The drama surrounding Trent Williams and the Washington Redskins keeps on churning. But, could an end to this debacle finally be on the way?
Well, if it does come to a close, a team out there is going to have to pony up some big pieces in order to land Williams via trade. According to NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the Redskins' front office wants a first-round pick in exchange for the massive tackle.
Oh, and that's not all they want, either.
Adam Schefter on with @kevinsheehanDC right now - suggests a 1st & 6th round pick could prob get a Trent Williams trade done. Says right now Skins aren’t trading Trent, but adds that can change.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) August 13, 2019
A first-round pick and a sixth-round selection in exchange for the 6-5, 320-pounder? It seems like a stretch, but you can't forget the kind of production Williams would provide.
Ever since arriving to the NFL in 2010, Williams has been a stud on the outside of the line, making seven Pro Bowls. He's appeared in 120 games for the 'Skins, starting 119 of them.
Washington has told multiple teams this summer it is not trading 7-time Pro Bowl OT Trent Williams, per sources. Williams has held out of camp, but Washington hasn’t flinched. Teams repeatedly have called about Williams, teams have inquired, and so far, teams have been rebuffed.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 13, 2019
While it seems Washington likely won't budge and trade away the OT, this latest report from Schefter indicates a team could very well end up changing their mind.
In order to do so, though, said team would have to put two draft picks on the table. For now, we'll have to wait and see if anyone jumps and makes an offer.
