CelebNSports247.com reports Trent Williams “dissatisfaction” the Redskins came with their “handling” of a medical situation that ended in a growth being removed from his head.
If you recall, Trent’s growth — which doctors worried was malignant — turned out to be far less serious, but seemingly upset the seven-time Pro Bowler to the point of wanting out of DC.
Fast forward to now, Trent Williams reported to the team before the deadline and will be eligible to play the remainder of the season.
For now, the Redskins reportedly passed on a second-rounder for Williams and will look to trade him again this offseason.
The team was reportedly looking for a first-round pick or a top-tier player in return. They expected an offer from the Patriots and Browns since they were considered to be the potential frontrunners but it didn’t play out as they wanted.
According to ESPN the Browns quickly balked when Washington brought up star cornerback Denzel Ward.
