Chase Young Plans To Be Available For Training Camp

New Orleans Saints defensive end Chase Young (neck), who had offseason neck surgery, received a positive report from renowned specialist Dr. Robert Watkins during a checkup this week, according to a source. Young will have more tests on his neck in around six weeks, but he plans to take part in training camp this summer. The former second overall pick by the Washington Commanders in 2020 out of Ohio State won Defensive Rookie of the Year in his first season in the league, but then injuries struck. He was able to play in 16 games with Washington and the San Francisco 49ers last year, though, and finished with 7.5 sacks, the same amount he had in 2020. If the 25-year-old can just say on the field, the Saints could have a real steal on their hands on their D-line. Because of the injury risk, Young can be left to the waiver wire in IDP leagues to start the year.

Chase Young Could Be Big Addition For Saints Defense

New Orleans Saints All-Pro pass-rusher Cameron Jordan thinks the offseason addition of former first-round defensive end Chase Young "is going to be great for our defense." "We already got Carl Granderson, who's stellar these last couple of years. I think with growth him being on the opposite side when he gets the right health, physically. He's going to be another piece we can add on," Jordan said. Young was traded from the Washington Commanders to the San Francisco 49ers on Halloween last year before signing a one-year deal with the Saints in free agency this offseason. The 2020 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year had neck surgery this offseason but is expected to be ready for the start of the 2024 season. If the 25-year-old Young can get back to his rookie-year form, the Saints pass rush could be very dangerous this year.

Chase Young Expected To Miss Training Camp

Recently signed New Orleans Saints edge defender Chase Young (neck) is scheduled to undergo a neck procedure that is expected to sideline him for training camp, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. This was announced after he reached a one-year, $13 million deal with New Orleans, but the teams he spoke to apparently knew about it. Nonetheless, the Saints were comfortable with signing him under these conditions. Young, the former No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, has posted 16.5 sacks through his first 43 games with the Washington Commanders and San Francisco 49ers. With Cameron Jordan and Carl Granderson already in the edge rotation, Young has the upside to make this a strong pass-rushing unit in 2024. He is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Saints Expected To Sign Chase Young

The New Orleans Saints are expected to sign former San Francisco 49ers pass-rusher Chase Young to an undisclosed deal, according to a source. The 2020 No. 2 overall pick out of Ohio State will get a fresh start in New Orleans in 2024. Young was named the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2020 with the Washington Commanders when he had a career-high 44 tackles (32 solo), 7.5 sacks, 10 tackles for loss, 12 QB hits, four forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries (one returned for a touchdowns) in 15 starts, but he played in just 12 games in the next two seasons, which is why the Commanders moved on. The 24-year-old combined for another 7.5 sacks last year with Washington and San Fran, though, and another bounce-back year could be in store for him in the Big Easy if he's able to stay healthy.

Chase Young Expected To Visit Panthers, Saints

Free-agent pass-rusher Chase Young is expected to visit with the Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints this week, according to a source. The 2020 Defensive Rookie of the Year is still only 24 years old and is receiving interest from a handful of teams. Young, the second overall pick by the Washington Commanders in 2020 out of Ohio State, made the Pro Bowl in his first NFL season and recorded 7.5 sacks in 15 games. However, injuries limited him to a combined 12 games in 2021 and 2022 before he bounced back with 7.5 sacks in 16 games (six starts) with the Commanders and San Francisco 49ers last year. San Fran has already added two defensive linemen in free agency, so it's unlikely that Young will be returning to the Bay Area in 2024. Another year removed from injury, Young could be a sleeper defensive lineman in IDP fantasy leagues.

49ers Have Interest In Re-Signing Chase Young

Even though edge rusher Chase Young was a bit of a disappointment after the San Francisco 49ers acquired him in a deadline deal with the Washington Commanders last year, the 49ers have at least some interest in re-signing him. Young is still just 24 years old and has a great relationship with star edge rusher Nick Bosa (the two were college teammates at Ohio State). The former second overall pick by Washington in 2020 might have to settle for a one-year, prove-it deal with San Francisco or another team, but there are still enough clubs intrigued by his potential. After being dealt by Washington in 2023, Young had 10 tackles (five solo), 2.5 sacks and six QB hits in nine regular-season games for the Niners. In total last year, his 7.5 sacks matched his total from his rookie campaign in 2020, when he was named the Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Chase Young Traded To 49ers

Washington Commanders edge rusher Chase Young is being traded to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for a third-round pick. The 24-year-old was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and now finds a new home in the NFC. He won the 2020 Defensive Rookie of the Year Award with 7.5 sacks but posted just 1.5 sacks over the next two seasons due to knee injuries. He was off to a solid start this season, posting five sacks in six games. The 49ers now have a front seven consisting of Young, Arik Armstead, Javon Hargrave, Nick Bosa, Randy Gregory, Dre Greenlaw, and Fred Warner. Meanwhile, Washington appears to be looking toward the future after trading Montez Sweat and Young on the same day.

Commanders Taking Calls On Chase Young

The Washington Commanders already traded pass-rusher Montez Sweat to the Chicago Bears on Tuesday, but they may not be done with Tuesday's deadline quickly approaching at 4 pm ET. Sources are saying that the Commanders are now taking calls on former No. 2 overall pick Chase Young. Sweat was in the final year of his contract, but a trade of Young could signal that Washington is firmly tearing things down with an eye towards the future. The Commanders' defensive line has been their strength this year, but their secondary has really let them down. The 24-year-old Young was the Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2020 but then played in 12 combined games in 2021 and 2022 due to injuries. He's already up to five sacks through seven games in 2023 and is looking like the rookie version of himself, which has surely made him attractive to interested teams looking to beef up their pass rush.

Chase Young Trade To Chicago In The Works?

According to multiple reports, the Bears could be interested in acquiring Washington Commanders defensive end Chase Young. In addition to trading for the former Buckeye, the plan would be to sign him to a long-term contract, considering Chicago has plenty of cap space next season. Young, the 2020 defensive Rookie of the Year, began his career by recording 7.5 sacks in his first season in the league. However, he battled a knee injury, limiting him to just 12 games in the two seasons heading into the 2023-24 campaign. Young can be an asset for any club. But he needs to stay healthy, which has been a problem for IDP managers over the years.

Chase Young Practices In Full Thursday

Washington Commanders defensive end Chase Young (neck) was listed as a full practice participant on Thursday. It's a notable development for the former second overall pick that has been set back by injuries since winning Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2020, as he had been limited in practices since suffering a stinger in the preseason in early August. He's making progress, but the Commanders may play it safe with the 24-year-old pass-rusher and hold him out until Week 3. With that said, fantasy managers in IDP leagues shouldn't expect Young to make his 2023 debut this Sunday on the road in Denver against the Broncos.
