The NFL trade deadline has passed, and Trent Williams is still a member of the Washington Redskins. The Pro Bowl left tackle had been the subject of trade rumors.
Not only is Williams still with Washington, he has reportedly ended his holdout and reported to the team. Williams, 31, had stayed away from the Redskins since July, reportedly upset with the wa the team handled a medical procedure he had last offseason.
Williams' former Redskin teammate DeAngelo Hall seems to be the first person to tweet about the news.
Williams had to report by now, otherwise his contract would have tolled, and Washington would have owned his rights for two more years instead of just one.
Now, he'll collect the money he's owed for 2019 and will only be under contract through 2020.
Washington's offensive line has struggled immensely this season, and Williams' absence has no doubt been a big reason for it. The Redskins reportedly wanted a first-round pick for him in any trade, so they clearly weren't rushing to part with him.
We'll now see how quickly Williams will be up to speed in his return to the field.
