Re: Trent Williams holding out for new deal

Don't trade him ... but don't pay him either.

He has two years left on his contract. Make him honor it. At least one year of it.

Scherff is more of a priority right now.

Trent Williams holding out for new deal

Trent may miss a few games a season, but he also plays when hes not even close to healthy (moreso than playing with the normal dings that come with pro football). A 70 percent Trent is still better than most left tackles. Dude doesnt give up sacks and hes running down field and pancaking defenders on runs. Plus he can swing inside in a pinch. Trent is the best player we have on the team. Linemen can often perform at high levels longer than other position players. Hes timed the demand perfectly in his favor.

Not only that but Ty is gone and knows there's literally nothing behind him. Christian didn't show much last year and we're going to be playing a rookie QB. Trent holds all the cards if you ask me.

True.

Agree 100.

Love him but the league is a business.

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

There is only one analysis that matters when deciding to pay him top money.

How many games do we win this year with him, without him?

(If you respond, please give the number of games you think he plays as well.)

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.

Re: Trent Williams holding out for new deal

It's a smart time for him to do this with the investment the team just made that they expect him to protect for another 3-4 years....

Re: Trent Williams holding out for new deal

Cut Vernon Davis and give Trent a few million per year more. Otherwise, you go into a major rebuilding mode.

We should just go into rebuild mode.

Re: Trent Williams holding out for new deal

This is pretty shitty and selfish of Trent and his agent for pulling this shit when knowingly that Scherff is up for a contract renewal, the team is in the hole for $20M for Alex Smith. The team put up with his pot suspensions, getting hit in the head with a bottle at bar in Hawaii and his many injuries. The only way to pay Trent and Scherff is to cut Norman, Reid and Davis.

So nobody is actually going to value wins added for next year?

He is already making bank. So you're advocating making him the highest paid OL.

You should at least be able to value what he brings to the team in wins.

No he isn't. He is looking out for himself, just like every other smart player and smart owner.

None of that is his fault.

You're talking socialism brah.
