Doubt anything will happen until the draft is over, and I think he stays

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

I'd be surprised if RR hasn't at least tried to make contact with him. If he has and TW is talking, then I'd say there's a good chance the regime change entices him back. If RR hasn't called/visited him or if TW spurned such advances, I'd say it's unlikely. In the latter instance I'd say we're more likely to learn before the draft because they will be looking for picks in a trade. If we hear nothing, then I agree he'll probably turn up for the first team activities after the draft.

Well, the TW situation seems like the last big shadow of the former front office. Not only that but how it is resolved, trade -extension-plays final year only, all have a direct bearing on how the team will approach free agency and the draft. I would really be shocked if nothing is announced pre-draft, and from the way Rivera has moved I think the TW situation will be a high priority resolution.

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

I agree. I see this as one of RR biggest challenges and priorities. This must be handled delicately and with RR showing that he wants Trent back in the fold. Bruce Allen created a lot of bad blood with TW, but itís all in the past.

If for some reason RR canít bring TW back, then anticipate he will be traded before the draft. We need a second round pick and thatís about what weíll get for him now.

However, Iím pretty optimistic that they will bring TW back, and his teammates will be happy to see him back. He was well regarded by his teammates and that may color Trentís decision to come back. We need him and heís worth far more than a second round pick!

I wouldn't be too sure that it's all in the past for TW. Snyder is still here and he just sat back, watched and did nothing to prevent BA from treating TW so poorly. I know that I'd be pissed off at Snyder if I were in TW's position.

I believe Brate is due 3/4 of salary to be guaranteed after March 3rd (approx)...he may be released. That guy would be awesome in a Skins uniform.

If you look around the league, there is a need for TE...the free agency market has never been better but teams like Dallas and New England will be thirsty.

If Scott Turner does bring his dad system into play...pass catching TE will be a must. It should be our focus in free agency
Ebron is a dumpster fire. If you canít put up solid numbers with Matthew Stafford throwing to you, you need to GTFOH.

Trent in his press conferences went out of his way to thank Snyder for his help in his cancer situation. Snyder let TW use his jet to get to the right hospital. Thatís the kind of stuff that will help get Trent back.

He was legit with Luck in Indy in 2018, 66 catches and 13 TDS

Okay Iíll give you one season. 2018 he had top 5 TD numbers in the league. Zero other seasons has he had more than 5 TD in a season. Only one other season over 700 yards receiving. Every other season was 300-500 yards receiving. Not impressive as far as Iím concerned to only have one good season as long as heís been playing with a top tier QB like Stafford.

But I hear your point, personally Iíd rather draft someone than spend big on Ebron

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

Ebron is the type of guy that will get overpaid in free agency. Him and Hooper. I would prefer to let Kyle Smith do his thing and come up with a TE in the mid rounds.

Look at Kittle? Complete TE that can do it all and is durable, 5th rounder. Kelce? 3rd rounder. Two of the best TE's are not 1st or 2nd rounders..

Kittle is going to reset the TE market and raise the salaries. Hooper, Ebron and others will no doubt get overpaid. I'd rather take the free agency money and get another corner or o-linemen.

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

I think weíll go into FA for TE with some money AND draft for the position this year. Right now we have NOTHING in the TE spot and we canít just HOPE a draft pick will fill that gapping chasm.

I like Hooper over Ebron but Kyle will know the best player!

Isnít it great that we actually have real player scouts and evaluators instead of that numbnut Bruce Allen.

Look you are going to overpay in free agency 2 out of 3 times, but thatís the penalty you pay when you are negligent for years at TE.

Turner offense will require performance at TE and you canít afford to swing and miss in the draft with an mid round selection. We absolutely should draft and sign a free agent TE. My best case scenario right now is Cameron Brate cut and we sign to a more reasonable deal than an Ebron/henry/hooper will fetch. Then draft the guy we want in the mid round...let him come in pressure free and learning in a new system.

But ebron, Henry and hooper will pay dividends immediately in our system. We have the cap room and paid 15 million for nothing last year. Why not get a baller?

Also look at receiver in free agency...thatís exactly where you would be stupid to spend money there with less proven or older guys coming off injuries...Iím gonna be fuckin livid If we hand out a Paul Richardson contract to WR in this free agency class.

But you point about not spending a 1st round on TE...I agree. TE and RB should rarely be taken in the first.
