The Washington Redskins' long-running conflict with veteran offensive tackle Trent Williams could soon end, as the seven-time Pro Bowl selection may be traded during the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft, which starts on Thursday.

Williams, 31, frustrated with his 10-year franchise Redskins stemming from an issue with the medical staff, will “likely” be traded during the draft, per Peter King in NBC Sports' Football Morning in America column.

Williams sat out the 2019 NFL season for Washington after a trade did not materialize for the former fourth-overall pick of the 2010 draft out of Oklahoma. Williams has spent his entire professional tenure with the Redskins, but tensions boiled over last spring when the tackle had a cancerous growth removed that was previously diagnosed as “minor” six years prior by the club's medical staff.

Williams soon afterward demanded a trade or release and did not show up at training camp and ever since the Redskins have been seeking a suitable trade partner for the former Sooners offensive lineman.

The Redskins possess the second overall pick in this Thursday's 2020 draft, and while they are expected to select Ohio State edge rusher Chase Young, Williams' situation and availability could prosper into another pick later in the draft. For example, a dream scenario would be extracting a second-round pick given the franchise is currently without one in that round—going from picking the No. 2 selection to all the way to the third round's No. 66 overall. Given the team's bevy of needs around the gridiron, a chance at grabbing another young talent in the first three rounds would be helpful to the rebuilding process in D.C.
