why he wasn’t traded.

    That organization is so stupid.

  21. Williams is a player who clearly does not want to play for the Redskins, who is on the wrong side of 30, and will hit free agency next year is one of the most BONEHEADED moves by the Redskins since 2009, when they paid Albert Haynesworth $100 million to do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. They could possibly have picked up a 1st round pick for him and now they will get NOTHING for him when he hits free agency. This franchise is going down the tubes fast. UNBELIEVABLY STUPID MOVE

  22. Williams is a player who clearly does not want to play for the Redskins, who is on the wrong side of 30, and will hit free agency next year. FAILING TO TRADE HIM is one of the most BONEHEADED moves by the Redskins since 2009, when they paid Albert Haynesworth $100 million to do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. They could possibly have picked up a 1st round pick for him and now they will get NOTHING for him when he hits free agency. This franchise is going down the tubes fast. UNBELIEVABLY STUPID MOVE

  23. The nfl should create a rule whereby if a team’s attendance level stays below a certain level for so many games, then it will be deemed that the owner is not representing the team, the league, and the fans it the appropriate manner and thereby be compelled to sell.

  24. “Hey, I have a guaranteed spot in the front of the line for the upcoming Iphone 12. I’ll trade you my spot in line plus my iphone 11 for your iphone 3gs that doesn’t work”

    Redskins: “No thanks”

    “Williams is under contract through the 2020 season”

    This is the 2019 season, so he is signed through next season as well. He could play 1.5 years at the Redskins before they get nothing for him.

    —————————–

    We won’t play a single down for the team over the next 1.5 years. He will be paid not to play for the second half of the season and he either get’s traded in the offseason or we repeat this again next year.

    The question is do you get more value for a 32 year old tackle who hasn’t played in a calendar year in the offseason when there are plenty of other options or do you get a better deal for a 31 year old tackle who only missed half a year at the trade deadline when teams are desperate.

    There is a reason Washington has been so bad for so long. As long as Snyder/Allen show Trent who is boss, they don’t care about the team.

    Trent don’t care what Snyder/Allen think so this will continue to be an embarrassing cluster for the fans.
