Update: The Patriots are calling about Young
The Patriots have gotten calls about some of their expected trade candidates like Josh Uche and Zeke Elliott, per sources.— Jeff Howe (@jeffphowe) October 31, 2023
They've also made calls. They've checked in on the price for Commanders DE Chase Young and could be players for the star pass rusher.
The Washington Commanders made their first trade of the day, and they might not be done yet. DE Montez Sweat was reportedly traded to the Chicago Bears for their 2024 second round pick. There were reports that Washington preferred to keep Sweat and trade Chase Young after the trade news broke, but they got a better offer for Sweat.
Many people thought Washington could trade one of their starting DEs, and signing or franchise tagging the other. Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Commanders are still taking calls about trading for Chase Young. They were looking for a 2nd round pick at a minimum, but it doesn’t sound like that asking price would be met.
