Seven-time Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams made good on his promise to not play for the franchise in 2019, saying in separate interviews this fall that he’ll “never be a Redskin again” and that “the bridge has definitely been burned” with the team that drafted him fourth overall back in 2010.
That is the least of his worries today after a Houston area family accused his pack of dogs of mauling their pet to death in their own backyard.
The images are said to be too graphic to even show on TV or even social media.

“Residents in The Manors subdivision said the dogs at that home often roam the streets.
“I’ve probably seen them out at least 20 times, to the point where I will not walk with my dogs or my children on this side of the neighborhood,” said another neighbor Sarah Sanders.
ABC13 reached out to Williams, who claims that the animals were actually defending his smaller dog as it suffered an attack from Sandy. That pet, he says, is now fighting for its life and has incurred about $5,000 in veterinary bills.
Williams added that he did nothing wrong, and claimed that’s why he wasn’t cited by police or animal control.”

“I found my dog halfway ripped apart, head and one leg on the other side of the fence, two of those stakes ripped through the body and one leg just dangling,” said Jerry Flowers.
“They drug her head through the fence,” Linda Flowers said. “Half of her body was through the wrought iron fence.”
The 31-year-old is currently in the fourth year of his five-year, $66 million contract that includes $43.25 million guaranteed.
In 2018, Williams started 13 games for the Redskins. Pro Football Focus rated Williams as the No. 21 tackle out of 80 qualifying players.
