Washington signed No. 2 overall pick Chase Young to a four-year, $34.56 million deal with a $22.697 million signing bonus, according to multiple reports on Thursday.
The 21-year-old pass rusher is packed with potential, coach Ron Rivera said, comparing the Ohio State standout to Julius Peppers and Von Miller. Young is one of five first-round picks on Washington’s defensive line depth chart.
Young posted a picture Thursday morning signing his contract with the message, “Time to leave my legacy.”
First overall pick Joe Burrow, the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback from LSU, has not signed his contract with the Cincinnati Bengals.
The No. 3 pick, cornerback Jeff Okudah, signed with the Detroit Lions.
Young had 16.5 sacks last season at Ohio State and recorded 30.5 sacks in three seasons with the Buckeyes.
