Joey Bosu’s delay in 2016 apparently resonated until 2020.
As the NFL prepares for a period of unprecedented chaos, unexpected losses and a potentially sharp drop in the 2021 salary cap, chargers bit the charge and made Joey Bosu the highest paid defender in NFL history with a huge five-dollar extension of $ 135 million. Together with the $ 14.36 million that Bosa was due to conclude in 2020, it is a six-year agreement with a signing value of $ 24.89 million per year.
The average defensive turnover of $ 27 million Browns Browns ends up with Myles Garrett by $ 2 million a year, leaving Bears linebacker Khalil Mack with $ 23 million a year and the Rams defense group with Aaron Donald a year at $ 22.5 million in the dust.
Despite the fact that the chargers are on the verge of a season without fans in the stands (some would say it’s no different than in any other season), they broke the bank for Bosa, which reached deep into its newcomer over a handful of relatively small issues in its predominantly a contract plate contract as the third overall choice in the proposal. This time, the Chargers would not give up $ 78 million fully guaranteed and $ 102 million in total guarantee if they did not fear a payout from Bosa or perhaps even non-participation.
Bosa has 40 career bags in 51 career games, averaging 0.78 per game. In four years, he participated in one Pro Bowl performance and missed 13 games in four seasons due to injury.
Bosa has huge potential and has sometimes had considerable production, but its sign of high water levels for disposable bags is only 12.5 – with Melvin Ingram on the other side of the line to dilute the attention that Bose may pay.
And so the deal can be characterized as nothing more than a big bang for Bosa, especially in light of the current problems absorbing chargers and the rest of the NFL. Although the final numbers will tell the whole story, in this situation, the first indications are that Bosa received every penny from the Chargers, and maybe some.
