The San Francisco 49ers acquired Chase Young on Tuesday. In exchange, the Washington Commanders received a 2024 third round draft pick.

This was the second time that the Commanders made a trade on the trade deadline day. The team also sent fellow defensive end Montez Sweat to the Chicago Bears for a 2024 second round draft pick.

Young is getting a fresh start with this trade. If healthy, Young gives the 49ers another stud player on their defense that already includes Nick Bosa and Fred Warner.

The 24 year old Young had been a disappointment in Washington. He was their second overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The 2020 Associated Press Defensive Rookie of the Year has just one tackle in his last game with the franchise. That came in a 38-31 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

This season, Young has appeared in seven starts. He made six starts. He had 15 tackles, including six tackles for a loss and nine quarterback hits.

Young also has 5.0 sacks and one pass deflection.

The 5.0 sacks were the most since his rookie season when he had 7.5 sacks.

Over the course of his career, Young has appeared in 34 NFL games. He made 32 starts.

He has had 90 tackles, including 19 tackles for a loss and 26 quarterback hits. Young also has 14.0 sacks.

In addition, he has had six forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries. One of his fumble recoveries were returned for a touchdown.

Young also has eight pass deflections.
