Trent Williams issues with Skins are not financial at all according to numerous sources with knowledge of the situation. He's told teammates he has demanded a trade or his release from the club due to their handling of his recent medical situation. Has vowed not to play for them

Excellent numbers from PFF ranked #3 over the past 3 years.

 

Josh blind side would be rock solid

Only unless we can fleece Washington by offering Dawkins and a 2nd.

That seems high.......older player, highly paid with injury history.  Maybe a second but keep Dawkins.

 

That said, i do not see Washington trading him.  They have enough O line issues without creating more.

I'd send a third for him. 

 

Williams - Dawkins - Morse - Spain - Ford 

 

looks good to me.

Washington's medical staff sounds like an absolute joke.

 

They said Guice's injury last year was no big deal then announced he tore his ACL

They rushed Colt McCoy back and now hes had three surgeries for a broken ankle

and now Trent Williams? I'd fire the medical staff

Trent Williams is, without a single shadow of a doubt, elite. The issue is he is 30 and injury prone. But he is a top 4 left tackle in the NFL. He is streets ahead of anyone the Bills currently have.

Trent is excellent. Since he has demanded a trade the skins would be lucky to get a 3rd rounder. Maybe throw in a 7th for good measure.

Trent was suspended for substance abuse but I would take the chance anyway. He is better than anyone we have.

I am really interested to see how this goes... 

 

On the one hand, this organization is a joke so it could do anything and it wouldn't be a surprise. 

 

On the other hand, his reasoning for demanding the trade is not something anyone would want brought up- if he is really willing to sit out and not play, they would be stupid to let that hang over them.

Of all the “insert player that’s expendable because of injury/cap/competition,” players that are about to start popping up over the next few months, this may be one of, if not my favorite. 

 

The very early and unbacked best offensive line or top 10 offensive line talk in the league would start to show some actual potential.

Most of the medical staff are picked to attend $nyder's parties.

BS, this is about money.  He sees what guys who "graded" below him signed for after his 2015 deal. 

 

Guy's heading into his 10th season and his last full season was 6 years ago.  He's trying to walk away form 24 million over the next 2 years.  Unless his next team is fine with him playing for fractions of seasons (at a premium price), how many years does anyone really think this guy has value?

 

Hard pass.

People don't think he's going to be had for a 7th round pick or something, do they?

If you want the Bills to trade for him, fine, but are you ready to give up a 1st or 2nd round pick? Top 5 franchise LTs don't come cheap.

Two years left on his deal. Get him for those two years - we have the cap room. If he is healthy then our OL is significantly better for the next two years. He can mentor Cody Ford w the Okie connection.

Had to look up what "streets ahead" means.

 

It's one of those sayings that is new enough to not be old, but old enough not to be new.

It might be a British thing too.

Jason Peters got a low 1, a 4 and a conditional 6.  Peters was 27 and had no injury history.  I don't think Williams is worth that much at 30 with his mileage.
