There are now less than 24 hours until the NFL trade deadline and numerous teams are scrambling to plug holes or offload expensive talent in lost seasons. But one team that has been on the fence about a trade since the season began is the Washington Redskins with LT Trent Williams.

For months Williams has been holding out, refusing to practice with or play for the team that drafted him. Williams has adamantly demanded the team trade him, and after months of balking, it looks like Washington is ready to relent.

However, according to NFL reporter Albert Breer, Washington is currently "ascertaining interest across the league." Breer reported that the team is currently asking for a first-round pick in exchange for the seven-time Pro Bowler.

It also appears as though Washington has an offer on the table that they aren't taking.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported that Washington is telling other teams that they've been offered a second-round pick for Williams.

Monday has already featured several significant trades.

The Miami Dolphins traded leading rusher Kenyan Drake to the Arizona Cardinals in the morning.

Earlier this afternoon, the New York Jets traded former Pro Bowl DE Leonard Williams to the New York Giants.

But both of those trades were for mid-round picks. It will be interesting to see what kind of compensation teams are willing to dole out for a Pro Bowl left tackle.
