The Dallas Cowboys are said to be swooping in to save the day as the Joey Bosa contract stalemate with the San Diego Chargers seems to not be ending anytime soon. With the defensive end expected to miss out on his entire rookie season, the Tony Romo team is anticipated to offer a max contract to the star hailed as JJ Watt 2.0. Can the remaining practices salvage the first year of the Ohio alum in the NFL?
The San Diego Chargers and Joey Bosa are poised to have an ugly divorce this offseason. Following a long and winding contract negotiations between the two parties, the defensive end might have just seen his rookie season come to an end without ever playing in the gridiron alongside other pro footballers. However, reports point to a potential solution as the Dallas Cowboys are expected to sign the rookie soon.
Rumors are rife that a Joey Bosa contract with the San Diego Chargers seems to be highly unlikely as of late. Despite their earlier negotiations, the talks appear to have turned bitter as both sides may no longer want anything to do with each other. Moreover, analysts note that the San Diego Chargers failed to do justice to Joey Bosa as they deemed the NFL team responsible for the waste of the defensive end's rookie season.
"If Joey Bosa ended his dispute tomorrow, he would barely get something from his rookie year," said an NFC exec. The official added, "But it won't end tomorrow. It could be weeks. So effectively, the Chargers threw away the rookie year of their own high draft pick."
Other execs all over the league appear to be in agreement that the San Diego Charges have made a tactical error in failing to reach a settlement with Joey Bosa. Sports analysts also point out how the NFL team missed the significance of the rookie's contract to their roster.
"I cannot stress this enough. Every team I speak to thinks the Chargers are ruining Bosa. They are laughing at the Chargers. Laughing at them," shared Mike Freeman of the Bleacher Report.
In a nutshell, the dispute between the San Diego Chargers and Joey Bosa is fairly simple. The rookie is asking to be paid in accordance with a structured contract. This requirement, as pointed out by several reporters and sources, is the standard for players who rank high in the overall draft picks. However, the San Diego Chargers refuse to budge.
"The Chargers are being more arbitrary. They are pulling numbers and contract structures out of their [expletive]. This is illogical. Makes zero sense," pointed out Freeman. He further noted, "Why would Bosa accept this? It's not just unfair, or self-destructive, it's borderline immoral."
This is where the Dallas Cowboys might come in. Jerry Jones has been nothing but fair to the contracts of his players. Hence, fans of Joey Bosa feel that a contract with the Tony Romo squad could be the best option for the team and the rookie right now. Will this happen soon?
The answer remains uncertain. At this point, all parties concerned have not released any official comment on the matter. However, some football enthusiasts feel that the Dallas Cowboys might just be able to save Joey Bosa before his rookie season crumbles to nothing.
