Look! Nothing wrong with Nick Bosa.

Photoshop. He's hurt and holding out. How could he rehab his legs if he can't reach them?

Guy is built like a tank

Dude is hella cut.

CAA is KNOWN for this. Every pick is a bet and we walked into it eyes-wide-open. I don't wont to read one line about how the two sides are far apart or some nonsense like that.

Does this count for the other front offices? Now if we are in camp and he isn't signed, I'm all with you.

I'd say it does count for other front offices also. If you have forewarning and you're signaling to a prospects camp you're definitely going to take that player, as a FO, you already have an idea of who's the representation. Between draft day and even OTAs deal structure is pretty baked, and even the money is pretty predictable. There's no reason why there should be a delay unless we're trying to be dumb like the Chargers.
CAA tries to get every last detail worked out in favor of the player. The holdouts are about signing bonus cash flow not about the actual amount the player will be paid. These guys must have a reputation with the players for getting the best deal possible because they rep a lot of guys.

Agreed NGM, with that last sentence especially. The team is not adverse or inexperienced working with CAA. We've done so in the past and have never had an issue. We drafted Solomon Thomas 3rd who is a CAA client and he was at practice day 1. Im not worried in the slightest. CAA is notorious, but so is Marathe. We have one of, if not the best, contract guys in the NFL. He ALWAYS leaves the team in a good position, but his style marries well with CAA because Marathe is not adverse to inking deals that pay the player well, but he is always insistent that those deals are constructed so that the 49ers can get out with minimal consequences if the player isn't earning that contract nearly immediately.

All teams are aware of CAA as they represent a boatload of draftees and current players. There are currently 10 unsigned picks in total and 5 of those are first rounders. Of those 5 first round picks, 4 are repped by CAA. Last season CAA repped 7 of the top 10 players selected and 5 of those 7 were without deals at the beginning of July.

Without being being privvy to the inner workings or Nick's negotiation, we cannot fairly assign blame to either side. You said it yourself, CAA is known for this which only further proves you cannot assign blame short of showing bias to one side without the inside info on what is really holding things up.
CAA is notorious for waiting till the end to get deals done, McGlinchey and Pettis are CAA clients I believe, and were the last picks to sign with us right before Camp. Paraag knows this, it's nothing to worry about. It's about offsets, and bonus payments(they get paid in 4 payments, but the timing is what CAA is working out for Bosa and the rest of their unsigned clients in the 1st rd, only Garrett Bradbury signed of their 1st rd clients).

.With the 49ers locking Robbie Gould down for a possible four more years, another contract task on John Lynch's list is knocked out. That leaves two rookies: Nick Bosa and Deebo Samuel.
They really should make the rookie deals completely set in stone so that there is no negotiation.

I used this analogy somewhere else.

Say you get hired by a company. They tell you that your annual salary is going to be $1 million dollars.

Are you cool if they give you the full million on December 31st? Or would you want them to break it up into smaller paychecks?

Extreme analogy but the point is despite the overall numbers being locked in...you can still hash out the pay structure/timing and contract stipulations for worst case scenarios.
