Nick Bosa agrees to 5-year, $170M extension with 49ers | CBS SportsSep 07, 2023
Well, the latest news from the NFL will be that
49erspass rusher Nick Bosa agreed to a five-
year, $170 million
extensionwhich, of course, according to ESPN, makes him the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history. the league, surpassing Aaron Donald. His deal also includes more than $122 million in guarantees. Bosa was out of training camp in the final
yearof his rookie contract. He had a career-best 18 1/2 sacks last year on his way to being named the league's defensive player of the year, so some money. there for Nick Bosa, but also some money for his brother Joey Bosa on that list with 27 million, plus, take a look at the highest paid players by average annual value Aaron Donald, of course, we only talk about him, followed by TJ Watt. miles Garrett and of course Quinn and Williams also on that list let's go ahead and welcome our NFL analyst lijay doozable now liji your former defensive end uh this is some big money we're looking for here for Nick Bosa and it's kind of It feels like we've been waiting for this to happen and now the deal is done yeah Haley is surprised it's taken this long if you look at what Nick Bosa means to this team this is the number one defense in all of football and it's because of Nick Bosa just look at the trajectory of where this team is going when Nick Bosa is not in the lineup 2019 2021 2022 the
49ershave a sack total of 48 48 44.
The only gear that Nick Bosa gets hurt in 2020 that number drops significantly to just 30. So that lets you know what he means to this team. I know it right now. Javon Hargrave is screaming running around 49ers stadium right now. I couldn't be more excited because he signed with the 49ers for a chance to win a Super Bowl now that he's with the Eagles last year and he knew what that defensive line had so he thinks he has the same thing with Nick Bosa and even out season, Nick Bosa praised Javon Hargrave by saying, "I don't think people realize how well he approached this." The guy is, but now he's got Nick more on the outside, Eric Armstead on the inside, with him, this 49ers defense is going to get after people and I thought the 49ers were extremely smart and managed to do this with about a week until their first I play now for people who I don't know, Wednesday is the first day of real work for the teams as they prepare to play on Sunday, so I hope Nick Bose is in the West Coast area.
I played on this team in 2017, 2018, my last year in La Liga just know the calcium and how they practice, practice usually isn't until 12:30 and 1 o'clock so at this time if Nick Bose is in the area, you can sign that agreement, go out on the practice field and work. to potentially playing the first week against the Pittsburgh Steelers, yes, it definitely has an impact when you're not in practice and you're hanging in there, but Bosa, of course, isn't the only one he's been holding out for more money. How come this signing? How does that 170 million number play a factor for guys like Chris Jones?
So you think this now moves on to Chris Jones and most likely he won't play in the first week, they play in two days and he hasn't. I didn't sign a new contract, so now if you're Chris Jones you're saying Nick Bose is making around 34 million dollars, hmm, Aaron Donald 31.7. I feel like he should be in the $30+ million realm and supposedly the Chiefs are willing to make him the highest, second-highest paid defensive tackle, but it all comes down to the numbers, like what's guaranteed, what am I getting? Now, what will this three-year contract be like for Chris Jones, another name.
I'm looking at Brian Burns, right? This guy was there all through training camp and decided on Monday, you know, my deal's not done. I'm not going to participate in anything, so now you'd think the train of thought goes to him and says, well, if Nick is the boss. 34 million I feel like he's not 10 million dollars a year better than me. He should be making over $25-26 million, so the teammate usually always signs and that person wins first. In this situation, the Carolina Panthers and Kansas City Chiefs are probably scratching themselves. His head is right, now these players will even want more money and Bosa isn't the only one who will be paid next season as we take a look at the current salary cap the 49ers are under. in those numbers at the top blue jay 34 million for Nick Bosa 29 million for Devo Samuel the list goes on and on and on and on and on, how the hell do they manage this limit well?
This is what happens when you keep kicking the can down the road. and restructure people and it will be interesting to see how Nick Bosa's numbers come out and what his true salary cap number is because I guarantee you they mixed up some things there where he got a lot of that guaranteed and they lowered his cap number, but the 49ers are going to have to restructure. to players again next year to fit under the salary cap. The nice thing is the luxury they have is that they are still playing quarterback on their rookie contract, so they don't have to play Brock's party for potentially another year or more. two so they can keep kicking that can in the future, but eventually you know the rooster is going to come.
I'm actually going to hatch and they're going to have to pay everyone accordingly so they're doing this because you're trying to get to the Super Bowl that's what it comes down to when you have a quarterback on a rookie contract you pay so many star players as you can because eventually you're going to have to pay that quarterback, yeah I'm so glad I'm not in the front office having to sort out all that money mess. Last question, I want to ask you obviously a guy like Micah Parsons, who is competing alongside Nick Bosa, and he will also have a contract here.
I know you talked about how this affects guys right now if you're Micah Parsons, what are you saying to your agent right now? Oh, man, if I get 15 16 sacks, 34 million sounds good to me, you know, if you're Michael and Jerry. Jones already talked about this right he was telling Zach Martin when he was doing his hold like you know you have to calm down like he has to pay Micah Parsons they just called the right tackle too so Michael Parsons again every one. Player, we want everyone to get paid, but someone else's deal has nothing to do with me, so if you're micro Parsons you're looking at that 34 million because a lot of people have pegged him as the second best running back behind Nick and they both mean it with reason.
This guy has been able to do it from the linebacker position on the defensive side. He looks like he'll just be a defensive end this year, which I think is his best position in football, but if he can get over that 15-16, you know. fire Mark, go to Jerry, let me shout at you, I need some of that money too, let me save a dollar, your own son, okay, let's go ahead and take a look at the 49ers upcoming schedule again. Nick Bosa gets paid 170. New million dollar contract for him, the 49ers will start their season against the Steelers on the road, a couple other notable games there of course the Cowboys will meet in week five on Sunday Night Football and a couple of other big games on that schedule as well, so Nick Bosa will officially be sticking with the 49ers $170 million in his pocket a little longer.
