The Trent Williams holdout is costing the Redskins on the field, as the team is having to play each week without their best player. But the Trent Williams holdout is also costing Trent Williams, and one new report explains just how much.

On Sunday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter said that by skipping all of training camp, Williams racked up $1.2 million in fines, at a cost of $40,000 a day for the 30 days he missed in Richmond. 

On top of that, the left tackle also reportedly owes the team $743,000 from his signing bonus thanks to his absence from camp and the first two games of 2019.

Lastly, by not joining the Burgundy and Gold up to this point, he's left more than $650,000 on the table.

Add it all up and this is where Williams stands, according to Schefter:

As of now, Williams owes the Redskins almost $1.9 million in fines and signing-bonus pro-ration, and he has cost himself the opportunity to earn close to another $1 million.

There was one more key point in Schefter's recap of the situation, and it's that league sources have indicated that the organization will not forgive any of the fines and also don't intend to give Williams a new contract.

So, here we are, in a spot where this saga is harming both sides in different but noticeable ways. Even with that, however, we're still unsure of when it's all going to end.
