The Commanders have traded Chase Young to the Niners trade to the Bears, Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer reports.
This marks San Francisco’s third high-profile defensive line addition this year. The team gave Javon Hargrave a big-ticket deal in March, and the Broncos sent over Randy Gregory a few weeks ago. After two sluggish defensive outings, the 49ers are not stopping there. Barely an hour before the trade deadline, Young will follow Sweat out of Washington.
Young will fetch a 2024 third-round pick from the 49ers, ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweets. The Bears sent the Commanders a second-rounder for Sweat. This will reunite Young with former Ohio State teammate Nick Bosa and add to one of the most star-studded defensive lines in recent NFL history.
