Chase Young Explains Immediate Difference At San Francisco 49ers Just Six Days After Leaving Washington

Chase Young, former Washington Commanders defensive end, recently joined the San Francisco 49ers following a trade on October 31.

The 24-year-old was the second overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and moved to the 49ers with the team sending a third-round pick in the trade.

Despite his early success, the Commanders didn't pick up Young's fifth-year option, making the trade not entirely unexpected.

Young had an injury-limited impact in recent seasons but is seen as a potential game-changer for the 49ers.

The 49ers were on a three-game losing streak before a bye week, and Young was set to make his debut against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Young spoke to reporters in a press conference to discuss his transition to the 49ers.

He pointed out significant differences he noticed after joining the 49ers, particularly in team culture and attention to detail.

Young highlighted the positive spirit among players and coaches, comparing it to the atmosphere he experienced at Ohio State, where winning was expected.

He expressed his excitement and gratitude for the opportunity to be with the 49ers.

Young's goal is to help improve the 49ers' performance following their recent losses and contribute to the team's success.
