Washington Redskins left tackle Trent Williams remains in limbo. He is still under contract, but has made it clear he will not suit up for the team.

Williams and the Redskins reached the point of no return because the seven-time Pro Bowler was unhappy with how the franchise handled a personal medical issue. As a result, Williams sat out all last season and has been the subject of trade rumors for some time.

Those rumors popped up again this week leading up to the NFL Draft. This morning, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport shared an update on the franchise tackle.

According to Rapoport, Washington has had discussions with "multiple teams" interested in acquiring Williams. He didn't provide any info on the seriousness of those talks or if a deal would be consummated before the draft started tomorrow night.

Earlier this week, ESPN's Josina Anderson reported that the Cleveland Browns were monitoring the situation around Williams. The Browns have been linked to the 31-year-old lineman since last year.

Before missing all of last season, Williams appeared in 13 games in 2018 and 10 in 2017. He started 12 games in 2016 after a suspension cost him the first four games of the year.

Williams has one year remaining on his current deal and will be an unrestricted free agent following the 2020 season.
