Chase Young Presser: I can use a lot of things as motivation; there’s a night and day difference from last season

Chase Young and other Washington Commanders speak to the media after practice

The Washington Commanders started their 3 day mandatory mini-camp today, and the return of Chase Young to team activities has gotten a lot of attention. He, along with fellow DE Montez Sweat and starting LT Charles Leno, Jr., skipped the last two rounds of OTAs, but all three of the veterans were on the field today. Young said he feels “night and day” from the last time we’ve seen him on the field, and listed his confidence, strength, everything as the reasons why. He described the workouts he did in Colorado while away from the team. Young was also asked about the Commanders declining his 5th-year option, and said he can use a lot of things for motivation.
