Re: Trent Williams ends season-long holdout, rejoins Redskins

So, which one happens next:

A. The Redskins and Trent Williams kiss and makeup over a contract extension.
B. The Redskins attempt to put Trent on the exempt list so he doesn't accrue a year.
C. Trent Williams pretends that Bruce Allen is Richard Sherman.
D. Both B and C.

Re: Trent Williams ends season-long holdout, rejoins Redskins

All I got to say is:

Fuck Bruce
Fuck Danny
Fuck Trent

He won’t suit up and will have a shitty attitude. Fans should boo his ass and call him a Dumbass quitter.

Re: Trent Williams ends season-long holdout, rejoins Redskins

Bruce Allen proved, once again, why he is the worst GM in the NFL. Instead of trying to trade TW BEFORE the season started, when teams were searching for an elite OT, BA waited until the next-to-last day to offer him up. The Redskins looked desperate with this last minute move and the only team which was looking for an OT, the Cleveland Browns, wouldn’t give Bruce the first round draft pick he wanted. In SEPTEMBER, many teams were calling the Redskins for TW. The Texans gave up TWO first round draft picks and more to Miami for an OT who wasn’t in the same class as TW and who BTW hasn’t done shitte for them since the trade. Teams needed a seven Pro Bowl OT to fill holes before the season started, not with just hours to go before the deadline in the middle of the season. Eventually all those potential trade partners filled that hole. Now if a team needs an OT, they’ll draft for one.

So Bruce’s decision to “punish” TW by not trading him, has instead hurt the Redskins in several ways:

1. TW will never play for this team again. His hole in the OL must be filled this offseason, because we have a 36-year old OT who is just place holding that spot right now. The Redskins now have a depreciating asset that is worth less and less everyday.

2. Bruce Allen showed the NFL why he is considered the least-competent and disliked GM in the NFL. The “ USA Today” poll two years ago stated that’s what players and their agents thought of BA. Players in today’s NFL want to be traded all the time and 99% of the teams make the best trade they can from their disgruntled employee and move on. The move to hurt TW by not trading him looks stupid and amateurish.

3. This shows other players in the last year of their contract, who the team might want to keep, like Scherff or CT that the Redskins are vindictive and petty. After seeing what happened with Cousins or TW, would you want to deal with this management or trust them?

4. The team is in the worst position now because they have no draft pick to fill his OT hole and teams now know the redskins are desperate to trade TW as his value steadily decreases.

By making no trades, either to get rid of players who won’t be here next season OR to get one or two “fire sale” players to fill obvious holes in the team (like TE or the OL) Bruce Allen and Snyder show they have no real plan for getting better. Perhaps BA and Snyder think that their 1-7 record is just a fluke and the team is just ready to turn the corner toward success.

Do you feel better now? That was a tremendous rehash and I am really curious if venting helped.

Re: Trent Williams ends season-long holdout, rejoins Redskins

Absolutely terrible management. Bruce should be fired for botching this one. There is no factual evidence that the Redskins won not moving Trent. We should have had a fire sale being 1-7. Now we worsen any real chance at getting better next season. God awful franchise with an owner that is mocked and made the joke regularly on NFL shows. I have been a fan for almost 50 years and it's the worst product I've ever seen from this once proud franchise...

Re: Trent Williams ends season-long holdout, rejoins Redskins

3: R1p3 - edge chase young - ohio state
67: R3p3 - te brycen hopkins - purdue
109: R4p3 - ot josh jones - houston
140: R4p34 - cb eric stokes - georgia
147: R5p3 - s reggie floyd - virginia tech
216: R7p3 - lb mykal walker - fresno state
220: R7p7 - ot victor johnson - appalachian state

Going to be interesting to see what we do with our pick. Going to have a lot of good options. I want Andrew Thomas or Chase Young. There are some good skill guys out there too. Freaking sucks that instead of having Trent for another full year, we will have to spend at least 1 pick on a T.

This organization is arrogant and ignorant. That's not a good combo.

Re: Trent Williams ends season-long holdout, rejoins Redskins

According to JP Finlay, Williams will not play despite reporting back to Redskins. Does anyone know how this will affect his contract?

Depends how he goes about not playing.

If he fakes a bullshit injury resulting in the medical staff not clearing him to play, then he'd get paid this year and next year would be his last under contract with the Skins.

If he's healthy and just refuses to play that would be violation of the contract terms somehow and the team would have legal recourse. I'm not sure what happens then - that would be uncharted territory.

If he's truly not going to play, I would assume it would take the form of pulling a Jalen Ramsey with "back spasms" or some bullshit.

Oh, you know Bruce and Dan love the drama too. They believe, like Jerry Jones, even bad news is good because folks are talking about the team and the NFL.

But get ready for the DC media to go hard trashing everybody and stirring it up after the WS is over.



My question is this, how will Bruce trash Trent in leaks to the press? that train is never late
