At 1-7, the Washington Redskins are in last place in the NFC East and halfway through another lost season. They are expected to be sellers before tomorrow's trade deadline.

Earlier today, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Washington was finally coming around to trading holdout offensive tackle Trent Williams. The market for Williams should be pretty robust, even though he has not played this season.

Rapoport's colleague Tom Pelissero added tonight that the Redskins are also dangling cornerback Josh Norman around the league. It might not be possible to find someone to bite on him though.

In his fourth season with the Redskins after signing a five-year, $75 million contract prior to the 2016 season, Norman has struggled to live up to his contract recently.

He's played in seven games this season, starting six, but has dealt with nagging injuries.

Norman will turn 32 in December and probably only makes sense for a contending team with cap space that thinks he can help as a rental.

Norman is owed $15 million next year but NBC Sports Washington's J.P. Finlay reports that none of that money is guaranteed.

The NFL trade deadline is 4 p.m. ET tomorrow.
