Aug 30, 2015 at 2:15 AM
Washington Redskins left tackle Trent Williams agreed Saturday on a new five-year contract that comes with $32 million in guaranteed money. Williams' agent, Vincent Taylor, said Williams will receive an $8.5 million signing bonus. The sixth-year veteran will receive an average salary of $13.2 million, and the $66 million deal provides for an additional $11.25 million in guaranteed money if he gets injured. Taylor said the contract is the largest in NFL history for an offensive tackle. Williams, 27, was selected to the Pro Bowl in each of the past three seasons. He was drafted fourth overall in 2010 out of Oklahoma.
