‘We want some redemption’: Nick Bosa discusses 49ers’ mindset, rookie Javon Kinlaw

Jun 25, 2020 at 5:37 PM--

The 2019 season ended just short of the San Francisco 49ers' goal. The loss in Super Bowl LIV left a sour taste in their mouths and motivated the players to seek redemption during the upcoming season.

Defensive end Nick Bosa was among several players who spoke during this week's State of the Franchise event. He discussed the mindset after last season and why it could mean bad news for opposing teams in 2020.

"Just the run we made, it was unbelievable," Bosa told Keiana Martin and Greg Papa during a group discussion. "Obviously, one team ends the season happy, and we obviously want some redemption, and that's where our focus is going to be this offseason.

"I know I've been training, and I know our team has been training really hard. We're itching to get back to work because nobody's really used to taking this long of a break before. Obviously, what's going on in the country (with the COVID-19 pandemic) is scary, and we're just hoping it gets figured out so we can get to it, get to work."

49ers decision-makers have worked hard to plug in offseason roster holes. The team drafted Javon Kinlaw to replace defensive tackle DeForest Buckner. While players haven't had an opportunity to practice together this offseason due to the pandemic, Kinlaw has made an impression on the reigning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

"Oh man, he just fits our scheme so perfectly," Bosa shared. "I know [defensive line coach Kris Kocurek] is chomping at the bit to get him in the building and get him doing some get-offs.

"I'm just so excited to play with a caliber of player like that. We were in there grinding rookie minicamp (last year), really getting to know the scheme, and it's going to be interesting to see how he picks everything up, not being in the building.

"He looks like he's going to be a great fit. He seems like a great kid."

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

Nick Bosa listed among Adam Rank's 'most egregiously off-base' Madden NFL 21 ratings

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle expressed some dissatisfaction with some of his ratings in the latest installment of the popular multi-platform football video game, Madden NFL 21. His biggest issue wasn't narrowly being denied membership to the highly-coveted "99 Club" within the game, though. Kittle's biggest gripe seemed to be his breaking-tackles rating of 81, which tied for second on the team. "If Deebo (Samuel) has a higher breaking-tackles rating than me, that's just not okay," the tight end said. "It's Deebo, isn't it?" Yes. The second-year wideout owns a rating of 83 in that category. "Sure, whatever," Kittle added. "I think I led the
