Trent Williams says'the bridge has definitely been burned between him and Washington

With the information coming out, it's safe to say that Williams' tenure in the nation's capital is coming to an abrupt halt.

Williams was diagnosed with Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans, a soft-tissue sarcoma that develops in the deep layers of skin.

Williams had yet to play a game this season, as he held out the first eight weeks of the year. Despite his current status with the team, Williams wants to play in 2020 and has Super Bowl aspirations per Dan Graziano of ESPN.

Later down the line, Jones explains that Williams told him of repeated attempts to get the medical staff to further look into the growth, even asking them to remove it while he was under sedation for surgery on his knee.

'I guess nobody really took the time to realize what was going on, ' Williams told reporters last week. "I don't know much more about it".

He was the offensive coordinator at Trinity Christian-Cedar Hill High School and coached at Prime Prep Academy charter school. Odell Haggins is serving as the Seminoles' interim coach for the remainder of the season.

Williams said that a Northern Virginia hospital eventually provided a more serious diagnosis.

'No, there's no trust there, ' Williams said.

Williams holdout was not entirely the outcome of the misdiagnosis. The CBS Sports reporter also said many National Football League teams were becoming frustrated with the Bengals for "their unwillingness to trade players like A.J. Green, Geno Atkins, Carlos Dunlap, Tyler Eifert and Dre Kirkpatrick".

It's been pretty common knowledge for anyone remotely plugged into this Trent Williams vs. Washington Redskins' situation that the distrust felt by the 31-year-old left tackle stemmed from a misdiagnosis of a cancerous tumor on his scalp.

When Williams asked to be sent to a dermatologist in 2016, he says he was again told the growth was a cyst and nothing to worry about. His five-year, $66 million deal - which would have tolled if he did not report to the team - expires after the 2020 season, and he is scheduled to make $12.5 million in base salary next season. Instead, the seven-time Pro Bowler ended his holdout and returned to the team's facility.
