After a long silence in rookie contract negotiation talks between the San Diego Chargers and their 1st Round draft pick, DE Joey Bosa out of Ohio State, it appears the two sides have finally reopened the channels of communication.
Maybe a compromise is close. People on both sides of the dispute with knowledge of the negotiations told USA TODAY Sports that there have been talks between parties this week. The people spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the negotiations.
That the two sides are speaking – Bosa is represented by Brian Ayralt of CAA; Chargers negotiator Ed McGuire is backed by team president John Spanos — suggests a measure of progress in itself after a significant stretch of silence early in training camp.
This news, on its own, does not mean that a deal is imminent. However, last we heard, both sides were unwilling to be the first to call the other. A ongoing conversation is the only way for Bosa to ever sign and get into Training Camp.
