We are now two days away from the NFL’s trade deadline(Tuesday, October 29th, 4pm), and there has been no activity from the Redskins. They continue to get calls from teams about the only remaining holdout in the NFL, LT Trent Williams. Bruce Allen will reportedly wait until after the season to take any calls about Williams. The disgruntled offensive lineman plans to report to the team before Week 10 to accrue a season, and get one year closer to being free from this organization.
This morning two more Redskins names were thrown out for possible trades. Ian Rapoport mentions that Josh Norman is being shopped, something that Albert Breer also reported a few days ago. That trade would not bring back much in return due to Norman’s age and contract.
The new name in the trade market is Ryan Kerrigan. Jason La Canfora reports that the Baltimore Ravens, Indianapolis Colts, and others are interested in the Pro Bowl OLB. Kerrigan’s contract is up after next season, and he will be 32 next August. He is on pace for his worst statistical season since entering the league as a 1st round pick in 2011. La Canfora says it doesn’t sound like the Redskins are looking to move Kerrigan, despite the fact that they are 1-7, and need to rebuild under a new Head Coach next year.
The Browns have been most heavily pursuing Washington’s star left tackle Trent Williams, who vowed back in the spring to never play for the team again and has held true to his word, but they are hardly alone. (Sources said Giants left tackle Nate Solder is Cleveland’s other top target.) Several teams have real interest in Washington linebacker Ryan Kerrigan as well (Baltimore and Indianapolis among them) but are not getting the sense Washington is looking to move the team leader despite facing what could be a long roster rebuild ahead.
”It’s not like you are dealing with a normal team,” as one AFC GM put it. “The only sensible thing to do with Trent Williams is to trade him, but they don’t even want to listen. It’s crazy. And I don’t think that’s going to change by Tuesday.”
Should the Redskins trade Ryan Kerrigan?
