The San Francisco 49ers got defensive end Chase Young for the bargain price of a 2024 compensatory third-round draft pick. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, that price was reportedly higher until some medical concerns scared off other bidders.

The Washington Commanders were initially seeking second- and fifth-round draft picks in exchange for Young.

"The Commanders, however, lowered their asking price for defensive end Chase Young after some teams expressed medical concerns about him, according to sources," Schefter wrote.

The 49ers ended up getting Young ahead of the trade deadline, adding to an already impressive defensive front that includes his former Ohio State teammate, Nick Bosa. Young is set to make his debut in red and gold against the Jacksonville Jaguars today.

Schefter notes that Young was not the only player the 49ers were targeting as a potential trade option.

"The 49ers went looking for big names at the NFL trade deadline, checking on the availability of Broncos cornerback Pat Surtain II, Bears cornerback Jaylon Johnson, and then-Commanders defensive end Montez Sweat, among others, sources told ESPN," Schefter reports.

While the 49ers' interest in Johnson and Sweat was already known, Schefter confirmed their inquiries about Surtain.

Coming off their bye week and losing three consecutive games, the 49ers aim to reverse their fortunes today in Jacksonville.

Breer: Steve Wilks was already on 'shaky ground' with 49ers heading into Super Bowl

By David Bonilla

While fans were clamoring for his dismissal following some disappointing playoff performances, it seemed unlikely that head coach Kyle Shanahan and the San Francisco 49ers would part ways with defensive coordinator Steve Wilks after just one season. In fact, on Tuesday, February 13, Shanahan insisted he expected all his coaches to return. A day later, the 49ers head coach jumped on a conference call with reporters and announced that he had decided to fire Wilks. "A really tough decision because it really says nothing about Steve as a man or as a football coach," Shanahan told reporters. "He's exactly what we wanted as a man. He is a great football coach. But just where we're

Will the 49ers restructure Dre Greenlaw's contract after LB's injury?

The injury to Dre Greenlaw during Super Bowl 58 dealt a significant blow to the San Francisco 49ers' defense. The impact of his absence was obvious, as evidenced by Fred Warner's emotional reaction on the sideline after his teammate and friend was carted off to the locker room. This hurts to watch so much.

Cutting Through the Noise After the 49ers' Super Bowl Loss

By John Porter
Feb 20

Since the last pass of Super Bowl LVIII (I couldn't even tell you what happened in the aftermath, nor who caught the pass, I turned off as soon as the ball hit his hands), I've surprised myself. One would anticipate that I may have gone through the seven stages usually associated with grief, particularly since it was the third heart-shattering Super Bowl loss of my fandom (I'm a UK Niner who has, in some way, managed to watch, at times excruciatingly, every down of every season since 2005). Alas, no. I'm not even stuck in denial. It happened, we lost, but for once, I accepted it. I had my moments of despair, but overall, I was quite looking forward to a long break from the game, a chance to breathe, reset, and hopefully come back next year. Then, the crushing avalanche of

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy has earned a fan in Kansas City Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. Following the Chiefs' victory over the 49ers in Super Bowl 58, Spagnuolo made sure to extend his regards to Purdy. "I just texted Brock the other day," Spagnuolo disclosed in a recent conversation with Peter Schrager on "The Season" podcast. "I tried to track down his cell number. I just wanted to tell him how much respect I have for him [and] what a terrific game he played. He's such a quality guy, strong Christian man, and I respect all of that, and I'm happy for all the success." Naturally, while Spagnuolo is content that Purdy didn't overly excel in the Super Bowl, he expressed admiration for the young quarterback, saying, "I think Brock
