Adam Schefter reports that Washington has no intentions of trading Trent Williams

Report: Redskins refuse to field trade offers for Trent Williams amid contentious holdout

ESPN’s Adam Schefter Has Telling Update On Possible Trent Williams Trade

Despite overtures from other teams, they have no intention of dealing the seven-time Pro Bowler.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, teams have contacted Washington about potentially trading for Williams but the club has shut those inquiries down.

Quarterback Dwayne Haskins, the team's first-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, is in the middle of his first training camp, and that glaring hole at left tackle might be impeding his development. Though teams have "teams repeatedly have called about Williams", per the report, they have been rebuffed.

"Since day one of camp you notice his absence is impacting us tremendously".

Trent Williams seems hellbent on never playing another snap for the Redskins, but it doesn't appear Washington believes it has no trade leverage. According to a league source via Pro Football Talk, on August 1st, Williams hasn't been bothered by the fines and continues to intend to not play with the team.

If the Redskins don't trade Williams, they could let the situation drag into the season, forcing him to either return or miss game checks.

The 31-year-old Williams still has two years remaining on the five-year, $68 million contract he signed back in 2015. But, if traded or cut, they can not recoup bonus amounts, as noted by the analyst.
