Joey Bosa and the Los Angeles Chargers have consented to a five-year contract extension worth $135 million, as indicated by various reports.
The Chargers later affirmed the agreement augmentation, yet not the terms of the deal.
The augmentation is a record for a NFL defensive player, obscuring the five-year, $125 million deal that Myles Garrett signed with the Cleveland Browns under about fourteen days prior.
ESPN was the first to report the Bosa augmentation, which ties the two-time Pro Bowl defensive and 2016 NFL defensive rookie of the year to the Chargers for the next six seasons.
Bosa recorded 11.5 sacks during the 2019 season, only one sack short of his career high of 12.5 registered in 2017. Bosa was the third overall selection in the 2016 NFL draft.
