Unlike the star running backs holding out of training camp this summer, Trent Williams isn’t likely to return to the Washington Redskins this season.
According to a new report from JP Finlay, Williams “does not intend to suit up” for the Redskins.
Washington reportedly considered trading the Pro Bowl offensive lineman, but head coach Jay Gruden said that’s not happening.
Well, after Finlay’s new report, it looks like the Redskins are out of options with their star offensive lineman. Williams is unhappy with the team’s medical staff after they failed to diagnose a serious medical issue last season.
Here’s more from the report:
Sources explained that the situation is not all about money, rather his contract status along with the series of allegations that the seven-time Pro Bowl tackle has lost faith in the team’s front office and medical staff.
Williams signed a five-year deal worth $68 million back in 2015. Despite facing several injuries during that span, he’s made seven appearances in the Pro Bowl.
Losing Williams would be a massive blow to the Redskins’ offensive line. The team needs to protect rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins – if he starts – and young running back Derrius Guice.
Stay tuned for more on the developing situation.
