Thanks for the well thought contribution.redskins fan. I came here because your team gets mentioned a lot by washington dc area beat writers as a potential trade partner. So, my thoughts from redskins perspective:
1. If I were you, I'd go with the guys you have. You drafted them for a reason, they are young, they are on rookie contracts, go with them.
2. If you really wanted Trent Williams, the price is a 1st round pick, minimum. Not a 2nd. a 2nd won't get it done. they are perfectly intent in having williams sit and not play at all before they get their asking price for a premium player at a premium position, the 3rd(?) most important position in Pro Football, Left Tackle.
3. Is Trent really that good? Yes, he's one of the best ever linemen in Washington, is still in his prime, had maybe his best season last year, and needs just a couple of more years (2-3) to solidify Hall of Fame status. you would see a MAJOR increase in your overall offense with him in your lineup. point blank, your QB is not getting touched *Whatsoever* by anyone rushing his blind side. Williams gives up maybe a sack or two a YEAR. Not a game. A YEAR.
4. If I were Washington, I would consider a 2nd round pick plus a young, talented player on your team who is on his rookie contact. an offensive lineman, a WR, a CB are positions of interest. Must be young and must be on rookie contract. No other player would be considered. And that's PLUS the 2nd rounder.
5. Washington has zero interest whatsoever in Jadeveon Clowney, they have no place to play him and don't want that salary either. So forget mentioning him, Washington has zero interest in him.
If I were the Texans, let your rookies play. It worked for Indy last year, major improvement on their line.
A key reason to get Richardson is we can't take anymore gambles with Watson's health. This franchise has already ruined one promising QB by not protecting him. Watson is in a different universe from that guy as far as talent. The problem of exposing Watson needed to end a year ago.
