The situation that former Ohio State defensive lineman Joey Bosa is involved in has now forced another Bosa to express some interesting thoughts on the (lack of) negotiation.
Okay, this is getting to the point where the phrase “Come on man!” is definitely needed. Joey Bosa is still not signed and there is not any indication that will change soon.
With no deal in place yet, Bosa’s mom, Cheryl Bosa, expressed her opinion on the Bosa/San Diego Chargers negotiation online. Bosa is in the top professional sports league for football in the world. His mom’s opinion is not going to help his negotiation one bit!
Via the popular social media website Facebook, Bosa’s mom posted a very interesting comment. As she did, the comment was a shot to the Chargers’ organization.

"It bums me out for him so much. Wish we pulled an Eli Manning on draft day."
The last time a player forced his way to a specific team during the NFL Draft was in fact Manning in 2004. Manning did not want to go to San Diego for some reason, but they drafted him anyways first overall.
However, not long into the draft Manning was able to force his way to the New York Giants in a blockbuster trade. In return, San Diego acquired quarterback Philip Rivers, who was drafted fourth overall along with multiple draft picks.
The 2004 QB class in the draft is one of the best of all-time. It was known prior to the beginning of the draft that Manning did not want to head to southern California.

That was not the same case with Bosa. Had the former Ohio State player actually wanted a trade should San Diego draft him, then he should have made that crystal clear.
Besides, Manning was by many thought of as the top quarterback in that year’s draft. Bosa is a good player but he is no Manning. Regardless of the difference of position, not just anyone can force their way from a specific organization.
None of the other Ohio State draftees had the issues that Bosa is still facing. Instead, those former Ohio State players are now in training camps preparing for their first preseason games as professionals.
Given that there is a slotted amount of money now for each draft pick, the issues are not the total amount of money in the contract. Instead, the issues are more language related as to how/when he is paid.
As mentioned earlier, there is no conversation between the two parties and the more this lingers, the worse it looks for Bosa. He is acting like he is entitled to various specifics when in fact, Bosa has not done anything yet to justify anything else.
When is the Ohio State product going to be on the field? Who knows. Both parties have a responsibility to get the contract done, but ultimately it all falls back on Bosa.
