Washington has told multiple teams this summer it is not trading 7-time Pro Bowl OT Trent Williams, per sources. In fact, at present, they reportedly don't have plans to move him.
Williams has been a holdout throughout training camp and stayed away from the team's mandatory minicamp in June.
According to PFT's Mike Florio, the Redskins could "pursue $1.62 million from Williams, which is the amount of unearned signing bonus remaining on his current contract".
According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, veteran running back Adrian Peterson thinks Williams's presence would be beneficial to the rookie. The Redskins, meanwhile, spent a first-round draft pick on Dwayne Haskins and don't intend to part ways with their primary quarterback protection.
"I think it it's making Dwayne Haskins have to think more, [and] not process things as calmly", Peterson noted, before expanding upon his point. Guys are coming off the edge in practice right there on the QB & the RB.
Does Peterson believe the severely fractured relationship can ultimately be repaired, though?
A little hate won't force the Redskins into a trade.
Williams' frustration stems from the diagnosis of a benign tumor on his scalp, which needed to be surgically removed.
