With two weeks until the NFL trade deadline, rumors are starting to heat up.
The Cleveland Browns are reportedly interested in Redskins left tackle Trent Williams, and one reporter even claimed the seven-time Pro Bowler should be on the Browns’ roster “quite soon.”
Steve Doerschuk of the Canton Repository reported the Williams-to-Cleveland rumor on Tuesday. Four days earlier, Doerschuk suggested “there’s a chance” the Browns could send tight end David Njoku, another player and a “very” high draft pick to Washington in exchange for the tackle, who has now missed six games over a dispute with the Redskins.
But soon after the tweet, Redskins officials denied the rumor to multiple reporters, including ESPN.
Last week, team president Bruce Allen said in a press conference “there has been no dialogue with any other team” regarding a Williams trade. Asked if he’s considering trading Williams, Allen said, “No. Not at this time.”
