Trent Williams and Bruce Allen have a completely fractured relationship and the veteran left tackle is not expected to rejoin the Redskins, per a new bombshell report from CBS Sports.
As I reported months ago, relationship between Trent Williams and Skins is totally fractured. He doesnt trust Bruce Allen or the medical team there and made it known long ago he does not intend to play for them again— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) July 28, 2019
The news comes as the Redskins signed a veteran left tackle this week in Corey Robinson and amid reports that the organization is still in talks to sign former Oakland Raider Donald Penn. Without Williams at camp, the left side of the offensive line has been in shambles.
After four seasons in New York proved he is incapable at tackle, Washington signed Ereck Flowers as a free agent to experiment moving him to guard. Right now he's been the primary left tackle with Williams out. One member of the Redskins front office told NBC Sports Washington that the current situation is "unfair" to Flowers.
Williams still has two years left on his deal that will pay him nearly $30 million, but not much of the cash is guaranteed. There is also Williams' medical situation, where few details have been provided but Gruden acknowledged that there may have been a misdiagnosis on a growth on Williams' scalp.
Conversations around the team's training camp in Richmond have grown more pessimistic about Williams. Gruden sounded somewhat hopeful on the first day of camp, but speaking with team sources, it sounds like there has been little to no progress.
"We want Trent, but Trent's got to want us too," one member of the Redskins front office explained.
