Future Hall of Fame left tackle Trent Williams will not play for the Washington Redskins next season. The seven-time Pro Bowler sat out all of last season amid a contract holdout.

While there was some optimism that things could be salvaged under first-year head coach Ron Rivera, that’s not the case. Washington gave Williams permission to seek a trade earlier in the offseason.

Nothing has come to fruition on this end. It has Williams and his Vincent Taylor now taking this public. Taylor released a statement to ESPN Tuesday morning absolutely blasting the Redskins.

As you can tell, Williams and his camp don’t believe the Redskins have acted in good faith when it comes to trade talks with other teams. Taylor mentions specifically that the Skins have given inconsistent demands when it comes to a potential trade.

This statement comes after it was reported that Williams’ asking price in an extension has been a sticking point for other teams. Complicating things further is the 31-year-old’s health. It’s been tough sledding for teams to get physicals done this month due to obvious reasons.

Despite Williams’ camp lashing out publicly, I am pretty sure something will get done on this front ahead of next month’s NFL Draft. Washington needs to get something for him. It’s that simple.
