The Oct. 31 NFL trade deadline came and went, and multiple teams orchestrated deals to either strengthen their roster for a playoff-push or obtain draft capital for the future.
Tuesday’s blockbuster trade involved the Washington Commanders dealing edge rusher Chase Young to the San Francisco 49ers for a conditional third-round pick. The 24-year-old’s pass-rushing ability will almost certainly bolster the 49ers defensive line, which also includes Young’s former Ohio State teammate Nick Bosa.
The deadline action also included another Commanders’ deal that shipped defensive end Montez Sweat to the Chicago Bears, as well as a variety of other trades that sent shock waves through social media.
