Chase Young is doubling down on his desire to go after and get Tom Brady.
The WFT defensive end said on Sunday night that he wanted Bucs QB Brady — even if some tried to turn it into bulletin board material.
After Sunday’s NFC East title-clinching win at Philadelphia, Young was caught on camera saying, “Tom Brady, Tom Brady, I’m coming! I want Tom! I want Tom.”
“I play ball,” Young said yesterday. “I’m excited to go against the best. The media, their job is to stir it up. If you know me, I’m excited for every game. Tom Brady, you think I’m not excited to play against the GOAT? You trippin’. I’m not going to apologize for saying I want Tom. No, I want every quarterback I play against.”
Young will get his chance against Brady when Washington (7-9) hosts the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (11-5) on Saturday night. Young, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft, has recorded 7.5 sacks and a team-high four forced fumbles. He has returned one fumble for a touchdown. Young ranks seventh with a 22.5% pass rush win rate off the edge, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. And, in the past seven games, he’s second at 26.9%.
