Trent Williams asks Redskins to trade or release him

WASHINGTON (AP) — Trent Williams wants the Redskins to trade or release him. The agent for Washington’s longtime starting left tackle released a statement Tuesday asking the team to make a move with Williams. In the statement sent to The Associated Press, Vince Taylor cited “irreconcilable differences” that pushed the relationship between Williams and the team to this point.

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

Williams sat out the entire 2019 season because of a dispute with the front office. The Redskins did not trade him before the Oct. 29 deadline, with Taylor saying they were “unable (or unwilling)” to do so.

In November, Williams revealed he had cancer and said that situation led him to distrust the Redskins’ medical staff and organization as a whole. He said “there’s no trust” with president Bruce Allen, who was fired.
