49ers bold trade No. 2: Chase Young to San Francisco
A bold trade doesn't exactly have to be San Francisco trading away player assets in blockbuster fashion.
No, the 49ers could look to add talent, too.
Washington Commanders edge Chase Young is in a similar boat as Javon Kinlaw in that the former first-round pick won't have his fifth-year option picked up and has endured plenty of injuries that cut into what was otherwise supposed to be a promising career. Perhaps a change of scenery is needed for both players.
With the Commanders no longer owned by Dan Snyder, a known enemy of Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan, a trade between these two teams for Young should be relatively easy. Plus, considering Young's injury history, San Francisco would be able to give up a couple of mid-round draft picks while stockpiling an already potent pass rush that still needs a No. 2 pass-rusher opposite Nick Bosa.
Young, who played alongside Bosa at Ohio State, could be a quality one-year rental at a post-trade cost of just over $5.3 million to the 49ers.
