Re: Trent Williams holding out for new deal

This could not have come at a worst time IMO. I hope this doesn't result in us not being able to do Schreff's deal. Come on Schaffer, do your magic!

Dude has been an absolute monster for years for us, and now this shit?! Ugh. Goddamn, the roller-coaster ride of being a Skins fan. Straight up, why NOW?

Re: Trent Williams holding out for new deal

You know what they say, the best ability is availability. I'm not sure that statement completely applies when you're talking about a player of his caliber, and what he brings to the field when he is available, but he's missed something like 13 or 14 games in the last 3 years. Couple that with the fact that hes 31, I do think they have to be careful about how much they pay him, if they do give him a new contract. It does suck though, because where does that leave us if they can't get it done, with Erick Flowers? He has some leverage here, just hope it doesn't put the team in a bind... I suppose it could cause them to rethink the idea of releasing Norman...

This is the best argument I've ever seen in favor of paying Trent lol.

Aside from that, he's a team leader, he's always worked hard, and played through injury, and is amongst the best at his position. It's easy to see pay the man, but I'd give him a new contract with an out clause after 3 or so years because we know we're not getting 16 games a year out of him anymore.

Re: Trent Williams holding out for new deal

I personally don't mind if the team pays Trent, I just wish this was happening next year. Perhaps his health scare has changed something in him, which is understandable. It is just that I'm sure the team wasn't counting on this and now they have to pay him and Schreff.

For people who are on the "pay him" camp, are you willing to lose Schreff in order to pay TW?

Perhaps it may be possible to pay them both, but we don't know how much money Schreff is demanding. Or perhaps they can pay both but leave nothing left for an emergency signing.

I'm sure the triumvirate of idiocy (Paulsen, Russell, and Sheehan) are going to have a field day bitching the team about this. I just think it sucks and it is almost bad luck that this is happening to them.

Re: Trent Williams holding out for new deal

No way Iím paying TW over keeping schreff...younger and hasnít hit prime. TW has 2 years left...i donít see him missing game checks, maybe offer to see where he is after this year when we have more cap flexibility.

Re: Trent Williams holding out for new deal

If they can make the numbers work I'm all for paying him. He's a top LT. Anyone who says otherwise is a moron. But if there's a legit trade offer you'd have to consider it.

What would you consider a legit offer? I would hate to see him go, but like you said the numbers have to be right, or the offer has to be right.

OK, I finally voted "pay him", primarily because I wanted to be able to view the poll numbers. Very interesting. There were more "trade him" responses than I expected.

I pretty much agree with the bolded part above as long as it does not involve an extension of his current contract. His durability has waned in recent years and I'd hate to see the Skins carry significant salary cap dollars in future years for a player who is unable to perform.

I admit that I don't know how that can be done within the rules of the salary cap. Perhaps a bonus spread over the final two years of his contract. You know, for "exemplary career service" or something? I dunno. There must be some type of work-around.

I say trade him away. Anyone thinks this dude is anything but average is blind.



I couldn't agree with you more. We need to get rid of this bum right now!
Please stop

Trent is still a damn good player. You simply can not deny that.

Well, you can actually. You'd be wrong, but you can deny it.
