Cheryl Bosa, the mother of Chargers first-round DE Joey Bosa, mentioned that she wishes they “pulled an Eli Manning on draft day.”
“It bums me out for him so much,” she wrote on Facebook, via SDBoltReport.com. “Wish we pulled an Eli Manning on draft day.”
- Alex Marvez points out Bosa comes from a rich family, so there isn’t a lot of immediate pressure for him to give in on his contract demands.
- According to Mike Florio, the two sides haven’t spoken to one another since July 28.
- The Chargers will be able to trade Bosa as of Tuesday. However, a source tells Florio that it’s “highly unlikely” any team retained enough rookie pool space to accommodate Bosa’s contract in 2016 in a potential trade.
