Notches first sack of 2023

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-22

Bosa had three tackles (two solo), including one sack in Thursday's 30-12 win over the Giants.

Bosa also had two quarterback hits as San Francisco's pass rush overwhelmed New York's banged up offensive line and kept Daniel Jones under constant pressure. The sack was his first since Bosa notched one in Week 17 of last season to bolster his 2022 sack total to 18.5. He failed to record a sack in three playoff games or the first two games of the 2023 campaign.

Full go for Week 2

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-11

Head coach Kyle Shanahan announced that Bosa will be a full go for Week 2, Lindsey Pallares of the 49ers' official site reports.

Bosa played just 35 snaps during Sunday's 30-7 win against the Steelers but is expected to resume his normal workload for the team's Week 2 matchup against the Rams. The 2019 first-round pick was still working his way back after he spent the majority of the offseason away from the team due to a contract holdout but is now ready to go for the rest of the season.

Cleared for Week 1 action

Bosa will play in Sunday's game against Pittsburgh, with coach Kyle Shanahan saying Friday that the defensive end looks "ready to go," Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Bosa resumed practicing Thursday after a contract dispute kept him away from the team for all of training camp and the preseason. He's now the highest-paid non-QB in NFL history and seems to have stayed in good shape while he was away from the team. It is possible he plays a few less snaps than usual, but Bosa figures to start and stay on the field for most of the game this Sunday in Pittsburgh.

Returns to practice after new deal

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-07

Bosa rejoined the 49ers for practice Thursday after being reinstated from the reserve/did not report list, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Bosa had been holding out from the 49ers throughout training camp and the preseason and then missed the team's first Week 1 practice Wednesday before coming to terms with San Francisco on a five-year, $170 million contract extension. Even though he remained away from the team for the past six weeks while seeking the richest deal for a defensive player in NFL history, Bosa seemed to keep himself in game shape. Per Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, Bosa looked to be in "top physical condition" Thursday, even though he was expected to go through no more than a limited day of practice while getting acclimated to the daily football training routine. The 49ers still plan to have the star defensive end suit up Sunday against the Steelers, and he could end up taking on something close to his normal workload if he's able to quell any remaining concerns the coaching staff might have about his conditioning following Friday's practice.

Inks record deal

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-06

Bosa and the 49ers have agreed to a five-year, $170 million contract extension, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

While full details aren't initially available, it sounds like Bosa will break most significant records for non-QB contracts. Micah Parsons or Justin Jefferson might challenge that within the next year or two, but Bosa has a solid case as the most valuable non-QB in the league, coming off a 2022 season in which he led the NFL in sacks (18.5), knockdowns (28) and pressures (53) while serving as the most important player on the league's best defense. With his lengthy contract dispute ending four days before San Francisco's season opener, Bosa should be available Sunday in Pittsburgh.

Still away from team

Bosa (contract dispute) has still not reported to team facilities Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Bosa continues to seek a new contract from the 49ers, and it looks like the holdout he began late July will continue into the regular season. The star defensive end would be in line to earn a $17.85 million salary in 2023 due to San Francisco exercising his fifth-year option, but he's instead vying for a long-term extension. If Bosa doesn't suit up Week 1 versus the Steelers, Clelin Ferrell will likely step into a starting role across from Drake Jackson.

Remains without contract

Head coach Kyle Shanahan is hopeful a deal between Bosa (contract dispute) and the 49ers will be "done soon," Clayton Holloway of NFL Network reports.

Shanahan also indicated he expected to Bosa to be signed around this time, so it is unclear how sincere his optimism is. The star defensive end remains on the 49ers' reserve/did not report list as Week 1 gets closer. He has been the linchpin of San Francisco's defense over the previous two seasons, accumulating a remarkable 34 sacks in 33 games. Clelin Ferrell would be in line to fill in for him opposite Drake Jackson should he ultimately not be ready to go when the season kicks off.

Goes on reserve/did not report list

The 49ers placed Bosa (contract dispute) on the reserve/did not report list Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

This move comes as no surprise considering Bosa didn't show up with his fellow San Francisco veterans to training camp Tuesday. He'll likely remain away from the team until he reaches an agreement on a new contract. The linchpin of the 49ers defense is coming off a whopping 34 sacks in 33 games over the last two seasons.

Holding out

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-07-25

Bosa did not report for camp Tuesday as he continues his contract dispute with the 49ers, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 25-year-old is coming off an 18.5 sack season where he led the 49ers to having the best defense in the NFL on a points allowed per game basis (17.2). Bosa has yet to agree to his second contract with San Francisco and general manager John Lynch told reporters he doesn't expect The 2022 NFL Defensive Player of the Year to report to camp without a new deal.
