Joey Bosa: “It’s amazing” to have Khalil Mack as a teammate

USA Today

Chargers outside linebacker Joey Bosa couldn’t be happier to have Khalil Mack on the other side of the line.

“It’s amazing. Just to have another guy like that to lean on, to look at,” Bosa said of Mack. “He’s great to talk to. Along with that, he’s obviously an unbelievable player, so having a guy like that on the other side is going to be really fun.”

Bosa said he has long looked up to Mack and thinks he’s going to be a great teammate.

“He’s the guy that I feel like, early on, he was one of the guys I looked at and was like, ‘Dang, I have to compare to these guys? I can’t do that.’ But, obviously, I’ve really worked hard to kind of get to that point,” Bosa said. “I think we complement each other really well. We rush really differently, so we’ve been bouncing ideas off of each other, just talking technique because we really have two pretty distinct styles of rushing. Obviously, we’re not going to totally switch up what we do, but if we could learn something here and there from each other — just a guy with experience like that, I’m really excited just get out there and see what it’s like together.”

Bosa said he heard about the trade for Mack from his brother, 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa, and immediately was fired up to get ready for the season.

“I think my brother said something about it. I was like, ‘Woah, let’s work out now,'” Bosa said.

  1. Yeah he really tore it up for Oakland and the Bears. Don’t get your hopes up to high Bosa.

  2. Gonna be fun to watch these two play together. Chargers D is loaded to go with an already loaded Offense! How do they not win a SB with that roster?

  3. Unfortunately Bosa suffered another soft tissue injury while giving this interview…

  4. “Woah, let’s work out now.” Words of guys who may someday say – “Whoa, let’s head to Canton now.”

  5. As a Raider fan who hopes he falls flat on his face this year… yes he did tear it up for Oakland. He was absolutely dominant. If you don’t know that you weren’t watching.

    That said, in Chicago he got hurt all the time and that will probably continue.

  6. You just have to run at these edge rushers.

    Bosa is terrible vs the run and Mack will want to impress with sacks.
