It seems like a matter of when, not if, Washington trades Williams, says The Athletic.
In addition to the Chargers, teams like the Browns and the Jets could make sense as potential suitors. Washington has not found a team that’s willing to give up a second-round pick and pay up for Williams. That could change after the draft, but do they really want to wait and have to settle for a 2021 pick in return?
Here’s a deal that could make sense for both sides. The Chargers signed cornerback Chris Harris in free agency, and Harris has said they told him he’d man the slot in their secondary. Even before he signed, Harris made it clear he wanted to play the slot, not the outside, going forward. But The Athletic’s Daniel Popper noted Harris’ addition puts King in a strange spot. King was a first-team All-Pro selection in 2018. He didn’t play up to that level in 2019 but is still only 25.
Would it really make sense for the Chargers to relegate King to fewer snaps in a dime role?
