The San Francisco 49ers probably won't make another big move at defensive end after agreeing to terms with Leonard Floyd and Yetur Gross-Matos on two-year deals. However, before news of the signings broke, the Bosa family seemed to be hoping for brothers Nick and Joey to become teammates in Santa Clara.

The brothers' mother, Cheryl Bosa, responded to an Instagram post speculating about the Los Angeles Chargers trading Joey Bosa to the 49ers. This would unite him with Nick Bosa and create a formidable family duo on the team's defensive line.

Cheryl's response?

"OMG! Do it for Mama [bear]," she shared via Instagram.

Joey has spent his entire career with the Chargers since being drafted No. 3 overall in 2016. The four-time Pro Bowl pass rusher recorded 6.5 sacks during an injury-shortened 2023 campaign that limited him to nine games. While he has only appeared in 14 games over the past two seasons due to multiple injuries, he played in 16 in 2021 and recorded 10.5 sacks.

Both Nick and Joey attended Ohio State, playing for the collegiate football program at different times. The two are close, train together in the offseason, and would obviously love to be teammates one day.

The Chargers recently overhauled their front office and coaching staff, bringing in former 49ers and Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh and general manager Joe Hortiz.

San Francisco's defensive front is also undergoing some renovations. The team plans to release defensive tackle Arik Armstead after the start of the new league year, and Clelin Ferrell and Javon Kinlaw plan to sign with other teams.

In eight NFL seasons, Joey, a four-time Pro Bowl selection, has recorded 321 tackles, 82 tackles for a loss, 143 quarterback hits, 67 sacks, three passes defensed, and 15 forced fumbles in 93 game appearances, with 84 starts.

The San Francisco 49ers kicked off organized team activities (OTAs) this week, giving reporters their first glimpse of on-field work during Tuesday's afternoon session. Among the absentees were wide receivers Brandon Aiyuk and Jauan Jennings, which shouldn't come as much of a surprise. RELATED: Brandon Aiyuk, Jauan Jennings absent from 49ers OTAs Aiyuk is seeking a contract extension and is unlikely to participate in anything voluntary while he awaits a new deal. Jennings has yet to sign his $4.89 million restricted free-agent tender, so his absence also makes

49ers' Nick Bosa opens up about Super Bowl loss and early offseason return

Nick Bosa is probably looking forward to the day when reporters stop asking him about the San Francisco 49ers' recent Super Bowl loss. Unfortunately for him, that day wasn't today. The star pass rusher answered questions from the media after the team's Tuesday afternoon practice session and was asked about his feelings regarding the game now that he's more than three months removed from it. "With the Super Bowl, unfortunately, I know how to bounce back from tough losses," Bosa said. "It was rough for a little bit, but now it's just annoying when people bring it up." Bosa stared at the reporter who asked the question, then smiled and

49ers' Brock Purdy, Nick Bosa weigh in on potential 18-game season

The NFL increased each team's regular-season schedule from 16 games to 17 games in 2020. The league is always looking to maximize revenue. An 18th game is expected in the near future, and there's no indication the NFL will halt expansion at that point. However, there are complications with lengthening the season by another week. The NFL prefers to conclude its season before Presidents Day. Adding a week to the beginning of the season could encroach on Labor Day Weekend, something the commissioner, Roger Goodell, likely wants to avoid. The NFL, a Goliath in sports, can likely do whatever it wants. This is evident in its decision to schedule games on Christmas Day—a Wednesday this year. It's a move that has rightfully

Why Fred Warner loves Nick Sorensen as 49ers' defensive coordinator

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers' decision to hire Nick Sorensen as the defensive coordinator, replacing Steve Wilks, may have surprised some within the media. However, for star linebacker Fred Warner, it was a fantastic move. Given Sorensen's familiarity with the system, Warner expects the defense to benefit from the continuity, having been part of the 49ers' coaching staff since 2022. "Nick's great, man," Warner recently told NFL Network's Steve Wyche and Judy Battista. "I love the hire. Nick has been a part of this organization for a couple of years now and has been heavily involved with the linebackers, and he's played the game for a long
