3. Chase Young, Commanders

Another popular trade candidate is Chase Young of the Washington Commanders. It seems as though Young's name has been in trade rumors for a while now, as the beginning of his career hasn't gone quite as planned due to injuries, and the fact that Washington declined his fifth-year option makes things muddy.

With the facts that we have, it doesn't appear as though the Commanders are going to keep Young around long-term, but instead will try to get what they can for him in a trade. Even though he has yet to truly bust loose on a consistent basis, Young could still net the Commanders a hefty return.

Would the Raiders be willing to part with something like a second-round pick, and maybe then some? If they did so, they would have to no, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that they'd be able to extend Young. And again, this is a guy who has 12.5 career sacks, with 7.5 of them coming as a rookie back in 2020. Based on name alone, Young could require a larger-than-life package in order for a team to land him.

But, then again, I could be wrong and the Commanders could surprise us based on a market that might not want to sacrifice much for an unproven player.
