Player and team had been in meetings for a while negotiating a new deal for the 25-year-old, who will be guaranteed $122.5 million, becoming the highest paid defense man in NFL history with an average annual salary of $34. million, surpassing the three-year, $95 million extension Aaron Donald signed in June 2022.

Bosa was entering the final year of his contract with the 49ers, worth $17.8 million in 2023. With a renewed contract, it tends to be an option for week 1 of the 2023 season, in a game that takes place on Sunday (10), between San Francisco and Pittsburgh Steelers. “He would have to have a beer belly and be out of shape,” Shanahan said, when asked if it’s possible Bosa won’t play Pittsburgh.

It is worth mentioning that the player had been left out of the team’s training camp and pre-season matches, right after the holdout. Now on a renewed contract, the Niners are expected to waive all fines that occurred during the athlete’s absence.

In time, Nick Bosa, 25, was named Defensive Player of the Year last season, when he recorded 18.5 sacks (NFL best), 51 tackles, two forced fumbles and 58 quarterback pressures. The defensive end is the key player in a unit that was the best defense in the league in 2022-23.
