Back in August, the Washington Redskins told teams that left tackle Trent Williams wasn’t available in a trade, despite the seven-time Pro Bowler’s demand to play elsewhere.
Now months later — and with two weeks until the NFL trading deadline — their stance apparently hasn’t changed.
The Redskins have “stonewalled” teams inquiring about the price it would take to land Williams in a trade, according to Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer. The report came after a rumor emerged Tuesday that the Cleveland Browns were interested in the 31-year-old.
Williams, who is holding out over his contract and a dispute with the team’s medical staff, has yet to play this season. He missed all of training camp and is facing over $1 million in fines for holdout.
Team president Bruce Allen told reporters last week that he would not consider trading the left tackle.
