2020 NFL Draft: Redskins trade Trent Williams to 49ers for two draft picks

Trent Williams is finally on the move, as the Washington Redskins agreed to trade the seven-time Pro Bowl left tackle to the San Francisco 49ers, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora confirms. The 49ers will give up a 2020 fifth-round pick and a 2021 third-round pick to the Redskins. 

Williams has a connection to the 49ers, as San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan was part of the brain trust that drafted Williams No. 4 overall in 2010. The familiarity with Shanahan is expected to pay immediate dividends in the 49ers zone-blocking scheme, one season after finishing second in the NFL in rushing yards. 

Williams, who will be 32 years old in July, made the Pro Bowl seven consecutive seasons from 2012 to 2018 before sitting out the 2019 season due to disagreements with Redskins management. He is owed $14.5 million in 2020, the final year of his contract.
