Jay Gruden Redskins Presser: I seriously doubt we would trade Trent Williams

Jay Gruden answers questions before today's practice

NFL: Washington Redskins-Training Camp Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Jay Gruden spoke to the media before the Redskins Fan Appreciation Day. He was obviously asked about the ongoing Trent Williams holdout. He doesn't think the team will trade Williams, and he remains optimistic even though he doesn't know what he wants...

Jordan Brailford:

Starting QB:

Trent Williams:

Williams healthy enough to practice?:

"I don’t know yet. I don’t know where he is. I haven’t seen him and the trainers haven’t seen him in a little bit of time. I don’t know the answer to that one.”

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie's versatility:

"It’s important, you know because you never know on game day what’s going to happen. So, we’ve obviously run into that issue before here – guys have to play spots they haven’t really practiced a whole lot. But to have that ability where you have played different spots in big time situations and can do it, that’s important.”

Hugh Thornton:

“Well, I think [Director of Pro Personnel] Alex Santos is the Pro Director and he’s in charge of bringing guys in for a workout. You know, so we – he was on our list and we brought him in and he had a really good workout. He was light on his feet, he was in great shape, so we decided to sign him.”

Landon Collins:

Did Bruce Allen visit Williams during training camp?:

”You’ll have to ask Bruce that one now, won’t ya?”

Dwayne Haskins/Terry McLaurin:

"Well I think you flip that. I think it’s important for Dwayne to have Terry here. Terry’s awesome, he’s been great. He knows all the spots already. Very detailed at what he does, very explosive and [he has] good hands. So I think you talk about the character of the guy, you’re talking about a two-year captain at Ohio State. You know you got a great character kid already, so that’s not an issue. Very smart and very fast and very physical. So he’s, knock on wood he’s been outstanding so far.”
