He was the last player to report to training camp.
It would have come as a surprise if Bosa hadn’t shown up. The new labor deal moves the deadline for losing a year of credit toward free agency from 30 days before the start of the regular season to the opening of camp.
In other words, Bosa didn’t have a choice.
Bosa is set to make $14.36 million in the final year of his rookie contract and seeking an extension. He now is scheduled to become a free agent in March.
General Manager Tom Telesco said Monday he had nothing to share contract-wise.
Bosa, the third overall pick of the 2016 draft, made 40 sacks his first four seasons.
