Nick Bosa, Arik Armstead to attend Von Miller’s virtual pass-rushing summit

Jun 24, 2020 at 10:53 PM--


Denver Broncos star Von Miller will once again be hosting a pass-rushing summit this offseason. This year's version will be conducted virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to a tweet by Miller, two San Francisco 49ers pass rushers — Nick Bosa and Arik Armstead — will be in attendance.


Nick Bosa's brother, Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa, will also be in attendance. The Bosa brothers have been training together this offseason.

Other attendees include Aaron Donald of the Los Angeles Rams, Myles Garrett of the Cleveland Browns, Chandler Jones of the Arizona Cardinals, Khalil Mack of the Chicago Bears, Shaquil Barrett of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Frank Clark of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Armstead recorded a team-leading 10 regular-season sacks last season while Bosa, a rookie at the time, racked up nine on his way to being named the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

San Francisco in March signed Armstead to a five-year deal worth up to $85 million.

Arik Armstead played 18 percent of his defensive-line snaps along the interior last season, according to Pro Football Focus, but that was enough to get him the votes needed to land on ESPN's top-10 ranking of the best inside defensive linemen for 2020. Writer Jeremy Fowler conducted an extensive poll involving 50 league executives, coaches, scouts, and players. "Voters gave their best 10 to 15 players at a position," explains Fowler, "then we compiled the results and ranked candidates based on number of top-10 votes, composite average, interviews, and research. We had several ties, so we broke them by isolating the

Arik Armstead continues offseason training with a familiar ex-49ers defender

Defensive lineman Arik Armstead is working hard this offseason to prove that his team-leading 10-sack 2019 campaign was no fluke, and after signing a lucrative five-year deal to remain with the San Francisco 49ers. It looks like Armstead is training with a familiar face, too. San Jose-area photographer Pierre Whitsey comes through again with some photos from San Jose State on Monday, showing Armstead training with former teammate DeForest Buckner. The 49ers in March traded Buckner to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for the No. 13 overall pick, which, after trading down one spot, ended up becoming the selection of Buckner's replacement — defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw. You can indulge in a small sample of Whitsey's photos of the two defenders
