San Diego (CBS HOUSTON) – The San Diego Chargers have released a statement on first round pick Joey Bosa and the former Ohio State Buckeyes contract situation.
“We gave Joey’s representatives our best offer last night, which was rejected today,” the Chargers said in a statement. “The offer that we extended was for Joey to contribute during all 16 games and beyond. Joey’s ability to contribute for an entire rookie season has now been jeopardized by the valuable time he has missed with his coaches and his teammates. Since Joey will not report at this time, his ability to produce not just early in the season, but throughout the entire season, has been negatively impacted.”
If Bosa isn’t signed by week 12 of the season with the Chargers, he would re-enter the NFL draft in 2017.
