    No details on final contract yet. My guess is they'll keep that pretty quiet.

    At first, I was unsure about this pick, but since the ChairCrusher has
    gone on & on about Bosa, now I'm really excited to see what he can do.

    Should we put up a price alert for super bowl tickets, or am I jumping the gun?

    It looks like the Chargers improved on their "final" offer.....

    Compromise: Chargers got offset language; Bosa got a $17 million signing bonus, roster bonuses to front 2017, '18 and '19 (better cashflow).

    The deal the Chargers settled on with Bosa is what they should have come with months ago. Ayayayayay. Glad it's done.

    Chargers sweeten language of training-camp roster bonuses, signing bonus payout to get deal done

    The Chargers and defensive end Joey Bosa finally found a middle ground. In the grand scheme of things, it wasn’t much. For Bosa and the Chargers, it was everything.

    Per a league source with knowledge of the situation, the kicker came from the team’s willingness to apply language that makes it easier for Bosa to earn $6.5 million in guaranteed training-camp roster bonuses. Specifically, he gets the training-camp roster bonuses if he’s on any type of “active” list, including the non-football injury or non-football illness list.

    Training-camp roster bonuses have become an alternative to the removal of offset language from a player’s guaranteed money at the top of the draft. Multiple players, however, have language in their contracts that allow the roster bonuses to not be paid if the player is on the NFI list. For example, Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan lost $1.7 million this year because of a knee injury that caused him to land on the non-football injury list. Other players have a similar term in their contracts.

    Bosa doesn’t, which ensures he’ll get the training-camp roster bonuses unless he’s on a “reserve” list when the money comes due.

    Also, the Chargers altered the payout schedule of the signing bonus in 2016. He still gets 85 percent this year and 15 percent next year, but Bosa gets more of the 85 percent up front. Although the specifics aren’t yet known, Bosa gets a greater percentage of the bonus payout this year than the last four No. 1 overall picks did.

    Finally, the Chargers didn’t take a penny off the table, despite last week’s vow to do so.

    So the deal is done and Bosa is a Charger and we’ll all soon forget the holdout ever happened. Until the next time a Chargers player holds out and the long list of other Chargers is rattled off, with Bosa’s name as the most recent. Other than, you know, the next guy holding out.

    This is true, but what's interesting is it sounds like they roundabout-ed Tom Condon in the process (and maybe I'm just petty like that, but it's almost worth the drama for that alone). Once the team took the hard line of threatening to pull the offer on the table, CAA (one could safely assume at Bosa's behest) swapped out negotiators:
    And the Chargers were then dealing with Todd France as opposed to Brian Ayrault. Lo and behold... negotiations restarted.

    Both sides made concessions here, but a lot of what the media is touting out makes it sound like a bigger win for Bosa's camp than it really is. The improved cash-flow is definitely a win, but that's also coming in later years (he's not netting any more money than he would have under the previous contract offer) and in the Chargers' "alleged" final offer (prior to this getting done), the improved offer they made over the initial 55/45 payout split, would have paid Bosa the highest upfront signing bonus payout in team history to begin with. And the split payout isn't as rare as people make it out to be, Rivers took a 75/25 split on his most recent signing bonus that came with his last extension.

    I think the main point here was that the Chargers "final" offer wasn't that final. They did improve the terms, so in that sense, Bosa did "win" the argument.

    I guess ChainCracker is too upset to type. Maybe we found his kryptonite?

    I heard HPV



    p.s. I do think that to break the tension, Bosa should do that press conference in an Eli jersey...
    just to show that he has a sense of humor about mom's comments. [not serious, btw]
