Washington coach Jay Gruden said Saturday it’s unlikely the Redskins will try to trade holdout offensive lineman Trent Williams.

“I would seriously doubt that. So, no,” Gruden responded when asked about trade rumors involving the Pro Bowl left tackle.

Whether the disgruntled veteran can be enticed to rejoin the Redskins remains a mystery.

“I do not have an understanding of what it would take to get him back here,” Gruden said. “If I did, he’d be back here.”

The Redskins placed Williams on the reserve/did not report list last week after he failed to show up for training camp.

Williams is said to be unhappy with the medical staff after a tumor scare earlier this offseason and also would like at least an “alteration” to his contract.

Williams, 31, has reached seven consecutive Pro Bowls. He has been with the Redskins since 2010, when they took him fourth overall in the NFL draft.
