Brian Burns comments on trades of Chase Young, Montez Sweat

Two pretty notable pass rushers were moved before Tuesday’s trade deadline hit—and neither were Brian Burns.

As expected, Carolina Panthers outside linebacker Brian Burns was not dealt prior to the 4 p.m. ET cutoff time on Tuesday. But, about 24 hours later, he did comment on a few that were—Chase Young and Montez Sweat.

“Shocked that both of them left,” he said on Wednesday. “I kinda assumed one would just, I guess, lookin’ on the business side of things. But I was shocked that both of them got traded. I think they’re in good positions, though. So, happy for them.”

The Washington Commanders began their Halloween handouts with Sweat, shipping him off to the Chicago Bears in exchange for a 2024 second-round pick (theirs, not Carolina’s). They then sent Chase Young to the San Francisco 49ers, reeling in a compensatory third-round pick for the former second overall selection.

As for Burns, who stayed put amidst some trade rumors, he’ll hopefully find himself in a good position right where he’s at.
