On Tuesday afternoon, the NFL's trade deadline came and went without any significant moves. Arguably the biggest news of the day came shortly after the deadline closed.

Washington Redskins star offensive lineman Trent Williams reported to the team this afternoon.

Although he remained away from the team until now, the move was expected. In order to accrue the 2019 season, Williams needed to rejoin the team this afternoon.

Despite his decision to rejoin the team, the star left tackle has no plans to play this season.

According to a report from Redskins insider JP Finlay, Williams "has no intention of playing this season."

Washington's offensive line has struggled immensely without Williams on the left side of the line this year.

The Redskins reportedly hoped to recoup a first-round pick for Williams, but no team came to the table. As a result, he remains on the roster, but appears to be unwilling to suit up for Washington.

Williams, 31, had stayed away from the Redskins since July, reportedly upset with the way the team handled a medical issue he endured last season.

Several teams were reportedly interested in trading for the perennial Pro Bowler, but it looks like he'll remain on the Redskins' sideline.
