The Redskins traded disgruntled offensive tackle Trent Williams to the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday, ending a year-long saga between the left tackle and the organization.
Now with San Francisco, Williams will have his best opportunity to compete for a Super Bowl championship as a pro. He's also now teammates with cornerback Richard Sherman, who he has quite the history with.
Following the Seattle Seahawks divisional playoff victory over the Redskins in January of 2013, Sherman and Williams exchanged words with one another. Sherman asked Williams "What are you gonna do, boy?" which led the former Redskins offensive tackle to punch Sherman in the face.

After hearing the news, Sherman took to Twitter to give his new teammate a warm welcome to the Bay area and threw in a little joke as well.

"I'm gonna need a rematch," Sherman joked.
It's been over seven years from the scuffle, but the cornerback seems determined to put their differences from then aside in order to pursue a ring next season.
