The expectation of a fresh contract for Nick Bosa has been growing steadily over time, but as of now, no accord has been struck, casting doubt on whether a deal will be concluded prior to the commencement of the regular season
At a Wednesday press conference, head coach Kyle Shanahan conceded that he thought a contract extension would come probably at this time, looking at the history of those things.” Shanahan said that the two sides are working “tirelessly” to bridge the remaining gaps and he said the team is not considering trading Bosa should they find that it is impossible to find common ground with their star edge rusher.
“No. I feel pretty strongly and I think everyone would agree with that,” Shanahan said, via Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News.
It’s hard to imagine that too many people in the organization would prefer trading Bosa to having him on the field, but it’s also hard to imagine questions about that possibility going away as long as the impasse continues.
