    News & Notes: Williams Remains Unsigned
    By Gary Fitzgerald

    Posted: July 28, 2010

    One day before the start of Redskins training camp, rookie offensive tackle Trent Williams remains unsigned.

    Williams could miss the Redskins’ first practice, scheduled for Thursday at 4 p.m., if he does not have a rookie contract in place.

    Williams was the Redskins’ first-round draft pick (fourth overall) in last April’s NFL Draft.

    As of Wednesday afternoon, only one of the 32 first-round draft picks – Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dex Bryant, selected 24th overall – had agreed to terms on a rookie contract.

    Head coach Mike Shanahan said he would be “surprised” if Williams were to miss significant time in training camp due to his contract situation.

    “I don’t think it’s unusual for guys not to be signed yet,” Shanahan said on Wednesday. “Our organization has been very fair, and very fair to draft choices. There’s always that market value that people are trying to figure out.”

    Complicating matters is the fact that Williams is slated to start at left tackle on the Redskins’ revamped offensive line.

    Simply put, Williams needs as many reps as he can get to be fully prepared for the start of the season.

    “The quicker he gets in, the better off he’s going to be – for all of us,” Shanahan said.

    Following the Redskins’ last mini-camp in June, Williams told reporters that he hoped to be at training camp on time.

    He said he did not anticipate a lengthy training camp holdout.

    “Obviously I want to be here,” Williams said. “They have me working with the first group, so I really can’t afford to miss any practice time.”

    Last year, Redskins top draft pick Brian Orakpo missed one day of training camp before signing his rookie deal. In 2007, top draft pick LaRon Landry missed three days of training camp.

    Man I hope so. The second rounders seem to be signing in bunches now. The less he misses the better.
