Nick Bosa Signs Massive Five-Year Extension With San Francisco 49ers

Nick Bosa Extension

The holdout is over as the San Francisco 49ers and defensive end Nick Bosa have agreed to terms on a five-year extension worth $170 million, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Bosa becomes not just the highest-paid defender in NFL history, but the highest-paid non-quarterback in league history. With the standoff seeming likely to extend into the regular season as Bosa had not reported to the team prior, the 49ers open the checkbook. The deal also includes $122.5 million guaranteed, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The reigning Defensive Player of the Year has had a very successful NFL career so far. Bosa has 250 pressures since entering the league and playing about three seasons in terms of snap count, per PFF. He took home Defensive Rookie of the Year honours in 2019, and has been a Pro Bowler in every season he has been healthy.

2022 saw Bosa take his play to another level, recording a career-high in sacks with 18.5, and a career-high with 90 pressures. Bosa also only missed two tackles all season, and added 30 quarterback hits and 41 hurries en route to his first Defensive Player of the Year award and First-Team All-Pro honours.

This comes just in time as it seems Bosa was willing to holdout into the regular season, and without him, the 49ers have an average defensive front at best. The 49ers are set to be strong contenders in the NFC, and now have their best player back with a nice payday.
