While speaking with Mike Jones of USA Today this week, Williams revealed that he asked Redskins team doctors to remove the growth on his head on three separate occasions. The first was in 2017, when he was going to be sedated for a knee procedure and asked if the growth could be removed at the same time.

“I mean, I do want to play football still and I’m not a free agent until after the 2020 season, so who knows,” Williams told USA Today. “But the bridge has definitely been burned, and any efforts now, basically are, in my opinion, pretty much just CYA (cover your a–).”
