Trent Williams asks Redskins to trade or release him

Redskins to trade or release him. “data-reactid =” 23 “> WASHINGTON (AP) – Trent Williams wants the Redskins to trade or release him.

The Washington long-term starting left-wing agent released a statement on Tuesday asking the team to move with Williams. In the statement to The Associated Press, Vince Taylor called “ incompatible differences ” that pushed the relationship between Williams and the team to this point.

“ While Trent Williams will always love and respect Dan Snyder, his teammates and Washington Redskins fans, he wants to be traded or released, ” said Taylor. “It is time for the organization to act in a way that is in the interest of both Williams and the team. ”

Williams served the entire 2019 season due to a dispute with the front office. The Redskins didn’t trade him before the October 29 deadline, with Taylor saying they were “ not (or unwilling) ” to do so.

In November, Williams revealed that he had cancer and said the situation led him to mistrust the medical staff and organization of the Redskins as a whole. At the time, the 31-year-old said “there is no confidence” with President Bruce Allen, who was fired after Washington’s season 3-13.

The medical staff was also overhauled and new coach Ron Rivera took over control of the football activities. Rivera spoke to Williams, and it seemed that there was hope to restore the relationship.

Instead, the Redskins representatives authorized Williams to seek trading partners. So far nothing has come out.

“The Redskins have shown no interest in negotiating in good faith and have in fact made inconsistent demands on what they want in exchange for an exchange,” said Taylor.

Aside from his emotional dressing room meeting with reporters in early November, Williams hasn’t spoken much about his situation in public. Taylor said Williams also has not taken legal action against the team.

“This doesn’t seem to be a successful strategy,” said Taylor. “Players who are externally critical of the team will be exchanged. ”
