ESPN’s Adam Schefter Has Telling Update On Possible Trent Williams Trade

Trent Williams' holdout from Washington Redskins training camp may be starting to affect one of the team's youngest assets.

Still, the team is steadfast in its refusal to trade the seven-time Pro Bowler, according to an ESPN.com report.

The team believes training camp fines of $40,000 per day will force Williams to eventually relent and report.

According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, veteran running back Adrian Peterson thinks Williams's presence would be beneficial to the rookie. It's unclear whether a new contract, or more guaranteed money in 2020 - the past year of his current deal - would appease Williams. The Redskins, meanwhile, spent a first-round draft pick on Dwayne Haskins and don't intend to part ways with their primary quarterback protection. Matter of fact, I think it's impacting all of our quarterbacks. Guys are coming off the edge in practice right there on the QB & the RB. "It's been a struggle".

"I wouldn't be surprised if he comes back, and I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't", he said.

Williams had a benign grown removed from his head during the offseason and is reportedly upset with how the team's medical staff handled the situation.

To Peterson's point, the bigger impact would be on the progression of Haskins, considering the amount of pressure on him to start making an impact fairly soon, and how challenging the learning curve is for a first-year signal-caller.

But say they came around and decided it would be in the best interest of both parties to figure out a trade.
