The Trent Williams trade market is heating up!
Josina Anderson is reporting that there is “an opportunity” to have something done soon.
Source: Regarding LT Trent Williams: There's "an opportunity to have something done shortly." I'm told there's been "some really good constructive conversations" and there is "hope to get it done soon." My understanding is, it's a positive situation & the process is ongoing.— ig: josinaanderson (@JosinaAnderson) April 22, 2020
Trade talks, which have been dormant for weeks now, started to gain some steam Monday. It’s been reported that Trent could be traded during the draft. Now we are seeing something may indeed happen sooner.
A report also popped up this morning that the Redskins and Buccaneers had a deal in place to swap Williams for tight end O.J. Howard(per ESPN). That deal, however, fell through.
Wow. Bucs and Redskins nearly had a deal in place to swap OJ Howard for Trent Williams two months ago, but the deal fell through, per ESPN.— Jordan (@redskinstoday_) April 22, 2020
With the Bucs acquiring former All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski yesterday in a deal with the Patriots, many have speculated that Howard would indeed be moved.
