Most Likely Trent Williams Trade Destinations
With Week 1 of the regular season almost here, no one knows what the future holds for Redskins offensive tackle Trent Williams. The Pro Bowl tackle remains a training camp holdout, with teams showing interest in landing him via trade.
But, which teams make the most sense to make a move here with Washington? In this piece, we take a look at four organizations who should pick up the phone:
4. Oakland Raiders
With Jon Gruden now in charge and heading into his second season in Oakland (soon to be Las Vegas), the Raiders are all in for the future. Well, with Derek Carr coming off a rough year, how about a Pro Bowl left tackle to block his blindside. Williams is still only 31 and has plenty of good football left ahead of him. Oakland could be a promising landing spot.
3. Cleveland Browns
The Browns had one of the busiest offseasons of anyone in the NFL and they may not be done just yet. With Joe Thomas happily retired, the offensive line doesn't have a standout leader. Enter Williams? The man has been to seven Pro Bowls and is one of the best tackles in the game. He'd quickly become one of Baker Mayfield's best friends.
2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
There's a new man in charge for the Bucs: Bruce Arians. He demands excellence from his team and would undoubtedly love to add the veteran experience Williams would provide to his offense. Earlier this week, a report stated the Redskins would want a first-round pick, plus a sixth-round pick for Williams. Would Tampa Bay be willing to part with two picks?
1. Houston Texans
With the Houston Texans, they're also in some preseason drama of their own, as star pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney is also holding out. Could the two teams end up working a deal to include the two Pro Bowlers? It'd no question be a blockbuster deal, but it'd also solve plenty of problems for the two sides.
