I might throw a little more guaranteed money his money but I'm not reupping him on a big money 5-7 year deal. Give him a 4 year deal with a way out for us after 2 and a little more money upfront, then we can think about replacing him in the next year or two.

Agreed. Trentís good for two more years with drafting of at least one or two OT this draft. We need young backups like Martin and these new draft picks.

Moses should be dropped, he had a horrible year and dragged Scherff with him into the abyss. Resign Flowers, Trent, Scherff.

Another problem for Trent was the medical staff. Theyíve also been given the boot. Another obstacle to his return is removed!

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

I would trade him. Medical staff may have misdiagnosed but if he was really that concerned about it he could have gotten 2nd and 3rd opinions. His hold out was mostly about money. He may have valid points about the medical staff but that doesn't mean he couldn't have gone else where to get another opinion Yes he is one of the better LT but he hasn't played a full season for 2 or 3 years. He is old trade him for what ever you can get, even a klondike bar... as far as I'm concerned. Clear up the cap space by trading older vets and those who have a high cap hit... Resign Scheriff(sp) if we can or you can tag him for one season and try to work out a long term deal.

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

I love Trent but he should have been moved in August. Trade him for a second and move on. I think any team trading for him may have to agree to resign him so that really reduces his trade value imo.

Maybe at this point Trent just wants it over with and wont insist on a new deal with the new team?

Give Trents agent permission to shop him and see what they come back with.

I think this is the best approach. Drama aside, we are rebuilding now and there's no place for an old, injury-prone player who wants a crap ton of money on the roster. If we were "close," my opinion might be different, but we're not.

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

I think there's a case to be made for bringing him back as long as there's not a significant new financial commitment. I'd consider an olive branch offer to extend him by one year and guarantee both of those years.

Reason: this team clearly needs to see that its owner is interested in righting a lot of wrongs. Allen has been fired, the trainer Larry Hess has been fired, and we've hired a coach who is big on accountability. Good steps. The team also needs to see more. They need to see an org chart that makes it clear who has the personnel and negotiating power, they need to see that said person is transparent, fair, and trustworthy. And it would go a long way if Snyder reached out with an olive branch to its best player, as a way of acknowledging that Bruce should have handled it differently.

The human impact on the locker room would be worth an additional one year commitment to Trent. It might even bring some fans back. People crave an acknowledgement that things were done incorrectly before. Any outward displays of such will galvanize the locker room and the fan base.

At this point, this is a needed move from an Emotional Intelligence standpoint. A good leader would recognize that everybody just needs this, regardless of whether Trent will still be here when we're finally good.

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

On a personal level I don't want him back. That entire thing with his dogs just made me seriously dislike the guy. It showed me he is not only a careless stupid ass, but he has little to no empathy. Good riddance.

You're able to put it into words in a way I can't. I agree. Obviously Trent is getting up there in age but not only does it help in the way you mentioned but it pushes a major problem back 1-3 years. I think we take for granted how much having a stud LT does for a team, since it's been 2 decades since we've had a bad one.

I agree with your sentiment, but the part in bold is why this is simply not going to happen. By Trent's own mouth, this all started because Trent wanted a significant new financial commitment and Bruce said no. I have no idea why Trent would change is mind now and decide to take less money, even if its guaranteed.

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

I donít care if Trent and BA had a disagreement, you donít throw the owner who went out of his way to help him in a time of need and fans under the bus. As far as Iím concerned Trent is done here.

I kind of agree although if DS wants to show he can be a bigger man, not back biting or petty, mending wounds with TW would be one way.

Trent threw Dan under the bus? Was this something newly reported? Trent said in the interview a month or so ago that Dan was not the problem and .. aw hell ill google it.
-----------------------------

Now, he's not upset with everyone. Throughout the back-and-forth, Williams mentioned Dan Snyder multiple times. The comments were all positive.

"I have a ton of respect for Dan and what he's done here," Williams said of the often-criticized owner.
https://www.nbcsports.com/washington...elief-redskins

While Williams has said owner Daniel Snyder was supportive, including flying the tackle on a private jet for examinations in Chicago to see a doctor Snyder recommended, it was team president Bruce Allen who damaged his relationship with the organization. 106.7 The Fan's Craig Hoffman reported a source close to Williams says he maintains his respect for the Redskins owner because he feels Snyder helped save his life.

ďIt wasnít his fault. Heís not down there in the training room. Itís not on him. Itís not on anybody. I had a very rare form of cancer; my displeasure comes from how long it lingered and how it was neglected and how it almost cost me my life,Ē Williams told the media in October.

By refusing to play and sit. Play for the owner who cared and fuck BA.
