Chargers say they would welcome Joey Bosa if he signed contract
One of the big questions about the Joey Bosa holdout has been how his would-be Chargers teammates will react to him if he ever does sign. Those in the locker room contend, however, that this won’t be an issue.
“We all want him here. When he is here, he is one of us,” coach Mike McCoy said, via Jeremy Bergman of NFL Media. “It’s the business side of it. We can’t wait for him to be here and help us win football games this year. … I promise you he’s working his tail off wherever he is. He’s a very talented player.”
Tight end Antonio Gates, meanwhile, said the team would be accepting of Bosa as soon as he set foot in the locker room.
Antonio Gates said Joey Bosa will be "welcomed with open arms" by Chargers players. Said it's a cardinal rule: Bolts support each other.

Things have gone very bad very publicly for Bosa and the Chargers, but it sounds like the players will at least be welcoming of Bosa – assuming he signs, that is.
