Chargers go public with Joey Bosa contract stalemate, no deal close
The stalemate between the San Diego Chargers and top pick Joey Bosa has gone very public and has the potential to get very ugly.
Bosa turned down the latest offer from the Chargers, with the two sides “nowhere,” according to Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Chargers proposed to Joey Bosa what they made clear is their best offer, source says. It was declined. Offer pulled. Two sides are nowhere.

The Chargers quickly released a statement that essentially threw Bosa under the bus big time.

Bosa certainly won’t be ready for the season now, and this has grown downright toxic. The team clearly feels they’ve given Bosa more than a fair offer, while Bosa reportedly feels that he’s been disrespected by the Chargers. No end appears to be in sight, and neither party, particularly Bosa, seems to be doing themselves any favors.
