D.J. Jones praises 49ers teammate Nick Bosa: ‘He’s like a Greek god’

Oct 30, 2019 at 11:00 AM--

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah shared this week that he was on the plane with Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa after their win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday. It was Jeremiah who informed Bosa that his younger brother, Nick Bosa of the San Francisco 49ers, had just picked off Carolina Panthers quarterback Kyle Allen.

The excited Joey was so proud of his younger brother. But he jokingly complained that, of course, Nick had to upstage him on a day when he too had an impressive outing, which included two sacks against the Bears.

Nick Bosa proved on Sunday that he is a special player. It's hard to believe that he's a rookie and not a seasoned veteran because he looks like he's been terrorizing opposing quarterbacks for years.

Bosa's teammate, defensive tackle D.J. Jones, joined 95.7 The Game on Tuesday and was asked when he realized the rookie was going to be special.

"When I first saw him in person, his frame, he's like a Greek god," Jones told Damon Bruce, Ray Ratto, and Matt Kolsky. "Just like a Greek god-like frame. I mean, he's mad athletic. He's strong. Really when I first laid eyes on him, it was like, 'Who is this?'"

Jones was asked if there is any player he feels is comparable to Bosa or is the rookie so unique that there isn't a proper comparison.

"He's just so special," Jones responded. "I haven't seen anybody like him. This past game, we were all on the sideline saying, 'I've never seen a performance like this.' Three sacks, interception, the return was better than the interception. Man, it's crazy.

"There's nobody I can compare him to. Of course, his brother, but he's a man of his own."

Bosa showed on Sunday that he is a complete player capable of taking over a game and even, at one point, ran stride for stride with the Panthers' star running back, Christian McCaffrey.

"He's an athlete," Jones said. "If you've seen his legs, he can run, he can jump. I feel like he can do it all, and I feel like he's just getting better week by week."

Joey Bosa suggests 49ers should start saving money for Nick Bosa's future contract

Joey Bosa and the Los Angeles Chargers came to terms on a five-year extension worth up to $135 million. The deal includes $102 million in guaranteed money. That's a new record for a defensive player, surpassing Myles Garrett of the Cleveland Browns. Bosa's $27 million average annual salary makes him football's highest-paid defender, according to Spotrac. Bosa is excited and grateful to have the deal done. The defender doesn't, however, expect the record amount to stand for very long. Instead, he believes it has merely helped reset the market in the right direction. Bosa even hinted that maybe the San Francisco 49ers should start saving up for a few years down the road

The play changed the course of the game. The Kansas City Chiefs converted a much-needed 3rd-and-15 from their own 35-yard line in the fourth quarter. Just like that, momentum shifted. San Francisco 49ers fans know how things ended. The Chiefs ended up walking away with the Lombardi Trophy while the Niners walked away with heartache. Many fans have seen the play over and over. Not intentionally, necessarily. For a while, that's all that was being shown on NFL Network. Fans will quickly point to defensive end Nick Bosa set on a collision course with quarterback Patrick Mahomes, though. Eric Fisher wrapped both arms around the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year as he was closing in on the sack. Was Bosa held? The defender was asked that

Nick Bosa calls rookie Javon Kinlaw 'one of the biggest humans' he's ever seen

One thing that teammates said last offseason about defensive end Nick Bosa was that he didn't seem like a rookie out on the practice field. He entered the NFL very polished, which was evident from his impressive rookie campaign. Bosa ended up reaching opposing quarterbacks nine times during the regular season and added four more sacks during the postseason, earning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. When Bosa looks at this year's top 49ers draft pick, defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, just like him before, it's sometimes easy to forget that he is entering his first NFL season. "Javon is a really good kid," Bosa told reporters on Thursday during a video conference call. "He's really hard-working in the meeting room. He knows all his stuff really
