The Washington Redskins turned down an offer of a 2020 first-round pick from the New England Patriots for disgruntled left tackle Trent Williams, multiple outlets reported Thursday.

The Team 980 tweeted that the Patriots were told the offer “wasn’t enough.” NBC Sports Washington echoed the report: “Have heard the same.”

However, NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport questioned the veracity of the information. “From what I understand, this is false. ‘Unequivocally not true’ was the precise wording. So, carry on,” he tweeted.

Williams has been on the reserve/did not report list since he failed to show up for training camp.

He is said to be unhappy with the medical staff after a tumor scare earlier this offseason and he would also like to alter his current 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.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said earlier this month that he seriously doubted the team would trade Williams.
