According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, veteran running back Adrian Peterson thinks Williams's presence would be beneficial to the rookie.

Williams has been a holdout throughout training camp and stayed away from the team's mandatory minicamp in June.

Former Washington safety Su'a Cravens gave voice to Williams' concerns Monday, tweeting that the Redskins "know they're guilty" of mismanaging his own medical issue.

Rumors about the Redskins eventually trading Williams have been present for the past month or so, but if Schefter is to be believed, Washington plans to be keeping their best player for as long as they can. National Football League insider Adam Schefter indicated Tuesday what type of return might get a deal done.

"Since day one of camp you notice his absence is impacting us tremendously".

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, teams have contacted Washington about potentially trading for Williams but the club has shut those inquiries down. Though teams have "teams repeatedly have called about Williams", per the report, they have been rebuffed.

This stalemate between Williams and the 'Skins has gone on for some time.

If Williams is intent on remaining a holdout, Washington will probably have no choice but to find a trade partner for him at some point.
