Redskins’ Trent Williams says refs insulted him on the field

Trash-talk between players is commonplace in football. But … from the referees?

Redskins offensive lineman Trent Williams complained after his team’s 24-16 loss to the Eagles on Sunday, that the officials who worked the game were running their mouths. is reporting that the league is looking into the matter.

"I just don’t think there’s no room for you to have to take that from the team and the refs," Williams said. "I think it’s very unprofessional and it sucks. I’m at a loss for words. You never expect that as a player going into a game to have to beef with the refs also."

Fellow Redskins offensive lineman Kory Lichtensteiger confirmed Williams statement.

"That’s exactly what Mr. Umpire said," Lichtensteiger said. "He walked in between me and Trent when he said it."

If this is true, that’s just … nuts.
