With his trademark smirk, general manager Bruce Allen threw another verbal log on the fire this week, declaring that estranged tackle Trent Williams will play football again for the Washington Redskins.
If the team’s broadcast can’t even support the team’s talking points, then all reason for hope is gone. Here’s where we go from here and how the team could end up with less than nothing:
Instead, Allen is daring Williams to get into a war of words. He either knows something he isn’t sharing or he doesn’t know/care about the consequences.
At this point, the Redskins have gone all-in on Williams returning. With the regular season starting next week and game checks on the line, we’ll see how long Williams can resist Redskins Park.
But even if Williams returns, there is no way that the Redskins are better for the drama. They can only hope to limit the damage.
