49ers GM John Lynch on Nick Bosa’s extension: Most likely to happen next year

San Francisco 49ers star receiver Deebo Samuel's extension talks have been at the forefront of 49ers' news this offseason. However, there is another star from the 2019 draft class that has yet to receive an extension—defensive end Nick Bosa.

Bosa, who bounced back from a torn ACL in 2020 with 15.5 sacks last season, has a different situation from Samuel, as he was a first-round pick, meaning the Ohio State edge rusher has a fifth-year option in his contract, as opposed to entering the final year of his deal.

General manager John Lynch addressed the topic at San Francisco's pre-training camp press conference on Tuesday, acknowledging that extension talks with Bosa will likely occur next year due to precedent.

"If you look at our history, our cadence, most of our deals are done with one year left on the contract, and Nick's got two years left, and so that doesn't make it impossible, but it makes it more likely that it's something that will be addressed next year. No absolutes, never say never, but here's what I do know: as long as we're here, Nick Bosa's going to be a part of the 49ers and he's going to be paid handsomely to do so. His time's coming and when it does, he'll get what he deserves, because man, what a special player."

Bosa is entering his fourth season with the 49ers and will headline a deep defensive line unit that ranked among the league's best in 2021, coming fifth in sacks, while the 49ers defense also ranked third in yards allowed per game, fifth in yards per carry, and seventh in defensive DVOA, according to Football Outsiders.

Bosa's fifth-year option for 2023 was exercised by the 49ers earlier this offseason. Currently, he stands to make $17.8 million in 2023, all of which is fully guaranteed, but that figure will likely change if an extension occurs next offseason.

49ers-Bears: How Kyle Shanahan, Trey Lance, Nick Bosa reacted to disappointing Week 1 loss

Well, that was disappointing to watch. Not just for fans but the San Francisco 49ers. Head coach Kyle Shanahan watched as his team surrendered a 10-point lead and suffered a second-half collapse to the Chicago Bears. The matchup many felt would be a gimme for the Niners in their opener ended in a 19-10 defeat and an 0-1 start to the season. What was Shanahan's message to his team after the game? The coach didn't see anything wrong with his players' efforts. There were just too many costly mistakes on which Chicago ended up capitalizing. "First thing, it starts out with is the intent and how hard everybody goes," Shanahan said. "I never felt anything wrong with that throughout the game, but you're not going to win a lot of games when you miss those opportunities

Nick Bosa is a first-year team captain. He is the only newcomer to the group of six San Francisco 49ers captains, including defensive lineman Arik Armstead, tight end George Kittle, safety Jimmie Ward, linebacker Fred Warner, and tackle Trent Williams. His teammates so respect the 24-year-old pass rusher that head coach Kyle Shanahan tasked him with the honor of giving a speech to the team the day before each game last season. That tradition carried over into 2022. "I just give the Saturday speeches after walk-throughs," Bosa said on Friday. "I was doing that all last year too." Bosa isn't very proud of his speeches from last season, but the experience was invaluable because he
