The San Francisco 49ers have made a notable acquisition, trading for Washington Commanders’ defensive end Chase Young. According to reports, the 49ers are sending a 2024 third-round pick to Washington in exchange for the former No. 2 overall pick.

This move comes as the Commanders engage in their second trade, having recently sent Montez Sweat to the Chicago Bears. The addition of Young is seen as a significant boost for the 49ers, who were also reportedly interested in the services of Bears cornerback Jaylon Johnson.
