Joey Bosa will not report to Chargers rookie camp; Remains unsigned

Joey Bosa reminds me a lot of JJ Watt, this kid is special
Joey Bosa wants the language in his contract fixed

Joey Bosa was the third pick in the NFL Draft, but he is not happy with his contract negotiations.  The former Ohio State pass rusher is not happy about the language in his contract and is hoping the Chargers will fix it.  If they don’t he may remain unsigned and unhappy.

“Without offset language, it could unfortunately create the scenario where, as a player in that fourth year, if a player knows he has a million guaranteed from us and can go double dip and earn from another team, it actually in essence creates an incentive to get cut financially,” Chargers president of football operations John Spanos said back in June. “You can make more money getting cut.”

A couple days ago Darron Lee was signed which leaves only one or two others unsigned still.  This will be interesting to see how it turns out.
