Four teams have shown most interest in Trent Williams

Washington has rebuffed interest in trade offers for the second overall pick tonight.

But they’re willing to take a second-rounder — or maybe a little less — for wantaway left tackle Trent Williams.

According to Les Carpenter of the Washington Post, the team has been asking for a second-round pick in exchange for Williams, but would be willing to consider multiple later picks if they can reach an equivalent value.

It seems likely they’ll deal him during the draft, as there are multiple teams interesting in adding a tackle one former G.M. said was better than any of the top tackles in this year’s class.

The Post names four teams as having shown the most interest — the Browns, Vikings, Eagles, and Jets.

While Cleveland seems the most natural fit, the inclusion of Philadelphia on that list is interesting.

The Eagles let longtime left tackle Jason Peters walk into free agency this offseason, presumably to clear the way for 2019 first-rounder Andre Dillard in that spot.

Of course, Williams’ desire for a new deal complicates any deal, as a team has to do more than satisfy Washington’s demand for compensation.

  1. A team would be crazy to trade for him until they find out what his contract demands are. Otherwise he’s just a rental.

    Fortunately, this isn’t the NBA. There are no “rentals” in the NFL because you can franchise a player. Ask Kirk Cousins.

  3. I can’t believe Bruce Allen soured the relationship with Trent. Way to treat one of the best players on your team who played through injuries smh redskins

    I can’t believe that they refused a 1st round pick from multiple teams last year….when everyone knew that this year’s draft was loaded at OL….

  5. I am tired hearing about T.Williams, the guy doesn’t want to play in Washington. How much can Washington ask for him? He hasn’t played in a year. He is 32 on top of it. If a team gives up a #1 pick for him the GM should be fired. I wouldn’t want him on my team.
