Washington Commanders Could Include Chase Young In Potential Trade For One Of These Two Quarterbacks

The Washington Commanders are determined to find a quarterback and are willing to do whatever it takes, including trading away their No. 2 overall pick from the 2020 NFL Draft — Chase Young.

According to Ben Standing of The Athletic, Ron Rivera has made it clear his intentions when it comes to the quarterback position: “There is urgency to make a major move, and to make it now.”

“Is there a sense of urgency?” Rivera said. “I think there always is, just because that’s the most important position on your team. … It is something we want to get right.”

“I think almost anyone on the roster is available if the result is Washington improving at quarterback,” writes Standig at The Athletic. “In [Chase] Young’s case, that would mean the Aaron Rodgers or Russell Wilson level.”


In Rivera’s two-year tenure as the Washington Football Team coach, he’s started quarterbacks Dwayne Haskins, Alex Smith, Kyle Allen, Fitzpatrick, Taylor Heinicke and Garrett Gilbert. Since 2000, the WFT has started 24 different quarterbacks.
