Chase Young, EDGE | Age: 24

Although Chase Young may not be the guy that people thought he was, before the trade deadline, where he was out-performing Montez Sweat and being the star of that Washington defensive line. Young is still a very valuable player, especially as a pass-rusher. The Ohio State prodigy ranked 15th in pass rush win rate off the edge, and 18th in pressures in his first season back recovering from an ACL tear. 

Despite some hate on a very out-of-context clip where Young was jogging to the ball carrier and compounded it with a terrible high tackle attempt on a ball carrier versus the Lions in the NFC championship, Young still can be a stud in the NFL. The best part about Chase Young is that he will most likely be looking for a one-year deal or a two-year deal with an opt-out so he can cash out with a monster season.

I would expect Chase Young to net himself a one-year deal around 15 million which should be a no-brainer for the Bears. A no-risk deal with tons of upside where you add pass rush juice opposite to Montez Sweat, is a great deal.
