Bosa responds to Chargers' statement, will not publicly negotiate

Share This

San Diego Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa and his representatives responded to the team’s statement, that scrutinized the 2016 third overall pick for not signing his contract.

Bosa’s statement reads as follows via ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

It is unfortunate the San Diego Chargers have decided to manipulate facts and negotiate in the media. The team surely is not strengthening its relationship with Joey Bosa by taking this stance and making their position public.

We have decided that we will not engage in public negotiations or discuss numbers and/or terms in this negotiation.

We will say, that it is ironic that the team now takes issue with the timing of Joey’s arrival, since the Chargers unilaterally decided to remain silent for the first 14 days of training camp instead of replying in a timely fashion to the proposal we made on the eve of training camp on July 28th.

At this point, all we can do is continue to fight for a fair contract on behalf of our client, as we do for all of our clients. The Chargers can focus on trying to sway public opinion, but our focus will remain on our client and securing a contract for him that is fair and consistent with his draft position.

Chargers president of football operations John Spanos also blasted Bosa publicly, calling his decision not to accept the team’s offer ‘asinine’.

More to come.
