Well, well, well. How the turntables…
If the reports that the Detroit Lions are to be buyers at the NFL trade deadline are true, then a very interesting name just emerged on the market.
Sources: The #Redskins are now open to dealing star LT Trent Williams. They have begun the process of looking at potential suitors, and the #Browns have been one. Unclear how high they set the asking price, but they’ll at least listen.

The Lions are desperate for offensive line help, and the current left tackle Taylor Decker has had maybe the worst year of his career. The move would certainly take some draft capital to pull off, but if the asking price is right, it’s not crazy to think the Lions would jump at the opportunity for an immediate upgrade.
The 31-year old Williams has made the pro-bowl each of the last seven years.
Williams is under contract through 2020 and carries a $14.75 million cap hit next season.
