Report: Patriots’ Decision On Signing Trent Williams Revealed

The New England Patriots were linked with Trent Williams, but it doesn’t look like the franchise is interested in him.

ESPN’s Field Yates says the Patriots aren’t a destination for Williams despite their interest in trading for the Pro-Bowler.

“Regarding a possible Trent Williams trade, one team I believe you can cross off is the Patriots. Isaiah Wynn continues to progress in his recovery, with Dan Skipper getting reps in the meantime. Can’t see New England being involved.”

The Patriots were one of the three teams that were linked to the player.

The Redskins reportedly want Williams back.

“I shot my shot,” Adrian Peterson said of his efforts to convince Williams to rejoin the team. “I know how Trent is, so I just left it alone. After we talked that first time about it, I wasn’t going to be the guy that was going to pester him or anything like that. I don’t know. To be honest with you, I don’t know. I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t come back, and if he did, I wouldn’t be surprised. That’s honestly where I sit.”

Peterson added that he “only had one conversation” with Williams about the situaton and became aware of the fact that returning to Washington would be “a decision [Williams] had to make on his own.”

Peterson also added that Williams’ absence is felt on the field.

“Trent is the best left tackle in the league, hands down,” he said. “He’s the most athletic left tackle in the NFL. And to not have him on the left side, it hurts. When you’re missing the best player on the team, you’re going to feel the effect of that. It’s different for our quarterbacks to sit back there and not know for certain that their back side is protected. When Trent is back there, you know that your back side is protected. It just brings confidence for the quarterbacks and for the running backs, too, within the run game.”

On Monday, former Redskins safety Su’a Cravens mentioned Williams’ case in a long Twitter thread in which he said the team accused him of inventing his injury and denied him insurance while he recovered from a concussion. Cravens is fighting with the Redskins over money.

“2 years later and I’m still fighting the Skins on something they’ve continued to do countless time(s),” Cravens wrote in one of his tweets. “Which is why the best tackle in the game refuses to play for them now. Same reason I left. Mishandled injuries and withheld info. All evidence points to them being guilty!”
