Trent Williams has been linked to a plethora of teams, which includes the Philadelphia Eagles. That would require the Washington Redskins to send the Pro Bowl offensive tackle to a division rival though.

Earlier this week, The Washington Postreported that Cleveland, Minnesota, New York and Philadelphia have shown interest in Williams. Judging off the latest report, the Eagles might not actually be in the sweepstakes for the former first-round pick.

According to ProFootballTalk, there’s “zero truth” to the reports saying Philadelphia wants to pull off a blockbuster move for Williams.

This could open the door for the Browns, Jets or Vikings to make a push for Williams prior to the start of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Williams doesn't just want a new home in the NFL, the talented offensive tackle would like a new contract as well. He only has one year remaining on his current deal with the Redskins.

When healthy, there aren't many offensive tackles that can perform at Williams' level. Unfortunately though, his time in Washington has been plagued by injuries and overall poor management from the front office.

It'll be interesting to see if the Redskins can ship out Williams either before or during this year's draft.
