Bosa missed much of the 2018 season, but this was still an easy decision for the Chargers as Bosa has recorded 28.5 career sacks in 35 games.
The fifth-year option is worth $17.128 million for Bosa and becomes fully guaranteed at the start of the 2020 league year.
It’s worth mentioning the fifth-year option is guaranteed for injury only and won’t prevent the two parties from working on an extension in the next year or so.
Bosa, 23, is a former first-round pick of the Chargers back in 2016. He’s entering the fourth year of his four-year, $25.8 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $720,000 over the final year of the agreement.
In 2018, Bosa appeared in seven games for the Chargers and recorded 23 tackles, 5.5 sacks and a fumble recovery.
