Trent Williams and his agent saw how quickly the Redskins moved on from Quinton Dunbar, and the pair are now demanding the same.
He continues to discuss how the two parties have now reached a boiling point and, despite Williams' best efforts to find suitors, Washington was "unable (or unwilling)" to negotiate a trade on his behalf.
The new CBA discourages holdouts, enforcing the policy that if a player doesn't report, he loses his accrued season toward free agency, giving the Redskins all the leverage. Since Williams is under contract for the foreseeable future, it doesn't make sense from a front office perspective to not capitalize on a trade.
But, the longer the team waits, the more it risks driving down Williams' price even further.
In the meantime, the Dolphins sent LT Laremy Tunsil, albeit significantly younger, to the Texans, and netted two first-round picks.
The Browns were interested in acquiring Williams during the 2019 season, per reports, but the conversations were one-sided.
Williams didn't take the field for the Redskins in 2019. His trade value declined and the team got nothing in return because he is still on the roster.
From an organizational standpoint, if the offers have been dissatisfactory, it is understandable why the team has been reluctant to accept a lesser trade and has opted to keep holding on to Williams.
This statement from Williams' agent puts pressure on the Redskins to make a move, but with the new CBA rules, they still hold all the cards.
Should they trade him to a team of his choosing if they get an offer that meets their threshold? Absolutely.
But is it worth taking 75 cents on the dollar after all this time? That's up to the front office.
