Washington denies Trent Williams’ relationship with team is fractured

Former top-ten pick Brandon Scherff is entering the last year of his rookie contract and despite multiple offers from the Redskins, the two sides aren't close to a deal.

Washington denied a report from earlier Sunday that Trent Williams’ relationship with team president Bruce Allen was fractured beyond repair.

“That report is 100 percent false,” Tony Wyllie, Washington’s senior vice president of communications, told

Williams is holding out of training camp.

Washington signed free agent Corey Robinson and has worked out Donald Penn. It is playing Ereck Flowers at left tackle in Williams’ absence.

Washington signed Flowers to play left guard.

Williams, a seven-time Pro Bowler, reportedly is upset with the way the team handled his medical situation this offseason. He had a benign growth removed from his scalp.

Washington, though, needs Williams.
