Daily Dawg Tags: Cleveland Browns not likely to land Trent Williams
By Randy Gurzi
The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including one writer who says Trent Williams isn’t coming to Cleveland
Apparently not everyone is all-in on the Cleveland Browns trading for Trent Williams. On the surface, it feels like a move that would be easy to make.
The Browns need a left tackle and Williams is a Pro Bowler at the position. And while he’s a seasoned veteran, he still has at least four more seasons of good football in him — judging based on how long other left tackles have been able to remain effective.
However, the cost to do business is steep. Not only are the Washington Redskins rumored to be asking for a lot in a trade, but Williams apparently also wants an extension worth roughly $20 million per season.

"“First, Dorsey is no longer in charge of the Browns and if he wasn’t willing to meet Washington’s asking price then, the odds that new EVP of football operations and GM Andrew Berry will are slim to none.Second, Williams reportedly is seeking a mega deal in the $18-20 million per year range, a price the Browns aren’t likely to meet, not with much younger and cheaper options available in the upcoming draft.”"
