The 49ers remain in uncharted area with protective end Nick Bosa. A group that normally has its agreement extensions done prior to or early in training school is now handling a settlement that’s threatening to bleed into the routine season.
With less than 3 weeks to go till the season opener in Pittsburgh, Bosa still hasn’t reported for camp. It’s a brand-new phenomenon for the 49ers front workplace and basic supervisor John Lynch, who informed KNBR in San Francisco that while he doesn’t like the length of time the procedure has actually gone, the group and Bosa are still pursuing an option.
“Concern’s a relative word. I don’t like the situation,” Lynch stated. “Since our tenure here we haven’t had a holdout anywhere toward this magnitude. So, not something I’m comfortable with. We’re working really hard to try to change that. We’re in good communication with his reps. He’s a special player, he’s gonna get a special contract I can tell you that. But yeah, we’re getting closer and eager to bring this to a close, but I think I’ll leave it at that. We’ve talked from the beginning, Nick and myself and his representatives about ‘let’s keep this thing in house,’ and so we’ll continue to do that and just know that we’re working diligently to try to bring it to a close.”
The 49ers have till Sept. 10 to get offer done prior to the routine season opener, although Bosa would require some quantity of practice to get in playing shape and to be associated with video game preparation. A complete week of practice would indicate Bosa requires to be back by Sept. 4.
Ideally though the offer is done prior to that and the 49ers can leave the uncharted waters they’ve learnt the whole offseason.
