Trent Williams' agent criticizes Redskins for not dealing in good faith, asks for team to make a move

  Trent Williams' agent criticizes Redskins for not dealing in good faith, asks for team to make a move Somehow, Trent Williams is still with the Washington Redskins. At the beginning of March, Washington finally let the unhappy Williams seek a trade. It was a long time coming, and it made little sense why the Redskins hadn’t done it before. The Redskins, who have botched plenty of situations through the years, miscalculated the Williams situation. Williams has insisted he won’t play for the Redskins again. His displeasure goes back to a misdiagnosis of a growth on his head that he said turned out to be cancerous. Washington stubbornly held onto him anyway.

The Washington Redskins gave seven-time Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams permission to seek a trade earlier this month. That came after Williams sat missed the 2019 season due to a holdout.

While Williams was reportedly asking the Redskins for quarterback money ahead of the team putting him on the trade block, we now have more clarification on the situation.

ESPN’s Josina Anderson reported Saturday morning that Washington’s asking price of a second-round pick might not be firm. It is willing to work with teams to get Williams out of D.C.

There were previous reports that the Redskins were working to extend Scherff on a longterm deal, as to avoid using the franchise tag, but that apparently did not get done.The one year deal is expected to have a value of approximately $16.1 million, according to Over the Cap.

At issue here is the veteran’s contract demands.

From Williams’ perspective, it makes sense that he wants to be among the highest-paid left tackles in the NFL. He earned seven consecutive trips to the Pro Bowl prior to sitting out last year.

Williams’ current contract calls for an average annual salary of $13.6 million, the seventh-highest total in the NFL among left tackles. Even at 31 years old, he’s worth more than that.
