The Chargers and defensive end Joey Bosa reached agreement on a five-year, $135 million extension that will tie him to Los Angeles for the next six years, league sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Tuesday.
Bosa’s deal includes $78 million fully guaranteed at signing and $102 million guaranteed, according to sources, a new NFL defensive record.
Bosa reported to training camp Tuesday. He is entering the final season of his rookie contract, for which he was scheduled to earn $14.4 million.
Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said Monday that, even with the expected drop in the salary cap in 2021, the Chargers finances still align with their plans regarding contracts. Telesco otherwise declined to comment on any specific contract situations.
