Stop us if you’ve heard this before: Trent Williams and the Washington Redskins aren’t getting along very well. Once again, the Pro Bowl offensive tackle’s agent voiced his frustrations with the franchise.
Earlier this week, Vince Taylor had a request for the Redskins on behalf of his client, saying “The relationship between the Redskins and Trent Williams has reached a point where it’s in the best interest that the Redskins trade or release him.”
Taylor also said the Redskins haven’t willing to negotiate a trade for his client. On the other hand, the team is claiming that Williams simply wants too much money from his next team that it has hurt his value.
According to Taylor, any claims stating that Williams is demanding $20 million per season are “totally false.” On Thursday, he discussed this rumor with 106.7 The Fan’s Grant Paulsen and Danny Rouhier.

During his discussion on 106.7 The Fan, Taylor was asked if a $16 million salary for Williams would be a holdup.
“Right. If we could get to a point where we could talk about those numbers, that would not be a holdup for us,” Taylor told Paulsen and Rouhier. “The contract has never been the holdup.”
Judging off Taylor’s recent remarks, the ball is officially in Washington’s court.
