Trent Williams wants out of Washington, so he won’t be particularly pleased when he hears that a team was willing to take him on and was turned down.
The disgruntled left tackle has not been seen by the team pretty all offseason as he fights to get his way off the roster, but the franchise doesn’tseem willing to show him the door.
According to J.P. Finlay of NBCSportsWashington.com, the team recently turned down a massive offer from the Patriots for the left tackle.
The Patriots were one of three teams reportedly inquiring about Williams in trade discussions.
Many in Williams camp have already said: He’s not coming back. Period,” but the Redskins have told multiple teams this summer that they are not trading him despite his current holdout.
Williams started 13 games during the 2018 season and was rated as the No. 21 tackle out of 80 qualifying players by Pro Football Focus.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the report of the Redskins turning down a 2020 first-round pick from the Patriots for LT Trent Williams is “unequivocally not true.”
