The Chase Young Trade Proves the 49ers Grasp the Importance of This Season

While the NFL trade deadline doesn’t quite pack the punch of some other leagues’, some deals did break on Tuesday afternoon.Chase Young was one of those players on the move, as he crossed the country from Washington, D.C., to San Francisco. The young defensive lineman for the Washington Commanders will now have a chance to play for a legitimate contender after three-plus years in the nation’s capital.

He’s capable of generating plenty of pressure, even if the sacks aren’t there. This year alone, for example, he’s pressured the opposing QB 18 times. When you place that alongside Bosa, opposing defenses will have to pick their poison.Add some capable run-stopping ability into the mix and San Francisco could be a reasonable place for Young to land. He doesn’t have to be a star in the Bay Area. To some extent, he can play his game without the pressure of being ‘the man.
