Bolts Extend Bosa; 5 years, $135M, Sources Say

The Chargers and defensive end Joey Bosa reached an agreement on an extension Tuesday, with league sources telling ESPN's Adam Schefter it's a five-year, $135 million deal that will keep Bosa in Los Angeles for the next six seasons.

Sources said the deal includes $78 million guaranteed at signing and $102 million guaranteed, a record for a defensive player. The Chargers announced the agreement but not the terms.

Bosa's extension also amounts to the largest contract ever awarded by the Chargers and is the first contract to reach $100 million in franchise history.

Bosa reported to training camp Tuesday but, in a short video published by the Chargers, displayed no hints that a deal was close and said only, "I made it," as he walked by the camera.

The third overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft, Bosa is entering the final season of his rookie contract. He is scheduled to earn $14.4 million.
