Redskins Also Interested in Roy Williams

Even though Rod Marinelli and Matt Millen have already said that they will not trade Roy Williams, it appears that the Lions' phones will still be ringing off the hook tomorrow.  Offers will likely come flooding in from Dallas and Philadelphia, and now it appears that Detroit should expect to hear from Washington  as well.

The Redskins have tried to trade their first-round pick, the 21st overall, for a top wide receiver, hoping to package the pick in a deal for Chad Johnson of the Cincinnati Bengals or another proven player at the position. Despite being rebuffed in their attempts to acquire Johnson and the Arizona Cardinals' Anquan Boldin, Snyder and Cerrato are determined to provide another high-profile target for Campbell and still might try to trade for Roy Williams of the Detroit Lions, according to league sources.

Detroit will listen to any and all offers, but when all is said and done I would say there is a 99% chance that Williams is still a Lion after this weekend.  The Lions want him to remain with the team for at least one more season, and then beyond 2008 is up in the air.  Discussion of what will happen once 2009 arrives can be left for another day, but for right now, I don't expect Roy to be on the move.
