Report: Redskins refuse to field trade offers for Trent Williams amid contentious holdout

According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, veteran running back Adrian Peterson thinks Williams's presence would be beneficial to the rookie.

Both sides are entrenched in the bitter holdout between left tackle Trent Williams and the Washington Redskins with news landing Monday that the team doesn't intend to budge.

Williams is reportedly unhappy with how the Redskins medical staff diagnosed and treated a "serious" medical issue a year ago.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports, via Twitter, that Washington will not trade Williams. Because of that, it seems unlikely Washington would be able to get a first-rounder in addition to another selection for Williams, although stranger things have happened.

Rumors about the Redskins eventually trading Williams have been present for the past month or so, but if Schefter is to be believed, Washington plans to be keeping their best player for as long as they can. Despite overtures from other teams, they have no intention of dealing the seven-time Pro Bowler.

One of the game's premiere pass blockers, Williams, 31, is a good fit for a team looking to win now and upgrade its line.

If Williams is intent on remaining a holdout, Washington will probably have no choice but to find a trade partner for him at some point.
