All-Pro Trent Williams' tenure with the Washington Redskins is all but officially over, according to NBC Sports Washington.

"He's not coming back. Period," NBC Sports Washington reports, citing an unnamed source connected to Williams. Williams, the 4th overall pick in 2010 NFL Draft, has earned over $100M throughout his career in Washington. The team could fine Williams up to $500,000 for missed practices, he reportedly called it “funny.”

People within Williams' circle say he is reportedly unafraid to continue his holdout into the regular season. They called him ”unconcerned” about holding out beyond the September 8th season-opener, making the contract not fully vested.

At first, it was believed that Williams, a 7-time Pro Bowler, chief concern was an extension with two-years remaining on his contract to align him with salaries of other tackles. However, Williams underwent a medical procedure to remain a tumor on his scalp after years of concern.

Williams and his relationship with Washington has been described as “fractured,” he has reportedly lost trust in the team's and General Manager Bruce Allen. The report, however, states sources within the organization believe it’s about money. The unnamed sources close to Williams say it would require a new deal.

Washington opens the regular season at Philadelphia September 8.
