On Tuesday, the Washington Redskins failed at trying to trade some of their older players before the trade deadline.
Reports around the league suggested the Redskins were working with the Cleveland Browns on a trade involving left tackle Trent Williams. But after what seemed to be a few hours of stubbornness, neither side budged. Sources close to the team shut down the idea as the clock struck 4:00 p.m.
Redskins Remain Stuck With Williams and Norman
There were plenty of insiders across the NFL speculating around the Washington Redskins, but despite their early reports, nothing happened. Along with Trent Williams, the Redskins sought a suitor for cornerback Josh Norman. The aging cornerback hasn’t performed well in 2019 and Washington smartly tried to move him. However, like their attempts at trading Williams, they reportedly asked for too much in return.
In prior months, Washington shot down any offers for their star left tackle. Reports said GM Bruce Allen wouldn’t even take other teams’ calls. And all of a sudden the Redskins wanted to move Williams at the last minute, but came up short.
