It finally happened.

After a year of speculation and rumors, the Washington Redskins have agreed to trade left tackle Trent Williams to the NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers. 

The Redskins, who previously had hoped to receive a high draft pick in exchange for the seven-time Pro Bowl left tackle, will have to settle for a 2020 5th-round draft pick and a 2021 3rd-round draft pick. Williams will reunite with former Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. It is likely they will restructure the soon-to-be 32-year-old left tackle's contract, which has one year remaining. 

Williams' agent Vincent Taylor said in a statement after the trade after nine years in Washington, "the time has come to part ways."

"Trent Williams is ready to get back to competing in the NFL and is glad to be a part of a great organization like the San Francisco 49ers," said in a statement.
