DE Joey Bosa Signs RECORD-BREAKING Five-Year, $135M Contract Extension With Los Angeles Chargers

Joey Bosa and the LA Chargers have agreed to a five-year, $135 million dollar contract extension. This contract includes $78 million fully guaranteed at signing and $102 million in total guarantees.

Both of these guarantees are NFL records…

 In his four seasons, Bosa has tallied up 40 sacks and is averaging 0.8 sacks per game. This ranks him fourth in the NFL. Bosa has the second-highest pass rush win rate among qualified pass-rushers since the start of 2017.

Bosa gets to enter training camp for his fifth season in the NFL, with his new deal and a sense of relief. In 2019, Bosa earned his second career Pro Bowl berth in 2019, when he recorded 64 total tackles with 11.5 sacks.

This will be one less distraction, especially going into a season with the uncertainties thanks to COVID-19.
