Former second-rounder Chase Young was traded from the Washington Commanders to the San Francisco 49ers in a blockbuster trade.
According to multiple reports, the defensive end will head to the Bay Area in exchange for a third-round pick.
Young was named Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2020, but suffered a serious injury in 2021 that kept him out for most of that season and much of the 2022 season.
This move reunites him with his former teammate and reigning Defensive Player of the Year Nick Bosa on a 49ers defensive line that has become even spookier with Young’s addition.
It’s also a sign that the Commanders are pushing for a complete rebuild after trading away fellow D-lineman Montez Sweat earlier in the day.
