The Washington Redskins have put star offensive tackle Trent Williams on the trade block and it looks like the defending Super Bowl champions are interested.

You mean to tell me Trent Williams could potentially land with the Patriots and Bill Belichick?

Williams was selected by Washington as the No. 4 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, but the organization is now looking to move the big fella.

Reporter Dov Kleiman suggested that Williams may be looking for a pay raise after signing a 5-year, $66 million in 2015. The Oklahoma product just turned 31 earlier this month and will likely finish his contract elsewhere.

The star left tackle hasn't been present for training camp and the Redskins look like they intend to move on without him -- Washington has signed Corey Robinson and Donald Penn in order to fill in the gaps.

New England would become even more dangerous if they were to add a player of Williams' caliber. Every other team in the NFL is undoubtedly rooting against Washington trading him to New England.
