We discuss whether Chase Young solves the 49ers problems defensively.

The San Francisco 49ers were active at the trade deadline once again, acquiring defensive end Chase Young from the Washington Commanders for a 2024 third-round compensatory pick.

However, does the move for Chase Young solve the 49ers problems defensively?

In our latest podcast episode, we discussed the 49ers’ issues on the defensive side of the ball, looking at what needs to improve, and how Chase Young fills into the fold.
