The saga between the Washington Redskins and Trent Williams is finally over, the San Francisco 49ers have completed a trade for Williams as per Ian Rapoport
“Finally: The #Redskins have agreed to terms on a trade of LT Trent Williams to the #49ers, per me, @TomPelissero & @MikeGarafolo. It took until Day 3 of the Draft, but Washington gets it done, and SF gets help at a position of need. It’s for a 5th this year and 3rd next year.”
San Francisco surrendered a fifth-round pick and a 2021 third-round pick for Williams. Williams has prior experience with Kyle Shanahan. Shanahan was once the offensive coordinator in Washington while Williams was there.
Williams will replace veteran offensive lineman Joe Staley who is expected to retire due to health concerns, sources told Adam Schefter of ESPN.
