Just play chicken with him.  You don't pay a draft pick to pay a player $20mm.  

The Redskins get to pay him $12.5mm this year that is not guaranteed.   It can all go swimmingly and he can play well, or they can fight about his health with him.     

By trying to trade him they are gambling that they don't get stuck with his salary.   I would wait it out.

The “source” used to be a Washington beat writer. 

Are the Redskins leaking this to dissuade teams from trying to trade for him?
 

“Hey Trent, we tried to trade ya big fella, but the strangest thing happened, nobody made any offers. If you wanna play at all next year, it’s gotta be for us”. 

Or maybe Trent Williams is just insane.

I’m giving him 30 guaranteed. If he plays 3 years he gets 30 more 

You do realize your contract would be $50 mil guaranteed because you're paying him $20 mil his first season with another $30 mil guaranteed?

He gets 20 guaranteed in year 1, 5 in year 2, and 5 in year 3. If he wants 60 mil he needs to play year 2/3

My last attempt at providing clarity. Your proposal would pay him $50 mil guaranteed after ONE season. The last two years would only pay him $10 mil. So 83% of his contract would be paid out after one year.....and that would be your proposal to incentivize him to play hard for 3 years?

3 year deal 60 million 

30 guaranteed 

20 year 1

5 year 2

5 year 3

keep him incentivized to play through the deal 

I struggle guaranteeing 30 million to a 32 year old that you’re not really sure can play.

Year 1 - $20 mil (Guaranteed)

Year 2 - $5 mil base salary (guaranteed) $15 mil roster bonus

Year 3 - $5 mil base salary (guaranteed) $15 mil roster bonus 

So $30 mil guaranteed at signing with $20 mil going to him year one. 

They way you said it it seemed as if you were ready to give out $50 mil in year one.
