Trent Williams is holding out from the Washington Redskins and reports have suggested that the All-Pro offensive tackle is uninterested in playing for the franchise.

Washington, meanwhile, does not seem willing to part ways with the former first-round NFL Draft pick.

Redskins insider JP Finlay has reported that the team turned down a significant trade offer for Williams. The Patriots reportedly made a big offer.

New England was reportedly willing to give Washington its 2020 first round pick in exchange for Williams.

The Redskins said that's not enough.

Williams, 31, was taken No. 4 overall by Washington in the 2010 NFL Draft. He's been a seven-time Pro Bowler and was second-team All-Pro in 2015.

The Patriots' 2020 first round pick is likely to be a late one, but you rarely see NFL teams willing to give up a first in a trade, even for a proven player.

Williams is reportedly frustrated with the Redskins' handling of his medical issue. He had a growth/tumor removed from his scalp this offseason.

The Redskins are set to open the regular season on Sept. 8 against Philadelphia. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. E.T.
