Trent Williams from the Redskins up for grabs?

I’d rather bring back Glenn instead of getting Williams, at least we wouldn’t have to give up any draft picks

I wouldn't hate bringing Glenn back, with the expanding rosters he could be a backup swing guy as most had him as a guard coming out of school, he's had trouble staying healthy. Dawkins will be the LT for the Bills for long time, I don't think they trade anything to bring in Williams and bump their guy of that spot, it just doesn't seem like something McDermott or Beane would do.

Give up a second and pay $20 million per year for an old, maybe injury prone OT?  No thanks.

He's a great player and a HUGE upgrade over any of our offensive linemen. Would he want to sign with us? Also, if they don't want to move Dawkins to RT, move him to G or trade him. We are weak at RG and extremely weak at RT. I also think people make too much of the difference between LT and RT. Dawkins will improve his run blocking. He was a very good run blocker in school and excelled at it on a couple occasions as a rookie.

 

I can't believe some are preferring Glenn to Williams. Glenn isn't any good any more and Williams is still elite. I think his price will come down too.

The comp pick they get when he walks in Free Agency is a 3rd so the asking price is at least that plus a contract.

Awful idea to:

 

Give up any more premium picks

Trade for 32 year old player

Trade for players who have agents asking publicly for trades

Trade for players who are asking for 15-20 million per year

I here Miami wants him, but it is too costly for them. Skins wanted Rosen and a 6th rounder in return.

hahahaha, is Wash seriously asking for Rosen??? That's a hell of a QB room.  Then they draft Tua at #2? 😆

If they want a 3rd...pass.  Like others have said, he's 32, hasn't played in 2 years and prob wants 15Mil +... pass.

 

This conversation enlightens me that unless we could find a cheap other OT or another in the draft, Ford is our RT.

I'll say it again in this thread  

 

He wants big bucks and a long term deal.   so, NO. 

The Skins want too much in return if they don't cut him.   so, NO. 

 

How will he pass the physical even if considered?  He hasn't played much in the last 2 seasons.    so, NO.

Not a fit for the Bills but I’m interested in seeing how this plays out.  I’m guessing he gets moved for a third or a third and a sixth or something like that. How far he comes off his contract demands is the other thing.  He is still of the best LTs in the league and should have a few really good seasons left.
 

I hear that Washington is getting antsy about moving him which means they want it done before the draft.  That’s probably smart.  Cleveland is landing spot #1 for him and they’ll be taking an OT in round 1 if Williams isn’t already on their roster.  I’m sure other suitors are in that boat too.

 

I’m not sure what his final deal looks like or how exaggerated his demands are.  I can certainly see his agent floating a high number not only as a negotiation tactic, but also to limit options of trade partners to teams he wants to go to.  I think a contract around 3 years, $45M-$48M with a lot of cash up front is where this will land.

Naaw..Was just kidding. The only one who wants Rosen is Rosen.
