CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - A trade by the Cleveland Browns to acquire Trent Williams is reportedly in the works, according to the Canton Repository’s Steve Doerschuck.

However, The Washington Post’s Les Carpenter tweeted Tuesday night that the Redskins are not giving up their star offensive tackle.

Williams, who is looking for a new contract, has not yet played a game in 2019.

The Browns (2-4) are in dire need of new talent on the offensive line, and Williams -- who is considered one of the best tackles in the NFL -- could help solve the team’s glaring issue.

He was drafted fourth overall in 2010 by the Washington Redskins and has made seven consecutive Pro Bowl appearances (2012-2018).
