Trent Williams traded to 49ers

Trent Williams

It’s finally happened — the Washington Redskins are parting ways with Trent Williams.

As first reported by Ian Rapoport, Tom Pelissero, and Mike Garafolo of NFL Media, the Redskins have traded Williams to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for a pair of draft picks.

Rapoport noted that the Redskins had a similar deal in place with the Minnesota Vikings, but Williams nixed it. This one is approved, as Williams is known to be close with 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan.

Williams also has no extension in place with San Francisco.

For the 49ers, Williams could replace Joe Staley, who is rumored to be strongly considering retirement. From Washington’s perspective, they’ve finally put an end to a relationship that has been publicly toxic for some time now.
