49ers Sign Nick Bosa

Done deal. On Thursday, the 49ers reached agreement with No. 2 overall pick Nick Bosa, as Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets. The club also inked second-round pick Deebo Samuel, a wide receiver out of South Carolina.

With that, the 49ers have avoided unnecessary drama and another Bosa holdout in the NFL. Per the terms of his slot, the Ohio State defensive end will earn $33.55MM over the course of his four-year deal. After that, the Niners will hold a fifth-year option on his deal, since Bosa is a first-round pick.

Bosa might have been one of the safest best bets in this draft. The 49ers have not had an edge rusher record a seven sacks in a season since Aldon Smith in 2013, but they now have a strong pass rush featuring Bosa, Dee Ford and three first-round interior rushers in Arik ArmsteadDeForest BucknerSolomon Thomas.

    4 years from now he will hold out demanding more money than the 5th year option.

      Hopefully he kills it for 4 years and deserves to renegotiate. It’s a win win.

    Aldon went from recording 7 sacks a season to recording 7 arrests a season.

    9ers are poised to make a great run this year providing they stay healthy. The only competition in that division is with the Rams and if TGIII doesn’t show up the division is theirs for the taking!

    Excellent! Finally! Way to go Jed/Lynch/Bosa. Now we are ready for some fine defensive action. We now have the defensive talent to make some noise in the NFCW. That D line is stacked! Is Saleh ready to put it all together? Perhaps create a few more turnovers this year? Can’t wait to see it unfold.

    9ers will be smart to use him for 4 years and then the moment he screams renegotiate, trade him for draft picks, draft another player who doesn’t understand what the words “contract & options” mean and begin the process again. 9ers get 4 years of play for an agreed to price.
