Redskins sign 1st-rounder Trent Williams

Posted on: July 30, 2010 9:18 am
Trent Williams, the No. 4 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, signed with the Redskins early Friday morning, according to a release from the team.

The deal reportedly is a six-year, $60 million max deal with $36.75 million in guaranteed money.

Williams is the highest drafted individual to sign with his team thus far, and the only top five pick to ink. That's a chunk of guaranteed cheddar, even for a blue-chip offensive line prospect, so it's reasonable to expect that you'll see Sam Bradford get up near (or above) that $50 million mark when he does sign with the Rams.

Of course, one important aspect of getting Williams signed early is that Washington expects him to start at left tackle and protect Donovan McNabb's blind side for the duration of the season; getting him into camp for the maximum amount of exposure to team activities was crucial for the Redskins.

Plus, now we all get to turn our attention back to Albert Haynesworth ... who just failed his second straight day of conditioning tests.
