Before the trade deadline, John Lynch and the San Francisco 49ers made a splash with a blockbuster move.
With the clock ticking down on deadline day, the 49ers acquired edge rusher Chase Young in a blockbuster trade with the Washington Commanders, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the 49ers are reportedly sending a 2024 third round pick to Washington to land the former top draft pick.
Via @MikeGarafolo on Twitter:
Young was selected with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft. After winning Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2020, Young has racked up 14 sacks over 34 games in his campaign with the Commanders.
The former Buckeye will provide a much-needed boost alongside reigning Defensive Player of the Year Nick Bosa.
