With Lamar Jackson retained for the 2023 season, the Baltimore Ravens offense is poised to present significant challenges in the upcoming NFL season. Nevertheless, it’s evident that the team could benefit from bolstering their defensive capabilities.
While the Ravens boast a strong pass rush, an additional edge rusher could be a valuable addition. ESPN’s Seth Walder suggests that Chase Young could be a suitable candidate to fill this role.
Potential Ravens-Commanders Trade for Chase Young
Walder proposes a potential trade arrangement between the Baltimore Ravens and the Washington Commanders, enabling the Ravens to acquire former Defensive Rookie of the Year, Chase Young.

The Washington Commanders are set to acquire a third-round pick in the 2024 draft along with a fifth-round pick in the same year.
Walder emphasizes that Young’s prowess in defeating blocks and generating pressure makes him an appealing prospect for the Ravens. Presently, the Ravens’ edge rusher depth chart is occupied by Tyus Bowser, Odafe Oweh, and David Obajo. Adding Young would notably enhance the team’s capabilities in this aspect.
However, there is a certain degree of risk for the Ravens due to concerns about Young’s health. Despite an impressive rookie season, Young has only participated in a combined total of 12 games over the past two years. Nevertheless, if he manages to maintain his health, he could potentially be a game-changing asset for the Ravens.
On the other side, the Commanders could strategically benefit from trading Young at this juncture. Given that Jonathan Allen and Daron Payne have secured their financial deals, Young might face uncertainty regarding his long-term future with the Washington team. Young, a standout from Ohio State, is already in the final year of his rookie contract and might opt for free agency next summer, leaving the Commanders without compensation. Although Young’s trade market value is not currently at its peak, this moment could present an opportune window for the Commanders to extract value from the situation.
