Junkies question Commanders’ Chase Young choice to not attend OTAs
Chase Young being absent certainly brought out the energy from the Sports Junkies.
Wednesday, the Junkies (106.7 The Fan), as they often do, brought their true feelings and questions responding to the fact that again Chase Young had chosen to not participate in the voluntary OTAs.

Here are some of the more memorable moments of the segment from John Cakes Auville (JA), Jason Bishop (JB), Eric Bickel (EB) and John-Paul Flaim (JPF).
JB: “Chase is preoccupied. He doesn’t love being here. He doesn’t like hanging out with the other defensive linemen. He doesn’t feel like he is part of the team. That’s because of his own decisions.”
JA: “He is sulking about the team not picking up his 5th-year option. I know it’s voluntary, but it is also a bad look. It’s also a bad look to all the other teams who could employ him in the future.”
JPF: “Bingo. They don’t want him; he doesn’t want to go to anything voluntary.”
EB: “Ok, it is voluntary. But you are now really putting pressure on yourself. It’s put up or shut up. I just question, Does Chase love football? Does he love being a part of this team? Does he want to be great?”
JA: “I also question his inner circle. Who is advising him to skip OTAs? Is it his decision? Is it people in his ear saying, ‘You shouldn’t go to OTAs; they didn’t offer you the 5th-year option.’ ”
EB: “It pains me to say this because he is local, and we all root for him. When he was a superstar at Ohio State and was drafted 2nd overall, he had arrived. Ok, you got some money, but you haven’t really arrived yet until you can do it at this level. He had 7.5 sacks his first year, but ain’t nobody going to the Hall of Fame with only 7.5 sacks. He strikes me as a guy who thinks he has arrived.”
JB: “He is immature. He has a high immaturity level, and that is hurting him big time.”
