Report: Redskins Want Picks and CB Denzel Ward for OT Trent Williams

With the NFL trade deadline this afternoon, there’s still plenty of speculation (and hope by many Browns fans) that the team is going to pull off a deal for an offensive lineman.

The lineman that many Browns fans still want is Redskins Trent Williams, a player who has stayed away from the team and is currently on the team’s reserved list for not reporting.

Williams could be a huge boost for the Browns line, and while the rumors are the Redskins are asking for a ton, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network stated this afternoon that it’ll not only be draft picks the Browns would have to give up, it’s also a player – in this case Denzel Ward.

Here’s the tweet from Rapoport:

The #Redskins are now open to dealing LT Trent Williams, but they aren’t just asking for draft picks. I’m told they are big-game hunting, asking for players like CB Denzel Ward in return. Which… is a non-starter.

Williams is a seven-time Pro Bowl tackle, and was a first-round pick out of Oklahoma in 2010, but it’s hard to believe at this point the Browns would even entertain an offer like picks and Ward for the 31-year-old tackles services.
