    joey bosa also just said this:

    Bosa said he thinks his holdout as a rookie played a part in his new contract coming together quicker. Said he and the team didn't want to "butt heads."

    Bosa also said his holdout as a rookie indicated to the team that he knows his wroth. Added that he never wanted to go anywhere else and wanted to stay with the Chargers
    I do think that was a big part of it. fans were saying just give bosa a blank check and that's basically what they did. they didnt want any part of another bosa hold out, they need him badly. it's not a team frinedly contract by any means but they did what they had to do to keep him, simple as that.

    is he fully ready right now? from what i have read he is not. not all of those injuries are the same for everyone. Forrest lamp suffered a similar injury and it took him 2 years to get back to 100%.

    just saying man. I'm sure he will be ready to go but will he feel comfortable with it? will it affect his game? we will see.

    The Chargers already paid him and left very little in guarantees. He's the 35th highest paid edge rusher from here on and that number only goes down for 6 years....while the salary cap is supposed to significantly increase.

    Yes Baph, zero shot. I can't believe you don't see the huge red flag.
    look at the underlined and please explain to me why you think that is? Do you think COVID is going away? Do you think teams are going to let fans fill their stadiums? Do you think there will be no revenue loss?

    the cap is likely going down next season significantly, at the very least staying the same. that we do know.

    Something to monitor: The salary cap in 2021 could potentially take a massive hit due to COVID-19. "The various estimates I've gotten from executives to owners is that the cap could be down anywhere $30M to $80M in 2021" —
    @AdamSchefter
    like i said before, if he wants a better contract in 2024, that means he's still dominating and one of the best edge defenders in the league. you said before that he wouldn't try as hard because he already got paid most of his money. one thing is for sure....... if he doesn't give it his all or he injures himself like you are suggesting, he isn't getting another huge payday like this.

    if the dude dominates and wants a newly revised contract in 2024, he would have the leverage to do it. no matter what the contract details are that would be the case. that will also depend on the salary cap situation at the time which is anyone's guess right now.

    BTWremont Jones proved to be a better pick than Tillery.
    Malik Reed, Justin Hollins, and Jeremiah Attaochu all showed some promise last season and with the addition of McTelvin Agim the Broncos should have the most quality dept in the league!

    Unless Walker makes a huge jump, he may find himself without a job.

    Tillery was terrible in his rookie season (much like melvin gordon was) even though he started to improve at the end. we will see what happens going forward but the chargers also upgraded their DL as well. are you sold that chubb is going to hit the ground running on that newly reconstructed knee? is it even 100% healthy yet?

    "Bradley Chubb believes he'll be ready to destroy quarterbacks when the NFL season opens" meaning, he isn't 100% yet and being "ready" week 1 doesn't mean he will be 100% then, either.

    Good move by the chargers, Herbert is on a rookie contract for the next 5, who better to lock up in the meantime.

    I’m very confident Denver’s offensive line will be extremely strong in the middle with Risner, Cushenberry, and Glasgow with bad ass Netane Muti (Charles from RDR2) backing them up.

    However at tackle, I’m not sure Bolles, James and Wilkenson will find an answer for Bosa between the three of them.

    Two can’t stay healthy and the other may be too stupid to even know when he’s hurt! Lol

    Seriously I think Bolles will turn some heads but it’ll be fun to watch!
    the chargers OL is in a similar situation. the middle to the right side of the line is now very solid. with Pouncey, Trai Turner, and bryan bulaga. but they are very iffy at LT, it's by far the weak spot on the entire offense, Morso than even QB IMO

    I don't know, but it sure looks like this contract will have zero shot of playing out. He had less leverage as a Rookie when he held out so late into August. I have hard time believing this guy will accept his annual salary as structured. The Chargers just gave him a huge check for games already played.
    It looks like it's totally up to Bosa if he wants to continue to be the 35th highest paid DE from now on.

    Great player, even better negotiator.

    Bosa now owns the Chargers lol.

    He is a great player and the Chargers had to lock him up, I just think on the surface it looks like the guaranteed portion was structured poorly for the Chargers.

    But like I said, if the escalators are easily attainable it's not an issue.
    In my opinion, his style will not take any more toll on his body than any other player at the position. I'm not saying the contract is great for the chargers, they did what they had to do to keep him.

    so much for the chargers being cheapskates, I'm pretty sure that's the richest contract in NFL history for a defensive player. gonna need that defense intact and dominating if they want to comp[ete in this division.

    I know......somewhere in colorado, melvin Gordon is sobbing asking the lord why oh why didn't he get a piece of that bag. poor lil fella!
    Good move! Now that you ain’t paying a QB big money Lock up your best players.
