One of the few stars still holding out this summer is Trent Williams. Washington doesn’t have any intentions of trading its Pro Bowl offensive tackle, yet other teams are showing interest in a potential trade.
Williams is undoubtedly the most productive offensive lineman for the Redskins. However, it doesn’t sound like he’ll be playing for the team at this point.
In the event that Washington does put him on the trading block, it won’t have a shortage of suitors.
According to NBC Sports Washington, three teams have shown interest in trading for Williams. The Patriots are one of those three teams that are pursuing him.
New England could use help at offensive tackle after losing Trent Brown in free agency.
There are two years remaining on Williams’ contract.

Williams has already missed the first preseason game of the year for the Redskins. He’s made it clear that his holdout won’t be a short-term situation.
Some reports have stated that Williams isn’t just staying away from training camp because he wants more guaranteed money, he also doesn’t trust the medical staff.
The Redskins don’t have to rush on any trade involving Williams, but it would make sense for them to consider moving him if they don’t plan on reworking his contract.
