Based on Bosa’s production in the last two seasons, the record contract is money well spent. After suffering an ACL tear in Week 2 of the 2020 season, Bosa has been on an absolute tear on the field, racking up 34 sacks, 40 tackles for loss and six forced fumbles over the last two years. He earned his first All-Pro selection to go along with his DPOY honor in 2022, setting up for an important period in which Bosa could capitalize on his rise.
San Francisco doesn’t tend to pay everyone important to stick around, but Bosa was never a question for this team. The 49ers have relied significantly on their defense during their run of success under Shanahan and general manager John Lynch, and Bosa is their best defender. The only remaining question concerned when they might get a deal done.
We finally have an answer. Now, Bosa has to get ready to hit the field for the 49ers in a short amount of time.
